16. Merry Christmas, Y'all (in March)!
Britney Spears' concerts never go by without incident. In this one, she proclaimed Merry Christmas to the crowd for reasons unknown.
This is not a surprise, as it's what Britney Spears does. But her manager, Larry Rudolph, previously stated that Spears would be singing live, claiming:
"There might be some numbers where she's full out dancing with a (vocal) track underneath her, but there won't be any lip-syncing across the board."
However, observers at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Sin City over the weekend said she was in fact lip-syncing across the board.
So maybe that's why Katy Perry was not impressed?
