The show must go on!
While Britney Spears was performing her hit single "Circus" during her Las Vegas show on Saturday, Dec. 28, the singer suffered what could have been an epic wardrobe malfunction when the back of her tight, sequined corset popped open unexpectedly.
Luckily, one of her stealthy backup dancers saved the day by zipping her costume back up while BritBrit, like a consummate professional, didn't miss a beat of her choreography, although there's no doubt the snafu caused a moment of sheer panic for the pop star, who nearly flashed the jam-packed audience.
"That's the attitude you have to have," she told The Insider backstage after the 2014 People's Choice Awards on Wednesday, Jan. 8, admitting that the show must go on. "The dancers were helping me with the back part of my dress. It was really kind of crazy."
And despite the fact that Spears has been seen countless times onstage, the pop princess admits she still gets preshow jitters before each and every performance.
"I'm still going to be nervous before the next shows I do," she confessed. "I know I will."
As for her sentiments towards her first People's Choice Award win after taking home the honor for Favorite Pop Artist?
"I feel very blessed and I've just had such a great support system throughout this whole year," the blond beauty gushed. "My family has been wonderful and I've worked really hard so I'm very proud of this and I'm very happy."
Spears made her red carpet debut with her boyfriend of nearly a year David Lucado at the annual event and thanked her "beautiful boys" at home as well as "all of you" as she squealed with excitement while accepting her accolade.
And, when asked if there was anyone she forgot to thank, the 32-year-old mother of two said, "God. I forgot the main man upstairs. But that's OK, he knows."
Congrats on your well-deserved success, Brit!
