Britney Spears ‘Performs’ On ‘Kimmel’

Published: Wednesday 30th Mar 2011 by Sam

The Britney Spears promotional train pulled into the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios late last night. With several hundreds in attendance, the 29 year old put on some kind of ‘performance’ in support of her new ‘Femme Fatale’ LP.

After catching a lot of flack for her less than stellar showings as of late, did Britney redeem herself with this performance? Find out after the jump…

As evidenced above, Spears’ performances are still almost tragic to watch.

It’s like she just grabbed the CD from her glove compartment, put it in her boombox, pressed play and started walking and pointing while her dancers put on a show.

For yours truly, it’s as clear as day that she isn’t cut out for ‘this’ anymore. At least not now, and not in ‘this’ state. Neither the passion nor drive are there. Perhaps she should assert her will to nurture those before making any serious attempt at performing, because this is embarrassing.

Your thoughts?

    Well this is perfect her stans, who along with Rihanna stans dont care about talent anyway.

  2. Hell No March 30, 2011

    She thinks the dancers make up for her lack of ability, but they just show her up more. It’s like she knows the moves but just can’t be bothered. Femme Fatale was suposed to be THE COMEBACK but its been ruined slightly by these lacklustre performances. STOP DOING THEM – let the album promote itself.

  3. E11 March 30, 2011

    crazy/delusional fans will still buy this and think this is the best thing since slice bread. #notme

  4. Emiliya March 30, 2011

    Is it possible to be a great dancer and then just forget how to dance? Maybe it is….. Sad for her

  5. Paigej March 30, 2011

    Poor Britney

  6. E11 March 30, 2011

    LOL@ the fact that she doesnt even have a mic. she’s not evven trying to hid that she is not actually singing (although we all know). If u aint lipsynching, at least dance. #dumbhoe

  7. a.d.R.I.a.n. March 30, 2011

    This b**** has nothing to prove anymore. Let her queef in a mic and it won’t pull a CiMeFlop/MooMoo Cowrey/Xtina and it’ll actually sell.

    Britney doesn’t need to lift a finger anymore. She’s done her thing and has a whole basement full of wigs that she scalped. Let her raise her kids, let the legend rest.

    P.S. Samantha wasn’t such a shadey b**** on this one. I agreed with most of her post. lol

  8. tony March 30, 2011

    I think her knees must be bad which is why she cant dance like she use to, plus the drugs from her past mustve have contributed to it as well. Have you noticed that her dance steps are pretty much the same, with her hands it the air, then out to the side, the head tossing followed by turning around in a circle.

  9. tony March 30, 2011

    even Madonna who is almost twice her age can do better than this….imagine Britney in 20-30 yrs time….she’ll be in a wheel chair and all she’ll have left is her head tossing and hands in the air

  10. jemm March 30, 2011

    lol @E11she had a mic on you blind s***.

    WTF!! I think the drugs gave her brain damage.

  14. kay March 30, 2011

    quick question to all the negative people …what white female pop or rnb star can dance better than she did on the stage ………………..cause in rihanna beyonce ga ga kety perry pink kesha xtina could not pull of a routine like what she just did ….even at britneys works she better than every other chick out there thats …..think hard and find another artisit that can even do what she did on that stage ….

  15. Really….. March 30, 2011

    I just feel bad for her. I wonder if she even wants to do this anymore. I heard Carson Daly complaining about how his interview with her had to be pretaped and sent to her managers for editing. I think they are forcing her to do this. She hasn’t done any interviews what so ever. I just feel like she should stop. She had worked hard for years and years, being used by the people around her and she just looks defeated.

  16. Craggle March 30, 2011

    I’m sorry but I don’t understand why your all moaning?? I actually thought the two videos were good. Ok the hold it against me she is lacking in the performance, but could that be the choreagraphy (can’t spell it lol) who made the dance for her, that would be there fault? Yeh Britney is older and not in her youth but she comes back strong everytime, the video above for till the world ends. She’s doin more dancing and looks great. At the end Of the day you lot complaining about her not dancing or singing. Well don’t watch it !! Plain and simple !!! Also she’s not madonna she is Britney spears !!! Why keep comparing her to her when they are totally different !!

