Britney Spears Travels Back in Time for Epic Billboard Music Awards 2016 Performance: Watch!

It’s Britney, bitch! Britney Spears killed it at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on Sunday, May 22. The superstar, 34, lit up the stage with an epic medley of some of her greatest hits, as well as a few deep cuts from her 2003 album In the Zone.

Spears — who set the bar high by opening the show — treated the star-studded crowd to almost eight minutes of entertainment starting with an intro that highlighted some of the singer’s most memorable career moments, including her six Billboard Music Award wins and her more than 40 million records sold worldwide, among many others.

The chart-topper then broke out into her 2013 jam “Work Bitch” before transitioning into “Womanizer,” the No. 1 lead single from her 2008 album, Circus.

Next, Spears wowed the audience with a lively performance of Joan Jett’s 1981 classic “I Love Rock ‘N' Roll,” which the pop star indelibly covered on her 2001 LP, Britney, and in her 2002 film, Crossroads.

After writhing with her backup dancers to the sound of her 2003 non-single “Breathe on Me,” she appeased nostalgia-loving hearts everywhere by singing “I’m a Slave 4 U” and perfectly executing the dance breakdown from the track’s iconic video.

Spears, who slayed in a slew of skin-baring ensembles by Mark Zunino, also electrified fans with a sensual rendition of another non-single (but fan favorite among the Britney Army) “Touch of My Hand.” She ended her set with “Toxic,” her Grammy-winning song from In the Zone.

Ahead of her performance, Spears walked the red carpet in a sexy lace Reem Acra ensemble. She will receive the prestigious Millennium Award at tonight’s ceremony, an honor that has previously been given to artists such as Beyoncé and the late Whitney Houston. Spears' ninth studio album is expected to drop this summer, following the release of her upcoming single “Make Me.”
