Britney Spears has just kicked off her two-year Las Vegas residency by performing at her "Piece of Me" show at the Axis Theatre of the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Nevada last Friday, Dec. 27, 2013 at 9:00 pm. The show was reportedly amazing, and Spears wowed her die-hard fans that came out to watch their pop idol perform again.
Spears performed in the said show that lasted for about 90 minutes. She sang and danced to more than 20 of her songs, including her popular hits "Baby One More Time, "Toxic," "Everything," "Freakshow," "Womaniser," "Scream and Shout," and "Till the World Ends." Check out the video below to see Spears in action at the Las Vegas show.
Britney got the two-year deal to perform "Piece of Me" shows in Las Vegas for 50 times a year. Her contract will last until 2015. She has a tough act to follow because her shows come after Celine Dion and Elton John's successful Las Vegas stints. Other stars who performed in Vegas are Shania Twain and Rod Stewart. According to The Age, Spears wowed about 4,600 fans who attended the stunning performance that was filled with Spears' trademark dance moves, amazing backflips, out-of-this-world costumes and special effects, not to mention her talented back-up dancers who added to the energy of the show. It didn't even seem to matter that Spears lip-synced her songs in the show. Spears appeared on stage as an angel singing "Everything" and a dominatrix singing "Freakshow." There was even a giant tree where she sang her hit song "Toxic" as she sat on top of it. Check out her fans' reactions on Twitter: Spears' fan Antony absolutely loved the show while Gary Griffin is amazed at how Britney Spears' body looks after 14 years.
Meanwhile, some of Britney's famous fans trooped to Vegas to watch her show as well, including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Mario Lopez, Adam Lambert and Selena Gomez. Spears graciously thanked them for attending the opening night and the succeeding shows.