  18. parisian girl March 30, 2011

  19. BIrdyLove March 30, 2011

    Britney spears is coming to a end career wise! After her performances her songs actually went down on itunes LOL!

    she is such a wack performer if she cant be botherd to even try then she should quit its sad but britneys album will do well for 1-2 weeks and then it will flop

    Look at till the world ends its a terrible flop on a global scale, her new music is wack and her performances are Lame

  20. QUEEN RIHSUS March 30, 2011


  21. Travis March 30, 2011

    The real pop artist on earth!
    Femme Fatale is the best…ever!

  22. amy March 30, 2011

    haters gonna hate.
    Femme Fatale #1 on iTunes.
    Maybe 2011 is not her prime time anymore, but, Femme Fatale still an ‘amazing masterpiece’ and i doubt Rihanna, Gaga, and Beyonce can achieve somethin like Britney did in her career.

    Femme Fatale received positive reviews all around the globe. Congrats Britney.

  23. Laurie March 30, 2011

    Embarrassing that’s the word. She so awkward to watch this is so sad moving like a 100 yeard old when you’re only 29 so so sad. Girl come on Madonna next to you is fire she’s like 50 what is wrong with you Britney ??

  24. MT March 30, 2011

    Acuactually she killed the last part of the choreography on HIAM but it didn’t show on tv. Check out the fan video on b***********. She had a lot of energy

  25. The Life Size Bobble Head Formally Known As Rhitard The Goat March 30, 2011

    I think she should jus retire! Since GAGA blew up everybody who tired 2 put out an album has FLOPPED, BADLY!!!!!!(except QUEENBEY) Oh the mighty have fallen and its jus sad!!!!!

  26. Jay March 30, 2011

    Umm how is Femme Fatale a flop??? and I’m sorry but that was her best performance since ’04..your just a hater at this point

  27. BAA March 30, 2011

    ROLL CALL B******! @ A.d.r.i.a.n Sityo delusional dumbass all the way down with that dumb ass comment. Whitney and Mariah have completed way more and are legendary and shits all over Britney and they are singing live and are giving fans good music so u are DISMISSED! @ Queen Rihgoat Girl dont disrespect Jesus for filthy nasty w**** u called a fav. Ur fav aint even respected in the industry, just take a look at this pass Grammys LMAO. The w**** has put out 5 albums and havent sold over 10million in the US, can u say FLOP! @Kay Girl just kill ur self for that retarted ass comment, u truly put the D in delusional, you dumb b****! @Amy Girl aint nobody checking for that Euro pop trash Britney has just release. The coke head probably didnt know it came out yesterday. I bet her manager had to tell her LMAO. That nappy headed b**** wish she could see QUEEN B, and Gaga. The b**** doesnt even have a hold over her career. She might as well hang it up, cause Gaga and QUEEN B are gonna snatch that shitweave.

  28. NIka March 30, 2011

    poor lil tink-tink…STOP THE MEDS ON BRIT BRIT..

  29. royalkev March 30, 2011

    In all honesty, these performances are lacking. I along with some others don’t understand how Britney is so young, but not still in her prime. I don’t know if it’s that she’s over this music business or just unable to keep up. It’s painful watching her move around like a zombie, barely being able to execute these simple moves. I see why now, she rarely performed live in almost 10 years. Xtina’s “Bionic” performances were still great – vocally and dancing wise (especially those for Burlesque) and they came out at the same time.
    After seeing Janet in concert the other weekend, this is just sad. Jlo and move much better than this as well. Britney has done a lot in her career and if she no longer wants this, it’s okay to leave on a good note.


