The comeback that wasn't...

OK, I think I’m finally ready to admit it – I’ve outgrown the MTV Video Music Awards.
And judging from tonight’s show, so far, so have some of the actual performers, namely, Britney Spears.

I’m not a big Britney Spears fan at all. I’ve never counted her as much of a singer, but the one thing the girl could always do is dance.
Even as her personal life spiraled out of control, the one thing I figured she could always do was dance.
I mean, despite all of the craziness her life has been, the girl is only like 26 or something, right? So youth should be on her side, right?

But her highly anticipated opening performance at the MTV Awards was one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen.
I’ve watched many MTV Awards shows through the years and one of the most memorable things about the otherwise bland show in the last 10 years were Britney’s performances.
I can still see her dancing with that python, popping, gyrating, working that stage like a dancing machine.
She always commanded the stage back during those days. Unbelievably, her performance earlier tonight was just a completely different Britney.

She actually looked lifeless… scared… lost… confused… high? I’m still not sure, but she was definitely not all the way there. Her eyes looked vacant. As though somebody woke her up five minutes before the show’s start, dolled her all up and just threw her on the stage and said “Dance!”
I swear I actually saw her legs shake nervously at some points during her performance. And my heart went out to her.
I mean, it wasn’t until I saw her then that I realized I kinda wish she woulda been able to make her big comeback.
But sadly, based on last night’s performance alone, I don't think she's quite ready yet.

I’ll have more to say about the rest of the show later, like how it was one of the most visually annoying productions I’ve ever seen. Like how there was waaaay too much going on. Like how I think I need to pop an Advil after all of those wild and crazy graphics, mixed in with cut-ins to concerts going on during the awards show. But like I said, I’ll talk about all that later…

I could not agree with you more!
I'm on bored with everything you just said.

I was so disappointed with the Britney performance. I can still see her dancing with the python. I expected something on that level, but I was let down.

My heart hurts for her and her now-defunct career.
