Britney Spears Does Good Morning America

Published: Tuesday 2nd Dec 2008 by Sam
Following her whirlwind promotional trip to Europe this past week, Pop superstar Britney Spears celebrated her birthday today (as well as the release of ‘comeback’ LP ‘Circus)’ on Good Morning America with two special performances. She also announced that she she will be touring on home soil with the Pussycat Dolls as special guests. Check out Britney’s performances of ‘Circus’ and ‘Womanizer’ below:

Circus

Womanizer

Interview

Good stuff, if only for the energetic atmosphere and stage spectacle. Though she’s just about doing enough to make this album and project more generally be her ‘Mariah Emancipation Comeback’ I’m gonna need ol’ Britney to give me some umph in future showings. Is it me or could she move a lot better before? I’m talking Janet-esque moves with some serious stage swagger? Time will tell if the so-so’ness of her recent showings is nothing more than ‘rust’ or a case of us having to make do with the Diet Coke Britney…kinda like how we’re making do with the almost expired Mariah Carey. Things that make you go hmmm…

What do you think of the performances?

Will you be buying ‘Circus’?

Has Britney still got ‘it’?

    to me her rehearsals are crazy good, like her old selfbut when she gets around the public she doubts herself which i guess is only normal after everthing that happened. i do believe that as time goes on and she gets more comfortable with herslef and others sh’ll be back to her old self but all in all she’s still got that huge star presence

    little jj is so presh!

    OK, lets just be real..these performances were not that good, i agree with Sam..she seems a little rusty…like shes not moving like that old Britney! Which isnt to be expected after everything shes been through, but i feel like if your going to make a come back, MAKE A DAMN COME BACK! But i am team Britney and i want nothing more then for her to succeed…so hopefully she will get better and better…but these last 2 performances Sam posted were like…arghh..idk Brit maybe its time to retire, its all or nothing, fans wont except anything less.

    I think she’s still fearful onstage since the VMA peformance. She’s still not confident onstage. Like someone said, she’s amazing in rehearsals but not so much when she gets on stage. But I feel come time for the tour she will be doing the damn thing again. I think she’ll get her confidence back.

    These are her best performances yet, but let’s be honest, they weren’t great (well imo anyway). And do they really expect us to believe that they were live, lol?…Well, whatever, Circus was definitely the best performance of the two. I don’t know what it is, but it’s like when Brit performs ‘Womanizer’, she just can’t be bothered.

    She needs to fix up fast or this ‘comeback’ will be pointless because she won’t get that far with performances like these. She’s already getting slammed for her ‘X Factor’ performance last week. Like someone else said though, hopefully as she performs more and starts feeling a little more comfortable and whatnot, she’ll put more oomph into her performances and show everyone that she still has ‘it’ because that girl could really dance.

    Sam you are a f****** hypocrite. you watch the heffa lip sync through all he performances and you enjoy it.
    yet you hate on Rihanna who sings live. go figure. maybe you think if its white its alright. I think you have a color complex problem

  7. puertorropuro December 2, 2008

    wow i dont want to sound mean but that was crappy ive seen better performance in high-school talent showcases. i mean come on people is this really what we are settling for in music and performances. i understand that shes coming back from her crazy moments but still if your not ready your not ready and it obvious shes not ready yet. i aint mad but i def dont think it was good at all. she need to jsut go and practice and find her good space or place on stage and work with different choreographers cuz her show as a whole doesn’t fit her yet!

  8. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    I agree, I think Britney is slowly getting back in the feel of performing again. So hopefully her choregrapher that making these routines step her game up. I wish Wade was around RIGHT NOW but unfortunately we will have to wait til to tour to see what she and Wade come up with. But as a Britney fan, I feel Britney is a lil rusty but I know she can and will do better.

