Dressed in an uncharacteristically modest red trench coat, Spears kicked off her medley with “Work Bitch,” before shedding her modesty for a steamy — and surprisingly bend-y — performance of “Womanizer.” Then it was back to her Crossroads days for that iconic cover of “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” followed by a lesser-known gem, “Breathe on Me.”
All it took was the opening beat of “Slave 4 U” to send the audience into a frenzy, second only to the response it gave her during those familiar “Toxic” strings. Of course, Sunday’s performance was merely a taste of what Spears has been regularly serving at her Las Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me, for the past four years. (And don’t think for a second that this medley didn’t just sell a whole lot more tickets.)

In addition to performing, Spears also received the Billboard Millennium Award during Sunday’s ceremony, acknowledging her unparalleled success in the music industry.
