    i LOVE LOVE LOVE britney but hve to say that this wasn’t performance at all!

  • MAYJAHYN

    LOVE HER! AMAZING! THIS WAS A SURPRISEAPPEARANCE NOT A “BRITNEY PERFOMANCE” THAT’S WHY IS SHORT! BUT ANYWAYS BRIT TONITE KILLED IT! SHE IS THE QUEEN OF POP! CANT WAIT 4 FEMME FATALE TOUR (=

  • asha

    Why would anyone pay upwards of $300 to see Britney lip synch for two hours. It baffles me how she can get away with something so OBVIOUS at an award show. I love her music but she is a crappy performer.

  • roro

    omg britney its not back people stop saying that do you remember how she was before? i mean she sucks now comparing to the 2000`s

  • BeyonceLover

    TERRIBLE “PERFORMANCE”…SHOULDA STAYED HOME AND TAKE CARE OF HER KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • oheneba1

    Wow cant wait to see britney ..love loved that performance…stunning..love Britney

  • lissett

    this is sad.

  • E Girl

    I’m not a Britney fanatic but I like her tracks…they’re bop your head in the car type songs…but tonight wad just awful!!!

    She doesn’t take command of the stage anymore. She’s like a zombie, even Kesha came out with more stage presence.

    Britney is a tool now with a great team of producers that know how to pick dance tracks. But the girl can’t sing or dance now. I wanted Til the World End to have a kick ass performance to match the song but eww…she just doesn’t have it anymore.

    Now what Beyonce did?! love or hate the song was FREAKING FAB!!! That’s how you move on a stage.

  • E Girl

    @MAYJAHYN:

    Even if it’s a surprise you should come out and rock it full force!! I know she has said she’s working her butt off for this album but her performance/presence just doesn’t show it.

    Something is for sure…off.

  • santa

    Washed up

  • lilia mazunina

    I DON’T LIKE THE PIC ‘CAUSE SHE GOT HER MOTHER’S FACE HERE

  • miley

    PERFECTTTTTTTT!

  • 2011=Gaga and Bey year.

    That tour will be a hot mess. I will not pay a penny to see her on tour because she has no talent. Beyonce and GAGA are on another level which is why they are the Biggest pop stars in music today.

  • Carmen

    I don’t Know why everyone is DISSING B she sang one line.. Nicki Is the one that sounded like s%^T.. she sound like a dying cat live. and she is the only Female rapper to ever have as many hits on B.B sad sad sad… LIL KIm needs to come back!!!

  • anon

    I don’t think Britney loves it anymore. She’s even sporting a fake smile in the picture above. IDK what’s up, but she’s no where near as exuberant and commanding as she used to be. It likes she doesn’t care.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    Britney was the ONLY “artist” who lip synced tonight. LMAO ..And she did it twice!

  • kls

    lol @ all you guys hatin.. britney was there to support her girls rhi & nicki, i don’t know what the f*** you expect her to do. i thought she did great and looked very beautiful!

  • DeMarco

    Britney Spears is voluptuous, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful. She has a stunning figure and excellent body overall. With her ample cleavage, fuller legs and fuller backside, she is very sexy.

  • hey you stupid

    hahahaha look at these tone deaf sheep saying how amazing britney is
    sorry if britney is a good performer that means she can dance and sing- both of which she did not do on the billboard awards
    this tour is gunna be shit

    gaga and beyonce rule the world
    goodbye shitney spears

  • sourpatch575

    DID YOU GUYS SEE 3:42 ?!?!
    I am ashamed of you Britney.
    Trying to cover up how you don’t sing live and make a fool out of yourself.
    Come back to us!

  • DTX

    Can you say Milli Vanilli! Great songs until the track messes up LIVE. Bound to happen!

  • S

    okay, I love britney and she looked gorgeous but that was a waste of time. She should have danced or something. What was the point of her holding a mic. At least when she has a head piece on she gives a performance but this wasnt a performance.

  • Nikki

    Brittney Spears was out way before Lady Gaga and Beyonce. We all watch her for years to know that she can sing and she’s one of the best dancers; way better than Gaga. Stop hating on people who are trying to pick themselves back up! We all fall short sometimes. Besides the only reason that society is even up Beyonces ass is because she hasn’t had a public fall yet. And who in the hell sings about a demons name Judah?? Hello!!

  • samantha

    britney sang 15 seconds of her song and actually wasn’t doing any dancing, and she STILL couldn’t sing for real? why does she always look pissed in her videos now? she’s not back at all, she hates her life more than and clearly it shows, and her fans can tell. i would pay $200 to see brit not bust out ONE dance move and actually SING LIVE.

  • Anonymous

    @Nikki: She was not out before Beyonce.

  • Nikki

    Irregardless @ Anonymous ; ). She did have the balls to come out by herself as appose to using back up until she felt liked and ready enough to stand alone. I do like Beyonce. I’m a fan of all these women out there doing there thing. But don’t place one over the other as if they’re objects.