    I think the Circus performance was quite good…not perfect but wayyy better than Womanizer…n it got me anticipatin for the vid too…

    I like Britney Spears. I could not wait to watch her performance. However, when Britney danced she seemed stiff and relied on her dancers to carry the performance. IMO I know she has not performed for a big audience for long time. I just want to see the Britney that performed the Toxic song during the VMAs. The show was good but not great. I wanted to see her perform at her concert next year, but she does not come to my city. She has to start dancing again for her tour if the P**** Cats Dolls are opening up for her. I enjoyed listening to her new album, and I am sure she will be successful. I liked her previous album too. She just did not promote the album enough (hard times).

    Well it’a good improvement from last year, with her so called comeback, so this isn’t really a comeback. IMO, it’s just a better album, with better promotion, and a better attitude. She played all the right moves, so did her good-ass PR team, so I appluad her for that. The album isn’t her best, but it’s enough to get by. Hopeully when tour season rolls by, she’ll get her dancing in order. Britney got back in the spotlight, so if she’s serious, she better prove it.

  13. knox December 2, 2008

    Circus performance was better than Womanizer…womanizer performance reminded me of the vma performance.mayb its just coz the choreography 4 womanizer is SHITT!LOL.

    performances not there yet
    will not b buying the album
    she doesnt have it yet….

    Sam u are fast becoming a jock rider because those performances were a joke compared to where Britney was in her hey day.You claim Mimi is expired at the rate Brit is going she is too. She and Bee are peers and Bee is still doing the damn thing. Also lip syncing is excepted if she moved more but ole chick was stiff as hell and you know it. If you go hard on Mimi or Rihanna Britney can get it too. Especially when dancing is her focal point.

    well the theme and everything is really nice, but the girl cant dance? in te beginnin i wa slike, well she will get beter, back to old brit.. BUT NO she still sucks.. She needs to practice more i gues?
    But nice theme!

    I WISH HER THE BEST !!!

    and i’m a janet jackson die hard fan

  17. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    It’s like she is doing the moves but not getting INTO the moves. She seems too self conscious on stage causing her to look stiff. She just needs to let go…. because it’s there, she just needs to go for it! Today’s show was better than the VMA’s but I felt the same way then, that she didn’t go for it, she held something back. I hope with some more practice and on-stage experience, she can get it together quickly. 🙂

    i honestly dont care if someone lip-syncs as long as i have something to watch. if rihanna did i wouldnt care but she has no stage presence. so hopefully brit brit gets back to her old self. i think she’d be more comfortable during her tour with her fans who have loved her reagardles of her mistakes.

    Sheeeeeee’s BACK!

  20. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    I dont know who is worse Britney or Rihanna, when did lip syncing become so in style?

    And people act like they like it, I’m sorry but I want pay for something I can do at home just as better..

    I’m glad for her on a personal level but this stuff has got to stop, Rihanna has gotten away with enough for people to actually want actual talent (Beyonce) to prevail…

    This was a typical so called pop star (Rihanna, Brit) performance..

  21. inebriated December 2, 2008

    she gets better with every performance, i really think she’s holding back for some award show or something big.

    but she gives glimpses that she still has it, i mean she killed it on top of the stage at the beginning of circus

    i was hoping she and ciara would tour. then again that could be embarrasing for her

  23. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    SHE DOESNT HAVE IT Dead at her trying to go slow on Womanizer acting as if she was singing!

    LMAO! Her and Janet are the worst MIMERS/Lip-syncers ever! Everyone knows they cant sing and only dance.

    She was hotter on Circus but yea still traveling back to 07 MTV Awards

    Ciara Madonna even Janet Still upstages her anyday.

