Britney Spears performs her first live, full-length television concert from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This no-holds-barred performance breaks new boundaries in the superstar singer's skyrocketing career, and features all-new songs from her new album Britney as well as many of her greatest hits.Written by
Except For The Lip-Synching, She's A Fine Performer
Only because a friend loaned me this and I had never seen Spears sing (hey, I am a fairly old geezer, long past being in the Britney generation), I decided to take a look. It surprised me; it wasn't bad. It actually was very entertaining and some of the skits she did were pretty funny. I have to admit; I was impressed....at least to a point.
This is a feast for the eyes, not just male eyes on Britney, but the wild special effects, lights, colors, explosions, dancers....it's quite the Las Vegas show. I expected "bubble gum" type songs, and some were, but not most. What I saw that I've never seen before on DVD in a live concert is someone lip-syncing! That doesn't say a whole lot for her singing ability if she has to resort to that. However, to be fair, she is dancing so much that it would extremely difficult to do both at once. Nonetheless, it takes away from the credibility of the whole thing. On the plus, at least her songs sounded the way she wanted them to. If done live, they might have been....well, not so good.
Since this concert was done two months after 9/11, there is a nice dedication to our troops and a simulcast to four military bases. I'm sure the guys enjoyed looking at her. Anyway, this whole thing was a lot better than I anticipated. I'm not too impressed with her personal life but she puts on an entertaining show, even with the lip-syncing.