  30. Agatha March 30, 2011

    Comparing Britney now to Britney 7 years ago is pretty stupid and pointless. Move on. Live in the now and experience things for what they are not what they were or what you think they should be. If you WANNA compare anything then compare her performance to everything else that’s out there right now, this is WAY better song/album and performance wise. What’s pretty annoying is how everyone has to voice their opinion of Britney. What’s also funny is how everyone has to voice their opinion of Britney 🙂 Get it? She rules pop. Now sit back down haha.

  31. bey’knight March 30, 2011

    ur comment makes no sense whatsoever..u should read it again yourself…not shading, being serious

  32. bey’knight March 30, 2011


    a bad performance is a bad performance whether it’s compared or not

    how does she rule pop?

    she gets no1 first week and then plummets

    she probably won’t get anymore top 10 singles from this album, i dont have to be hater to predict that, history never lies

  33. dakkylove March 30, 2011

    what did i just watch??? geez whats this

  34. Agatha March 30, 2011


    Wrong, bad opinion has to be relative to something. But don’t get too excited because in the end it’s still only personal opinion and mental fact. Your argument doesn’t have any more basis as the people saying the opposite.

    She rules pop because she makes any move and everyone pays attention (including you). She is on number #1 first day (right now) and don’t pretend to be a clairvoyant and tell the future.

    You know, when people grow up they learn to focus and give their attention to things they like instead of what they hate, makes life much more beautiful. There may be a comment field on almost every website but it doesn’t mean everyone wants to hear you spread your negativity. Try to use your energy for something more productive.

  35. Judge & Jury March 30, 2011

    Now you see why Enrique quit last minute. Who wants to be the opening for this train wreck!!

  36. Judge & Jury March 30, 2011

    You know peeps at Rollingstone were smoking weed to give this s*** cd a 4/5 stars. WTF?? Every track sounds the same. Same s***, different track. The real headliner should be AUTO-TUNE!!! Secondary headliner is lip sync and lip dance in unison. Truth!!!!

  37. Kee March 30, 2011

    I think she did rather well. Much better than what she did on GMA. Of course she’s not as good as a dancer as she once was…she’s no longer a spring chicken. I LOVE BRIT and always will. I do wish she would be a little bit more into her dancing but I do understand that she may never be as good as she use to be and that’s okay with me. #teambritney

  38. Lenell March 30, 2011

    Even though britney is a f****** zombie on stage we gotta atleast acknowledge that her performances are better than rihanna.

  39. NICK March 30, 2011

    I LOVED IT, loveher…..

  40. Christian March 30, 2011

    With each performance, I see Britney is getting her confidence back little by little. But I enjoyed the performances from last night. We rooting for you Britney 🙂

  41. tws0305 March 30, 2011

    pressed haters! the jimmy kimmel performances were MUCH better than the GMA ones, and a clear step in the right direction. you could tell she was having fun cuz she was smiling and a lot more animated. also, the choreography was more on point.

  44. BAA March 30, 2011

    @Agatha Girl are u on drugs, just like the coke head fav of yours! Girl aint nobody checking for lip sync spears but her fans. The reason why people are always paying attention to her ass, is cause she is a walking zombie h***** trainwreck LMAO, who wouldnt pay attention to that. Its over for her scare crow looking ass, Gaga took her spot. Gaga just came out and made more money and The Fame sold more than that circus s***. @Judge and Jury LMFAO ROFL This b**** might well pack her s*** up, cause its over for her. Rihgoat cant sing or dance and she put more effort in her performance than this s***. This b**** been in the game since 98 and aint learned s***. She is on the same level with Kesha and Rihanna. Whores that make pop dance songs with autotune but dont have a inch of talent. Hell i bet kesha can out sing and perform her ass.

