Britney: Live In Concert (1 Day To Go!)

TOMORROW IS THE DAY!
I CAN’T TAKE IT TAKE IT TAKE NO MORE!
I CANNOT HOLD IT! I CAN NOT CONTROL IT!
I’M SO EXCITED! I’M IN TOO DEEP!
britney-spears-madonna-vmas-2003-kiss-billboard-650Words can’t express how excited I am to attend tomorrow’s concert! June 15, 2017 at the MOA Arena is definitely a historical event! Life-changing in all aspects! Britney, for the first time ever, will perform in front of thousands of Filipinos who have waited for her for almost 2 decades!

I am thrilled to see her perform live! But before tomorrow comes, I want to share to you guys her most iconic and unforgettable live performances, EVER! I personally compiled them and they are personal picks. They may be your choices or not, but in my opinion, these are the greatest!

5. S&M Rhimix (Live at the BBMAs)

SURPRISE! Britney surprised the audience upon explosively entering the stage during the middle part of Rihanna’s S&M persomance at the Billboard Music Awards. They’ve proved together that their chemistry didn’t just remain in the song, but they also showed it on stage! Fierce Britney, feisty Rihanna, what more can you ask for? This is definitely a super performance!

4. Toxic (Live at NRJ Music Awards)

One of my ULTIMATE FAVORITES! When I think of a live performance, this easily comes to mind. Sexy, sultry and fun at the same time. The choreography is very pleasing, Britney’s energy is on top, the moment is just superb! I can say one her unforgettable performances that showcased her sexy persona!

3. Womanizer (Live at X Factor UK)

HER COMEBACK! This was one of the strings of performances she did in Europe way back 2008 to promote her then album, Circus. All of her performances during this period were amazing, but this one stood out! She was on fire! She nailed it! She proved to everyone that despite her rough circumstances, she’s back on track and she’s ready to slay the basic popstars, and that she is the queen, and that she has arrived. I cried while watching this the first time, honestly.

2. Me Against The Music (Live at the AMAs)

Dancing on point, check! Big production, check! Live singing, check check check! Who says she can’t sing live while performing? Well this performance proved the haters wrong! The remix was just perfect, and the performance was just unbelievably classic Britney! She mixed sweet Britney and Sexy Britney in one stage, less Madonna. This is one of my favorites as well and I guess some artists, too, that’s why they copied this production. Ehem *Beyonce* ehem…

1. I’m A Slave 4 U (Live a the VMAs)

THE ULTIMATE BRITNEY LIVE PERFORMANCE. NO OTHER ARTIST TODAY CAN OUTPERFORM THIS LEGENDARY MOMENT! THE LETTERS ARE ON ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT IS INTENSE! SHE WAS ON FIRE! SHE WAS PIERCING THROUGH EVERYONE IN THE AUDIENCE! SHE WANTED TO KILL THE STAGE! AND SHE DID! SHE DELIVERED! SHE SLAYED! This is truly the standard of live performances these days, and I tell you, NO OTHER ARTIST CAN TOP THIS. They can duplicate, they can imitate, but they can never top this. HANDS DOWN!

Watching all these videos make me more excite in seeing her show tomorrow! Yes she has aged, and she may never be performing with as much energy as these, but the fact that she still keeps on going and making her fans happy makes me happy, and contented. I can never ask for more from Miss Britney Spears. Whatever makes her happy makes me happy. She loves performing, and critics give her flack for it. But she doesn’t care, I don’t care, too. As long as she is happy with what she is doing I will support her. AND MARK MY WORDS, I WILL BE THERE TOMORROW, I WILL SHOUT, JUMP AND CRY WITH HER EVERY PERFORMANCE! Definitely, a dream come true for a regular Britney fan, like me. 🙂

Britney: Live In Concert (2 Days To Go!)

britney-spears-reuters-640x480On June 15, 2017, at the MOA Arena, Britney Spears will, at last, perform in front of the Filipino crowd, for the first time ever! And I’m very much excited I keep on talking about her for the past few days! I still can’t believe it, the announcement was just made months ago and now, I’m just two days away from her concert! Forgive me, but I am just so much thrilled and overwhelmed!

To celebrate her upcoming concert, I have listed some Britney-related stuff below that I personally picked. Ranging from my most favorite Britney Album, videos and collaborations, to the worst ones. These are just my personal choices and doesn’t mean it has to be yours, too. :p

Top 5 least favorite Albums:

  1. Blackout
  2. Britney Jean
  3. Oops!… I Did It Again
  4. Britney
  5. Glory

Top 5 Favorite Albums

  1. In The Zone
  2. Femme Fatale
  3. Circus
  4. …Baby One More Time
  5. Glory

Britney has only had 9 studio albums so far, so her recent album, Glory, is the midpoint of all her albums, for me. Blackout is really a good album, I just don’t get why a lot of people love it. Yes, it is a game-changer but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is the greatest. In The Zone is the best for me since it has one of her best collaborations with Madonna and the Ying Yang Twins. The music is also perfection, for me In The Zone showed Britney’s identity and edge above all the other artists, and the songs are very ahead of its time, very innovative! With the top 5 albums that I chose, I don’t have any song that I can skip to, but the least 5 ones, I always have some songs to skip.

