    She could find more flattering looks because it is painfully obvious she doesn't have the body she used to have.

    I'm going to this show in the fall and I can't wait. I think some of the costume choices are unfortunate, like the bodysuit from the Toxic video. That was a great, sexy costume 10 years ago when she was in her prime, but it just doesn't have the same effect today. I did like the costume in the first picture. Very flattering. I think the angel one is a good concept but poorly done; the skirt looks like a bunch of clear Hefty bags bunched up and sewed onto a cheap corset. I also liked the black fishnet leotard. The outfits that completely expose her midriff aren't flattering.

    By Fall she'll probably have toned up a little and look a lot better. How exciting for you were the tickets expensive?

    The tickets start at around $100 per person, so prices are pretty much comparable to regular concert tickets. Special packages like a meet and greet or preferred seating in the front were also available. I want to say preferred seating started at around $350 per person but I don't remember exactly. I am so excited! I've always wanted to go to a Britney concert, but I was never able to for some reason. Whenever she had a show in my town, I had something else going on. When she did her Circus tour, my parents offered to get me tickets as a birthday gift, but they were astronomically expensive by the time you factored in parking and additional fees. The show was already close to sold out, so the only seats available were nosebleed seats, and even then they were at least $200 a piece when you factored everything in. As badly as I wanted to go, I decided that it wasn't worth it. I didn't want to go by myself, and I couldn't justify my parents spending over $400 for a friend and me to watch the show on a jumbotron from nosebleed seats. You might as well just not go, and watch it on TV instead by that point.

    I feel better spending a little more money for the Vegas experience because we can make a whole trip out of it.

    'Exquisite sets and dazzling choreography': Britney Spears gets mostly flattering reviews for her new Las Vegas show

    By Daily Mail Reporter

    PUBLISHED: 12:59 EST, 29 December 2013 | UPDATED: 18:59 EST, 29 December 2013

    The reviews are in for Britney Spears' new Las Vegas Piece Of Me show and... they're far from Toxic.

    One reviewer called the sets 'exquisite' while another cited all the glorious 'razzle-dazzle.'

    The Slave 4 U singer kicked off her two-year Planet Hollywood residency on Friday with stars such as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Selena Gomez in attendance.

    According to USA Today, 'It was nonstop club tracks anchored to exquisite sets and dazzling choreography.

    'One could almost make the argument that this show might entertain a non-Britney fan because of its production values, which is likely not the case with other residencies - if you don't care for Elton John, not even a $10 million piano would keep you seated for his Vegas hit parade.'

    The LA Times described the show as marrying 'the elaborate razzle-dazzle of old-school Las Vegas entertainment with the jackhammering beats of today’s electronic dance music.'

    Spectacle: The show, pictured here, was a 90 minute whirlwind featuring a frequently airborne Britney, a ring of fire, acrobatics, pyrotechnics, rain, an army of limber dancers, a live band, and frenetic costume changes

    The 24-song concert was a throwback to a selection of her major hits, including Womanizer, 3, Baby One More Time, Everytime, Oops!...I Did It Again, and Me Against the Music, with only a few numbers off her most recent album, Britney Jean - Work Bitch and Perfume.

    Britney's voice shone through noticeably at brief times.

    'The vast majority of the show was lip-synced, and only occasionally were any seemingly live vocals heard,' said Billboard.

    'There was a certain thrill in actually hearing Spears breathing into the microphone - however infrequent.'

    Nevertheless, the lack of authentic vocals was a minor detail in the grander scheme.

    'With a performance this heavily focused on athleticism, asking a singer to deliver pitch-perfect vocals with no digital assistance is a bit like asking an NFL running back to run for 10 yards while carrying a tune - all game long,' said USA Today.

    'This wasn't Ella Fitzgerald with a pianist, it was a pop star bringing to life the songs we crank up in the shower or at the gym. It was about the wonderfully raunchy sizzle of it all, not a virgin vocal.'

    The stars attending the show appeared to have a good time - with Miley at one point almost including herself in the spectacle during the Get Naked interlude, as reported by Billboard.

    'One of the female dancers got in close to Cyrus, who was standing directly in front of the stage. Cyrus was game, and, with drink in hand, playfully stroked the dancer's face,' wrote the publication.

    'Everyone in the audience that could see Cyrus quickly lost their marbles, probably wondering if Cyrus was going to crawl on stage and join the show; unfortunately, she didn't.'

    Miley posted a photo of her at the show to her Twitter account on Sunday, with the caption, 'if you told me I'd be front row & center on @britneyspears opening night 10 years ago I wouldve never believed you'

    Fans 'who paid $2,500 to meet Britney Spears left disappointed after she spends just THREE seconds with them'

    By DONNA MCCONNELL
    PUBLISHED: 13:04, 3 January 2014 | UPDATED: 19:38, 3 January 2014


    Britney Spears's has left some of her most ardent fans disappointed after the star allegedly spent just 'three seconds' with them at an expensive meet and greet.
    Fans of the Toxic singer reportedly paid $2,500 for a VIP Meet-And-Greet session during the star's Las Vegas residency, but according to RadarOnline.com, they were granted a window of just three seconds for a photo op before being moved on.


    The calm before the storm: Just prior to her Saturday evening wardrobe malfunction, Britney Spears was enjoying belting out her hit Circus

    A source told Radar: 'Fans were told before the meet-and-greet that they were not to hug or touch Britney without her permission and they weren’t allowed to bring her any gifts.
    'And then once they finally got to meet her it was like smile, take a photo, goodbye. Each person literally got like 3-seconds with her.'
    While the price of the meet and greet included a front-row seat to Spears’ Piece of Me show in Sin City, and a bagful of Britney merchandise, the real draw for paying such a hefty price was the chance to actually meet the singer.
    And it seems her fans expectations were somewhat inflated - along with the ticket price.
    She'll be there for a while: The Toxic singer is scheduled to perform at Planet Hollywood for two years

    'Fans were anticipating a flashy meet-and-greet with Britney but instead it was just awkward and uncomfortable.'

    'She barely spoke. She just smiled and nodded and said ‘thank-you’ a lot,' the source added.
    Meanwhile Britney's boyfriend David Lucado joined her onstage at her New Year's Eve - albeit
    walking around on all fours.

    The 32-year-old singer dragged her other half up for her Freakshow track at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
    Britney's spokesman has not yet responded to request for comment.

    I'm still surprisingly confused that people are buying tickets to see this crap!! If her handlers really cared for her they'd let her sit home and eat Cheetos!!!