  45. Rebecca Black Stan March 30, 2011

    B**** please, did ya’ll see GaGa at the Grammy’s? That b**** can’t dance either. Christina can’t even remember the words to the national anthem of ya’ll s*** country. Katy Perry and Rihanna can’t sing live. Ke$ha don’t sing anyway, she’s all about talking with that album and EP she’s released. So b****** before you start getting all stantastic on your faves, just remember – they aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. ALL pop stars are with flaws, mainly with their actual talent. So cut the s***. Oh and @Baa: lmao, you white trash ghetto stompin’ h** – Ke$ha can sing. Why don’t you see on some of the youtube clips where she’s actually not singing stuff from her LP or EP. Research your facts h**!

  46. Justin March 30, 2011

    Stop criticizing her performances and just enjoy them. Not many artists can go back to what they do after going through what she did, ie Houston, who gouged his eye out and disappeared from the music scene. Getting back on track has been difficult for Britney and that is one of the reason’s why I love her. After what she went through, she has been able to comeback. But get a freakin grip guys, she isn’t the same person she used to be. So until you can get onstage and give a better show and sell more records than her, shut up and just enjoy it.

  47. davis March 30, 2011

    she`s back… you guys should see her dance on break she killed.. can`t wait to see it in NUMBERS… tjie cd will sell like watter or better like Britney

  48. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    LOL, All i can do is laugh at these DREADFUL perfomances.

    *Patiently waits 4 the New Improved Britney known as Aubrey to take brit spot*

  49. Alex March 30, 2011

    No matter what, Britney’s music is 10 times better than Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna and Mariah.
    So what?

  50. KYLE March 30, 2011

  52. Really March 30, 2011

    You must be 10 years old
    Nothing great about autotune
    Britney is what they call “STUDIO CHICK”

  53. Really March 30, 2011

  57. Realtalk 101 March 30, 2011

    The only reason someone would think this is ok is because the bar in pop music has been drmatically lowered by artist like GaGa and RiRi. Beyonce and Chris Brown’s artistry should be the bar for any artist trying to have a music career today. This Britney is not that far from GaGa and RiRi. Their all in the same ball park which is what’s so sad about pop music today.

  58. really_irv March 30, 2011

    @Kay ummmm Aubrey O’Day end of story

  59. Be BETTER not “Bitter!” March 30, 2011

    I’m have a been a Britney fan since Day 1 but these performances leave much to be desired. However, on a positive not the Album is Still Great so she didn’t disappoint across the board!

    I’ve never been to a Britney concert because even at the height of her Career I felt it was too much money for tickets to see her just dance and lip synch and now that the dancing is delporable it’s safe to say I’ll never go to a Britney concert but I’ll bump those CD’s in my car. HAHA

  60. Nichole March 30, 2011


  61. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    @Really Preach! The britney stans should start Crying and Shaking in FEAR!! Lol people have opened up their eyes and are just over Brit now!

  62. “Breezy The Great” March 30, 2011

    As a Britney lover, I must say these performances were painful to watch. And as fan, I feel we should tell her the truth about her performances instead of excepting every single thing she throws at us. I remember this documentary Britney did. While her dancers were getting drinks of water taking a break before getting back up, Brit was in the mirror practicing her moves like her life depended on it. What happened to that Brit? The one that worked her ass and actually behaved as if she truly loves what she does? These performances seem like she has 100 other things she rather do. If she doesnt want to do this anymore, I say she should bow out gracefully, and leave us with the wonderful memories and performances shes given in the past. I dont want her to tarnish her iconic legacy with half-assed music and lackluster performances. She shouls regroup, rest, and spend some time with her children. And if she feels the grove, she can come back and give her fans what they deserve. Because this right here broke my heart..

  63. marqmeone March 30, 2011

    She’s being forced to perform…She does not want this life…And she’s tried to speak out about it but for some reason won’t fully come out….She has no control over her life she isn’t even allowed to spend her own money…She’s being controlled like a puppet and its sad…The day she signed her first contract she signed her life away!

  64. Ariana March 30, 2011

    If she can’t dance as she used to she should try at least to sing live. Her voice never wowed anyone but she has a decent tone. What about trying acoustic versions of her songs? Miguel covered HIAM and he did amazing! He completely rearranged the music and sounded better than the original.