Top 5 least favorite Videos

  1. Make Me
  2. Gimme More
  3. Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know
  4. Sometimes
  5. I Wanna Go

Top 5 favorite Videos

  1. Me Against The Music
  2. Circus
  3. Till The World Ends
  4. I’m A Slave 4 U
  5. Work B*tch

The Britney Army knows Make Me is one of the worst videos, since we were expecting an iconic one from David LaChapelle but we were given an audition video instead. Same with Gimme More, I was expecting “more” from it. Britney Spears is known for her huge dance moves and group choreography, it made me her fan and the top 5 videos I chose perfectly symbolize what a perfect “Britney” video is; lots of dancers, jaw-dropping dance breaks, chilling dance beats, amazing production. It’s not about just moving your hips or banging your head or whatever, these videos show REAL CHOREOGRAPHY that no other artist could! On the other hand, I Wanna Go is a mess, very much overrated, and the other two doesn’t fit her image very very well, very forgettable.

Top 5 Collaborations

  1. Me Against The Music feat. Madonna
  2. S&M Rhimix with Rihanna
  3. Slumber Party feat. Tinashe
  4. Boys (Co-ed Remix) feat. Pharrell Williams
  5. Scream & Shout with will.i.am

Since she only has few collaborations, I listed the top 5 I like the most. I’m not really a huge fan of Scream & Shout but thanks to this song, and will.i.am, it helped Britney maintain her relevance among her target audience. Boys is a classic bop! It isn’t a fan favorite but for me, the longer I listen to it, the more I’m liking it; it’s a grower! Slumber Party and S&M is classic Britney! Girl power at its finest with sexy vocals and dancing, REAL DANCING. However, Me Against The Music is the ultimate collaboration with the queen herself, Madonna! How can you turn down such song, amazing beat, awesome melody, it is definitely a perfect song!

Well, I am not asking you all to agree with me, as mentioned, these are personal choices, but maybe this list may help you change your preferences hehe :p. It is definitely advisable to listen to these amazing music as her concert is nearing to feel more excited and ecstatic! Personally, I haven’t listened to any other artist since I bought her concert ticket. I have this playlist in my phone called “THE ULTIMATE BRITNEY PLAYLIST” including all her songs from her catalog, remixes that I have and unreleased stuff that I have, as well. Nostalgic and overwhelming at the same time, this is really recommended to all the fans seeing her this Thursday! Try it and fill yourself with “Britney-energy” before the concert starts!

Britney: Live In Concert (3 Days To Go!)

britneyAND YES, THE MOMENT WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR IS FINALLY HAPPENING HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES! If I may say it, Britney will finally SNEAK AWAY INTO THE PHILIPPINES (Piece of Me, 2007)!!! It will never be just a lyric in her 2007 hit, but it will be, at last, happening in 3 days!

Since she started in 1998, I’ve been a fan. I don’t know her name but her songs are always catchy and she easily caught the hearts of millions, around the world! She became a household name. She also tasted the best of both worlds, fame and misfortune, but they have this saying that “If Britney made it in 2007, you can make it today”. She made it, surpassed the tests and became braver as ever, still making hits in spite of tight competition in the Pop Industry. In other words, she is still very relevant among her generation.

2007 also saw her hit song “Piece of Me” where she mentioned “Philippines” in one of the lines. And in 3 days, in June 15, 2017 in MOA Arena, it is not just part of the song anymore, because for the first time, Britney Spears is performing in the Philippines! April 5, 2017 marked the availability of her tickets online and in-store. And of course, me and my peers didn’t waste time and made sure we were first in line, first thing in the morning!

SM Tickets open by 10am, nationwide, so we wanted to make sure we were the first buyers and we decided to go to SM Cubao, since there are fewer people there. We planned to separate ways to try to see which was the fastest way, they went IMG_3310to cross from Ali Mall and I decided to go directly inside SM Cubao. Around 9:55, there were a lot of people with me inside, waiting for the mall to open. I was unsuspecting and thought they were just mall goers, but when the guards blew their whistles, they ran! I ran with them, we were pushing each other to get first in the escalator, it was shocking! It was my first time to experience this! And while running, one asked me if I was buying Britney tickets, and that’s when I knew she was still a sensation and people will still die to see her! Arriving in the ticket booth, I saw my friends there, I guess their path was faster than mine. THEY WERE FIRST IN LINE! And guess what, in 10 minutes, the SVIP section was sold out. And after 30 minutes, all sections were sold out! ICONIC!

IMG_8586Totally unforgettable, but it was exciting! I can’t believe that in 3 days, I will see her, singing and dancing in front of thousands of Filipinos! It’s been years, me and my co-Britney army can’t wait! And while her concert is days away,  let me share to you ASAP’s performance of some of her songs yesterday to promote the concert, as well as some throwback performances from the show! Enjoy!
