“Dancing With the Stars” is dedicating an entire show to Britney Spears Monday night – and the pop star knows it’s happening.

A source exclusively told Page Six that Spears, 39, is “aware” of the “Britney Night” tribute episode. It’s unclear, however, if she’ll be able to watch it under her conservatorship.

During Monday’s show, the 14 remaining celebrities and their pro partners will each perform a routine set to one of Spears’ classic hits. It appears they’ll also be wearing costumes and incorporating choreography inspired by the legendary singer.

“We’re doing a whole night dedicated to Britney. It’s a lot of support, a lot of love. We [support] #FreeBritney,” pro dancer Gleb Savchenko, 38, exclusively told Page Six last month. “She’s amazing … and everything’s happening for her. I’m so happy.”

Savchenko and his celebrity partner, Melanie “Mel C” Chisholm, will be dancing a tango to “Toxic.”

“It’s like the best song ever, especially for tango. It’s going to be really cool,” he teased of his dance with the Spice Girl, 47. “The costumes and the whole concept, the number, it’s really dope. We’ll definitely do something, some ’Toxic’ sexy moves.”

“Britney Night” couldn’t have come at a more perfect time, as Spears just had a big win in court last week. As Page Six previously reported, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny suspended the Grammy winner’s estranged father, Jamie Spears, as the conservator of her estate.

“Although there is change and things to celebrate in my life, I still have a lot of healing to do !!!” the singer shared via Instagram over the weekend. “Thankfully I have a good support system and am taking time to understand it’s ok to slow down and breathe !!!!!”

She added, “Only through self love I can pray … love … and support others in return !!!!”

“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