  24. Corey December 2, 2008

    Deco still not the britney for way back when. Still see similarites of the old terrifying performances(mtv awards) Idk bout buying album but I will buy her singles on Itunes like I did Womanzier.
    Any 2 post above me… I agree I want her and Ciara to tour that would be awesome. And I kind of agree. Ciara will perform better then this Britney now. But the old Britney it would be the best performance/tour ever. PURE entertainment and literally like a Janet and Madonna tour that never happened. Oh I WISH! 🙂

  25. Corey December 2, 2008

    Oh and happy bday Brit!
    I still love the TOXIC Brit MORE!
    WOW People really dont like Rihanna I think she is a okay kind of gal. With a nice accent to carry with her voice. Because vocals are certainly her setback in her whole talent department. But hey she is still good.
    I like the Shotouts. Hugh could actaully sing idk why ppl rumor him to be gay!?
    Taylor is a nice and a true fan, now Brit time for you to go get her album! lol
    She is ending tour in Chicago April 28th I think I seen it. But yeah I still wish Ciara was on it now I think about it more and more.

  26. Jammie December 2, 2008

    Still lip-syncing I see. After 27 yrs still havent developed a voice to control while dancing. Sad and to think all the honors and accolades she have gotten.

    Dancers kilt the show not her still lifeless and blah I wish the old britney would raise from the dead!
    She need to take more notes from Madonna and Janet. And become a Close friend or even a BFF with Ciara!

    Idk about buying album……oh Happy Birthday wish you many more! (Sidenote: so agree with the Rihanna comments)

    ahhhh man – such a horrible and poor performance

    lip-sync and boring – i think its about time we move past britney and move onto better things

  28. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    Britney Spears will always have IT! ‘Blackout,’ should have been her 5th consecutive number 1 album but Billboard/Nielsen, or whoever screwed her over and ironically changed the rules and let selected store released be able to chart to (Eagles Nov. 2007 release only at Wal-Marts).

    Regardless I think ‘Circus,’ will bring Britney back to her number 1 album stats.

    Also by the looks of “Circus,” it will exceed “Piece Of Me,”s number 17 Hot 100 level too!

    Good luck Britney!

    Britney goes from dancing to half ass dancing?? That breakown was wack. How you gonna set us up for a breakdown, and then start walking around in the middle of it? I’m glad she getting herself together but comeone! If britney was black she would be getting all kinds of s***! Her hair to me always looks a mess, and her dancing is below youtube par. But Janet turns 40 and still kills and everyone wants to tell her to sit down and go somewhere. That’s bull.

  33. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    She is just getting her feet wet. Taking baby steps with her performances. I would say it was average. But, her tour doesn’t start until march. I believe by then with enough practice she will be back to her old self. I mean give her a break, it is only her second performance!

  34. QueenBeyonceFan December 2, 2008

    I wasnt even thinking about Ciara until I read the comments and I have to say I cant disagree with them. Im like Jammie all these years still not singing live, no excuse. Still not at best crowd is cheering because they are stans and helping to motivate this Britney to become the toxic britney.

    Sam and everyone else said it best go more Janet/Madonna-esque moves and become Ciara’s bestfriend. hehehe

    Britney never could sing, ya’ll know that. And she knows she doesn’t need to because ya’ll just want to SEE her dance. And still PAYING for her to do nothing. Get It Britney from these dumb b******!!

  36. Anonymous December 2, 2008

    Let’s not compare Janet and Britney here. There is no comparison. Janet outshines Britney any day. If it weren’t for Janet, Britney would not exist. This whole complete lipsynching thing that Britney has been doin and even tries to convince people that she never lipsynchs is RIDICULOUS. Being a Janet fan, I know that Janet does it, hell so does Michael and Madonna and Mariah and Beyonce. But Britney just takes it to a whole other level. You know, at least Janet will record a real live vocal backing track that is different from the actual recordings and more recently Janet has been doing a lot more live singing. Will Britney ever sing a song live? And then to half ass it too?

    VERY POOR PERFORMANCE. BRITNEY, I’M SORRY, BUT LOOKS LIKE UR ‘GOOD’ DAYS ARE BEHIND YOU, MAY BE U SHLD LOOK INTO ACTING AGAIN INSTEAD OF SINGING CUZ U CLEARLY CAN’T SING OR DANCE.

