It's confirmed, Britney Spears will be on stage to kick off the VMAs this Sunday in LA! Don't get your hopes too high — she won't be performing — but she will open the show. According to a statement from Brit, "MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated." After seeing her hilarious promos with Russell Brand, I can't wait to see what they come up with for Britney even if she won't be showing off her moves or any new music. What do you think — are you excited that Britney Spears will open the VMAs?
