Watch Britney Spears’ stunning Billboard Music Awards medley performance

By Will Stroude

Britney Spears proved she’s still every bit the princess of pop at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night (May 22), opening the night’s proceedings with a show-stopping medley performance.

The 34-year-old put on a mini-rendition of her Vegas residency show as she became just the third ever artist to be honoured with Billboard’s Millennium Award, and 2004-ney was firmly on display in a performance that paired some of her most iconic hits with some fan-favourite deep from her In the Zone album.

Opening with ‘Work Bitch’, Brit launched into ‘Womaniser’, ‘I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll’, ‘Breathe on Me’, ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’, ‘Touch of my Hand’ and finally ‘Toxic’.

Naturally, the performance has got fans nicely hysterical ahead of the expected release of new single ‘Make Me (Ooh)’ in the coming weeks – the first to be taken from her upcoming ninth studio album.

Elsewhere, The Weekend was the night’s big winner with a colossal haul of seven awards, mainly in the sales and streaming categories, while Adele took home five of the biggest prizes including ‘Top Artist’ and ‘Top Billboard 200 Album’ for 25.

The Billboard Music Awards 2016 were held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday (May 22).
