Was Britney's comeback performance crashed?
If you thought Britney Spears' "comeback" performance that opened the Video Music Awards sucked as badly as I did, you may not be alone.
Evidently the reason Britney looked so unprepared and enthusiastic about her performance was because the Palms Hotel Casino and Resort pulled the plug on her magic show planned with Criss Angel.
Breatheheavy.blog is reporting that Britney and Criss had a pretty spectacular performance planned.
Britney Spears was to perform under the magic of Chris Angel... but MTV freaked out at the last minute finding out what Britney was actually going to do.
Supposedly, what Britney and Chris were planning was to do a set of mirrors and flotation. But when told to the Palms Hotel/Casino... the hotel flipped.
Insurance was the main problem, and the stage couldn't support the performance. MTV also freaked at the last minute because of their fear of being "too controversial" during the performance. Britney and Chris were infact furious with MTV's sad excuse and told Britney to change the performance at the last minute.
Britney's original performance was to infact appear and disappear. To float through the air... and for much mature dancing. (sic)
Regardless, Britney obviously never planned on singing live. She didn't even seem to know the words. I will give credit where credit is due, but I think I would have had a "plan B" if I was planning my only chance at a comeback.
The back-up dancers seemed to know what they were doing.
I'm not sure I buy it.