  65. sarah March 30, 2011

    ummmm…am i the only one who noticed there was no mic on until the world ends lol beitney a g for dat

  66. d March 30, 2011

    @kay I’m gonna start by saying not only did you come off to me as a idiot. You say what other female artists can. Do a routine like that as if she’s the only one dancing sOOO awesome…ciara will slay her!..yea I know your gonna say ciara is flopping now but the argument is not on album sales but its on the fact you say. Find another artist that can do a routine or dance like her….I loveee britney and I have every single album!…I’m just being REAL & any other REAL britney fan can say britney has gotten sloppy or fallen off as far as performances I remember atleat she use to sing live every once in a while….(everytime on letterman was awesome)….but she doesn’t even do that anymore..ill always support her via media as far as; albums, magazines but I wouldn’t pay to see her live

  67. Y’all are too fake March 30, 2011

    ^^^Gaga has already been the most downloaded artist in History. So she did achieve something Britney did not. Get it Right

  68. Okay March 30, 2011


  69. Robier March 30, 2011

    Well that was a lil better but I still am thankful I was alive when she was really bringing it. Not on youtube but really saw it live and on tv

  70. Nichole March 30, 2011

    @ Breezy The Great. I agree 100%. I was hoping that Brit would bring it better than the Circus era, but she is actually doing A LOT WORSE.

    I can no longer spend my money on someone with zero motivation, drive, just throw anything ar their fans and are not into anymore. As much as I really don’t want Brit to retire, she may have to.

    I’m glad that I will not be purchasing FF, because I can no longer give my money to someone who isn’t giving me anything in return. If she doesn’t improve in the future (if that shall come for her,) I will just continue to download her music without having to purchase it.

  71. kyl March 30, 2011

    the performance looks like people dancing at a club already drunk

  72. Jason Santoro March 30, 2011

    It’s sad but she needs to leave it alone. She needs to be in a hospital getting help. Sadly Britney, Lady Caca and Steve Jobs can s*** on a stick sell it to you and millions of people will buy it. Eat it and say it’s the best corn dog they have ever had.

  73. L March 30, 2011

    I dont get how she got that bad. She was dancing pretty well on If you seek amy’s video. Means she can do it!

  74. Dave March 30, 2011


  75. sheka March 30, 2011

    whoever thought that s*** she was doin is good is on drugs too! beyonce is way better than her and i don’t like beyonce! y’all need to quit she was lookin spaced out! i think she still got problems!

  76. the truth March 30, 2011

    i am a britney fan…i have loved her since hit me baby onbe more time……..but i have not seen her sing live for years ………..if she actually sang live the performance wud be better…….im not a fan of this song……and im starting to loose faith in her as an artist…..even cheryl cole has sung live…rihanna sings live… does most artist …..its a really a shame…..and thats why i will pay her back by downloading her album illegally lol

  77. Hazza March 30, 2011

    She actualy has NOTHING to prove to you people, she does what she does and people buy it. she clearly has the passion otherwise why would she bover? she has enough money to retire but still she does it as she loves it, f*** the haters how many artists are around after 10 years and 5 number one albums not to mention her 6th one coming up

  78. Agatha March 30, 2011

    Yawn at the haters, haha. Britney’s never going to go away she will be kicking ass in your face for years to come, you mad!

  79. Jordan March 31, 2011

    She is almost thirty and a mother. Come on damn lol

    Ya’ll been givin her so much hate/flack since she’s been out this era its sickening. My advice to TGJ is if you dislike something, DONT POST IT. Because posting something and BASHING it is a conflict of interest. Its obvious who pays you for ads and promo on this site and who does not. (IE all the love for Keri Hilson all of a sudden lol)

    Anyway. yeah lol

  80. mik August 19, 2011

    by the way she is wearing a broadway mic, they are small and skin coloured and fit closely to the jaw bone.!
