Britney Spears made her grand return to the 2016 MTV VMAs after nine years away from the stage, and it was worth the wait.

Of course, fans would've loved to see Brit Brit throughout the past nine years, but given her performance tonight we're sure fans walked away completely satisfied. She began her set with "Make Me," walking out in a sheer jumpsuit with yellow sequins and bright yellow boots. Not too long after did G-Eazy join her out on stage where they really heated things up. They eventually transitioned into "Me, Myself & I," grinding and dancing all up on each other much to the delight of the audience and viewers watching.

 This past week Britney released her latest album, Glory, and critics had nothing but wonderful things to say about it. Calling it the "comeback" album fans have been waiting for, Britney proved that she really is back and better than ever. Although many have been lucky enough to catch her highly successful Las Vegas show, tonight fans who haven't made the trek to her residency definitely received an incredible slice of it.

Before the iconic awards show, Britney revealed she was excited but nervous for what was to come. "I think there's something in the air with the VMAs," she told Cubby and Carolina in The Morning radio show Friday. "It's like electric. I can't really explain it."

The 34-year-old continued, "Every time I've performed there it's always been one of those really big, nerve-racking experiences and the people that come, those celebrities, are so much fun and different...I still get very nervous."

If she was nervous at all, it certainly didn't show!