    I mean .. from here I’ve stated what I felt like stating. I’m not going to remain on some dumb comment board full of people who don’t know enough about themselves that they have to rely and knit pick and some celebs they do not even know

    Have a nice life. Peace : )

  • SEM

    I wish britney would just retire and stop embarrassing herself, it’s just sad at this poing.

  • BJS

    Britney was a disappointment at tonight’s billboard music award! She’s not back; She’s still fat! Man, I know her career WILL be OVER if she doesn’t work hardER on her dance routine and lose more weight (and forget all that BS about how she didn’t want to be thin anymore because she was concerned about how younger girls who looked up to her might end up dealing with anorexia). That’s just lazy talk. Watch what and how much you put in your mouth and you WILL lose weight. Once Britney is thin again like in the 2000s, she will naturally gain the confidence to be GREAT again. Trust me, I know.

  • Eww

    Ugh! Britney is still chubby. BJS is soooo right. Nobody wants to see a fat girl flapping her arms around on stage.

  • lies

    DESPERATE AND PATHETIQUE HAS BEENS ………………………… THEY’RE OVER.

  • SHIT

    I’m actually watching the performances of last night and yet , Britey is the only one who lip sing TWICE ! How on earth would she expect us to pay 200$ to see her just shaking around for 2 hours ! Really expensive when you know that BEYONCES are like 70$ .

  • OMG

    THOSE SHORT FAT ELEPHANT LEGS ARE NO MISTAKING BRITNEY’S…………. SO STOCKY. HORRIBLE BODY…HAS NOT LOST WEIGHT…STILL FAT…

  • Audrey

    Geeeeez, it was HORRIBLE!
    They both suck.

  • Amelie

    CAN’T SING CAN’T DANCE
    Britney go home and lipsync there!

  • RenzkiG

    hate her? love her? she is BRITNEY SPEARS :)

  • erin

    All of you people need to shut up because guess what britney spears is and still that bitch and do you really think she cares if you come to her concert the show will go on with or without you clowns. Why would she bust moves if she was just coming out for a lil snippet. Nicki minaj was the terrible one. Britney will still cutting checks while your on the internet talking crap LOL

  • Ida

    That was just strange…why do you people still love Britney so much? She doesn’t sing, she barely even performs since she was there for what like 10 seconds and she doesn’t even dance anymore. So seriously, why are you still her fans? Why are you buying her stuff? I guess she’s become a human brand, a symbol for people to project all kinds of qualities to and all she has to do anymore is show up and smile and people go crazy and buy everything her team has to sell.

  • TRUTH HURTS.

    Britney lip-syncing was so damn obvious and her fans thinks she is talented. B!tch needs to go home and stay home.

  • amand

    i used to be a HUGE Britney fan, until ITZ.. she was a great performer, she wad even singing live. i regret that she cannot do that anymore …

  • amanda

  • lilia mazunina

    MINAJ NEEDN’T THIS CHICKEN 2 COME UP 2 HER ‘CAUSE SHE’S THE FAT CHICKEN HERSELF. LOL!
    ‘N WHAT 4 THAT ASS SHAKING, BEHIND BRITNEY IN THE END?!
    HATE EVERYTHING: THIS PERFORMANCE, CHOREOGRAPHY, STUPID BACKUP DANSING 4 MINAJ ‘N THIS MONKEY NICKI!!!

  • haters are sad

    @BeyonceLover: you know beyonce would have never made that comment. she has too much class! brit is britney! way to go ladies!

  • yajaira

    do us a favor and RETIRE, pathetic….

  • Lucy

    Why do her fans have to make so many excuses for her? “What do you expect,” one asked. Gee, we expect her to actually be able to sing like everyone else. “It was only an appearance.” So shouldn’t she still try for “just an appearance,” out of respect for her fans. Let’s face it – anyone who lip syncs for every single appearance for 5+ years (and walks around flapping her arms instead of dancing) is no longer a performer and she clearly has no respect for her fans.

  • Amory

    Britney has a strong resemblance to Jessica Simpson here.

  • Chance Michael Robinson

    @Carmen:

    DId it ever occur to you that the reason nicki sounds like that is because she actually was LIVE! and move around the stage?? artist dont usally do that together! and plus she’s a rapper not a singer!! AND LAST! Lil Kim NEEDS TO STAY HER OLD DUSTY ASS WHERE SHE IS! KIM HAD HER CHANCE BUT NICKI STILL OUT DOING HER!

  • anon

    @OMG: $200…sh*********************************************t. That can’t be right. There must be some cheap seats that cost considerably less.

  • anon

    @erin: You’re on the internet talking crap too.

  • catherine

    although the performance was not good, i still adore britney. it looked like she put forth 6% of her energy into that 15 sec performace. but who cares. it’s britney beotch!

    nicki rocked like aways. and her performances are so entertaining!

  • jol

    @Ida:
    Britney has got to a place in her life where she can just stand there and flash us with that beautiful smile of hers and her fans will just go crazy for her… she has always been a down-to-earth, not take her so seriously, funny girl… she has never been a fake person…