You stupid b****** aint pleased wit s***, f*** everybody is sayin janet janet janet and people put her under the bus as well. F*** u all… britney aint britney from the slave 4 u days so get over it… She’s been there and done that and its over. Good damn there is just so much hate on a b**** it aint even funny, and then you all are still gonna go out and cop her album. Get um brit!!!! F*** these haters.

  39. Jammie December 3, 2008

    Speaking of Janet OMG did you hear Sam its a big rumor and LOTS of radios/blog sites are talking about it. That JD got Janet PREGGO! WHAT! Its rumored to be her FIRST! HA! Lol…. does James Debarge and secret child ring a bell. That girl is what 18/19 yrs old and looks just like her and the rumor was about 19/20 yrs ago so yeah you do the math.
    How could I forget that! Lol

  40. Tam December 3, 2008

    I know this performance was ok at best not hating its the truth!
    Let BEYONCE/Ciara come out there half stepping and fake singing~critics/bloggers/news stations will all be on their case in a negative way. Saying their careers are over and such to the end of time. No one will let it die down… hell let the legends Janet/Madonna give a performance like this. WHATS Really GOOD,people definitely will say your run is over time to hang it up and bow out gracefully. And Such. So there is NO excuse for the Slave 4 u/HMB1T/ Toxic Britney to bring forth this Britney. Then perform like that.This is her BIG Comeback from drugs/insanity/ and everything under the sun! She is GOING Backwards not FORWARDS, I hope its BABY Steps and the doctors are working on her to save her life/career. Cus thats the only reason except for she lost it!

    ^HARSH^ all I care about is the music to be honest, & the 'circus' album is a pop gem I'd give the cd 9/10. More dancy, funky & melodic than 'i am sasha fierce'. Britney now is better than any rihanna performance as well. I agree sam – britney is rusty at the moment, if you've got 'it' i dont think u can ever lose 'it'… but still be affected by things…like mariah, janet & madonna have all done. Yes beyonce's performances are hot all the way just now but i truley believe britney will get back all the way. I predict in a year or two with her NEXT album!

    DELUSIONAL is such a strong word… F*** you !!! Beyonce can’t come up with her own Idea’s to save her life. That b**** done took Kylie Minogue’s whole stage set, recycled Dances from the DC tour for her award shows, ain’t give neyo credit for s***, got her ass sued by desiree, singing songs that were already made by other indie artist, got Jlo’s dress from 10 years ago for her new video, and ain’t give them 3 chicks no credit until put on blast about the single ladies video… we can go on for days so f*** you b**** your delusional. and lets not even talk about how she puts dangerously in love out after the DC album only to once again make her own group members look stupid as f*** cause guess who wasn’t singing s***????? The only b**** in the game that had some innovation died on Aug 25th 2001. Britney is an icon and no one cares if she lip sync her ass straight to the top. No matter what you cant take away what she has done. Talentless my ass she is who she is for a reason. So open your f****** eyes…And why is rihanna always getting the heat too??? that b**** has not left the top of the charts since her album came out!!! I guess I don’t got my eyes open enough to see that too. You haters can go to f***** hell… Give credit where credit is do.

    P.s and For the Record (beyonce ain’t had a good album since her 1st one) Diva my ass should have just called it a milli part 2!!!!!
    Now go hate on me Stupid B****!!

    Britney Spears is talented. The people who criticized Britney’s performance on GMA including me wanted the old Britney back (majority of the people’s comments). We know she can dance and sing, and we just want the Britney Spears that performed Oops!… I Did It Again during the VMAs. If the true fans does not tell Britney Spears the truth about her performance than she will be committed to putting on shows like the GMA performance. We want Britney Spears to be successful and a good entertainer like the past. She knows how to dance and put on a good performance. She had time to prepare for this performance. We know she can do better. Criticizing an artist performance does not mean we do not like them. We just do not except a crappy performance from one our favorite artist. She did not dance and allowed her dancers to carry the performance. She needs to be the star of the show and not the dancers. I am sorry if we hurt your feeling. We need to stop being fanatics and be just fans of her music and performances. Fanatics think everything their favorite artist does is awesome.
