FUCK 2008! IN OUR EYES LAST NIGHT WAS BRITNEY’S OFFICIAL COMEBACK!
Last night was Britney’s dress rehearsal for friends and family before her official Grand Opening tonight 12/27 and while her performance was not up to par to her 2004 glory days, it definitely was her best performance since then!
Britney opened the show with Work Bitch which was the perfect song because she immediately gets down to some intense choreography proving that dancing Britney is back bitch!
She then goes into Womanizer where she does a lot of walking and arm choreography which we don’t totally mind. She finally takes a brief break to address her audience and asks them to help her count to “3” which was her first performance that used props which wheel her around the stage.
The exact order of the rest of songs are a bit of blur since we had a couple of double vodka /sodas but she also performed Everytime, Slave 4 U, Gimme More, Baby One More Time, Break The Ice, Freakshow, Boys, Crazy, Toxic, Perfume, Piece Of Me and Till The World Ends for the big show finale!
Scream N’ Shout and Get Naked also played but she didn’t actually sing/perform them. Instead were used as songs to play during Britney’s quick changes. One of our biggest disappoints of the show is that Britney didn’t perform Scream N’ Shout which is so odd given how HUGE the song was… definitely bigger than anything off Britney Jean.
Aside from a giant tree in which Britney bungee jumps off during Toxic, nothing about the show really stood out as an element that could only be found in Vegas. To be honest, her show really just felt like another concert tour. However, we did attend a “dress rehearsal” so we definitely expect a ton more additions and improvements in shows to come ….we hope!
Like most dress rehearsals, the stage felt awkwardly massive and empty due to the lack of props, elements and features that have not yet been incorporated. At the same time though, the lack of typical Britney fireworks, put the spotlight on Britney herself and she definitely was able to carry on the show just fine without all the hoopla!
GO SEE PIECE OF ME!
IT’S FUCKIN BRIT-MAZING!
