Perez Hilton, who appears in the show as Queen Elizabeth (really), said the show was "much better than we had expected!" but faulted whoever made Britney lipsynch through the entire show. MTV News had a lot of fun but wished there had been more Britney to go around; People blamed the singer for not engaging the audience more and said she seemed relieved when it was all over. And the U.K. Sun newspaper called it "X-rated" from the bondage-inspired costumes to the decidedly underchoreographed sequences with Spears' dancers.
You only have 44 more opportunities to see Spears in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., after which the ailing music industry will probably fold in on itself. Hurry, hurry! Come one and all!
