Heather Morris' one-liners on Glee leave us on the floor cracking up every week. You'd think her background would include tons of comedy acting, but that's not the case. Before the Arizona native became our fave ditzy cheerleader, Heather was a backup dancer traveling the world with Beyoncé.

Heather performed "Single Ladies" along with B on SNL, Today, and the American Music Awards. After touring together in 2007 and 2008, Mrs. Jay-Z asked Heather to come back, but she decided not to so she could pursue acting full-time instead.

One thing lead to another and Heather was hired to teach the Glee cast the "Single Ladies" dance. Producers liked working with her so much that they hired her to play Brittany. As the season continues, Heather's been earning more air time. "I am technically not a series regular, but I'm climbing the ladder," she says. Now producers need to find a way to really highlight her amazing dancing talent in the show's choreography.
Check out Heather dancing with Beyoncé at the American Music Awards.
