(Newser) – Britney Spears looked "fresh-faced and relaxed" in her role on How I Met Your Mother last night, AP reports. The pop tart played a love-struck receptionist with a big crush on Josh Radnor in her cameo on the CBS sitcom. Reviewers—relieved to see Britney on-screen and acting normally—said she turned in an OK performance.

Spears is said to be a big fan of the show, and cast members said she did a great job in her "cute, funny role." Fans hope the star's return to the small screen as a performer rather than a news spectacle marks a milestone on the road to recovery. Her father remains in control of her affairs.
