Britney, who performaned at the VMAs 9 years ago in 2007, took the stage by storm with her power-packed performance.
Mumbai: Britney Spears’ last performance to ‘Gimme More’ at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2007 had received flak and the 34-year-old popstar returned to the same stage after a substantial gap of nine years, looking stunning in a yellow sequined leotard.
Her album ‘Glory’ had released on 26 August and the track ‘Make Me’ from it was out few weeks back, and there were no prizes for guessing that Britney would be performing to the number. Rapper G-Eazy, who has also given his voice in the song, made an entry midway into Britney’s performance.

The night, however, belonged to Beyonce, as her song ‘Formation’ won numerous awards along with the Video of the Year award and her performance just before Britney’s was also appreciated. While the critics point out that Britney was overshadowed by Beyonce, fans of Britney would just be happy with her ‘redemption’ on the big stage.
Britney Jean Spears was born in McComb (Mississippi) and raised in rural Louisiana (Kentwood) to Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears. As a child, Britney attended dance classes, and she was great at gymnastics, winning many competitions and the like. But, most of all, Britney loved to sing. At age 8, Britney tried out for The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1989), but was turned down due to her young age. This directed her to an off-Broadway show, “Ruthless”, for a 2-year run as the title character. At age 11, she again tried for The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1989) and, this time, made it as a mouseketeer alongside many stars of today (Justin Timberlake and J.C. Chasez of*NSYNC and Ryan Gosling). Her big break, however, came when she was signed as a Jive Recording Artist in the late 90s. With the release of her debut album, “…Baby One More Time” in early 1999, Britney became an international success, selling 13 million copies of “Baby” and 9 million (as of July 2001) of her sophomore album, “Oops!…I Did It Again”, released in May of 2000.
