I’m praying that we don’t get a repeat of last year’s sad, robotic performance. This is her shot to reclaim her status as an entertainer, and not just the butt of so many jokes. I have to believe that her father and those who are managing her career at the moment would not put her out there unless she was ready and prepared to do a great job.
Here’s hoping. Good luck, Britney.
UPDATE at 9:05pm: ah, a pre-recorded comedy bit, followed by a super-quick tele-prompted intro. Whew.
I’m sure many folks will be disappointed that Spears didn’t actually perform tonight, but it was the right move. This was merely intended as a confidence booster for her, and she did just fine. She looked great!
