Britney Spears’ Backup Dancers Stage Their Own Tribute to the Singer
Britney Spears received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, a moment which has inspired the pop star's backup dancers to film their own tribute to the singer.
The 29-year-old's Femme Fatale troupe recently posted a video of themselves in their homage to Brit, set to the sounds of Spears and Madonna's 2004 hit 'Me Against the Music.' According to the description, the dancers shot the "unplanned" footage in three hours and said the project was "a lot of fun."
We can't argue with that. The uber-fit dancers are shown emerging from cars, buses and various places, launching into super tight choreographed sets to honor the 'I Wanna Go' singer. There are individual shots of Brit's crew and more group standout numbers to round out the video, which is dedicated to "the one and only" Britney Spears.
MTV has been criticized for its VMA tribute to the singer, which consisted of an introduction by Lady Gaga (as Jo Calderone) and a video-themed number performed by young dancers. While the kids were cute, it seemed like a let-down following rumors that the likes of Kesha, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj were set to participate in an unforgettable medley.
