Britney Spears Performannce: 2016 Billboard Music Awards and 2000 Video Music Awards

Last night, Britney Spears performed a medley of her greatest hits at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

Wearing little more than fishnets and a few strands of sparkly red fabric, Spears KILLED IT on stage and reminded us of how unique the Brit of Yore once was.

She even made us LOLz a bit.

"After tonight... All I really want is a cheeseburger," Spears posted to Instagram with a photo of her ridiculous body.

The show took place in Las Vegas, where Spears has a residency at Planet Hollywood.

Last September, the Louisiana native announced that she'll be staying on for two more years.

For those of you old enough to remember when the MTV Video Music Awards were awesome, I invite you to reminisce about Spears' performance 2000 of "Oops!...I Did It Again" (with a "Satisfaction" intro that no one will ever forget).

Sometimes when I think about trying to diet (again), I play the video and watch the late 90s/early naughts princess of pop essentially ruin it for everyone else.

Many have attempted to top it, none have succeeded.

Heidi Montag thought she may have nailed it when she dressed up like Spears at the 2009 Miss Universe Pageant and lip synced her way through "Body Language," but she failed.


True, Spears is notorious for lip syncing, but at least she compensates through the magic of dance.

Christina Aguilera is better at singing, and we never expected her to do anything beyond making genie moves with her hands.  

For either woman to try and top the other would upset the balance of nature.

Last night almost makes you forget what happened at the 2007 MTV VMAs when the then-troubled singer phoned in her performance of "Gimme More."

It was horrific.  You could almost see the cloudy haze of sedatives swirling around her head.

"The production people at MTV were freaking out."

"Nobody can tell Britney what to do anymore. No one can control her. She is a mess," a source told the New York Post afterwards.

Prior to getting on stage, Spears got her buzz on.

"She went to her hotel and ordered a bunch of food and some margaritas," the source said.

"She came down an hour later with a frozen margarita in her hand."

The past is in the past.  Let's relive last night's performance!
