All in all, it wasn't the best choreography. The stand in did the routine 10 times better than Britney did it. Still...regardless if she was better or worse, she was just the stand-in. Britney became famous for her killer dance routines. She should have been able to turn that routine into something hot.

They werent that different, except the other girl was far more sharp than brit brit. The costume was the worst thing though. Britney could have been wearing trackpants and a hoodie and she would have looked better

it was really hard to see, but from what i could tell, the choreography was originally really BORING. the stand in was a bit more fluid, and britney seemed to have missed many of her marks and seemed to have been off by a few seconds. not to mention her drunken bored out of it state. but we already knew that.

The girl was more precise, but the essence of the entire thing was still the same. Wasn't that big of difference to me. I think that a lot of people were tainted by a predisposition. (And I'm not a Britney fan by any means)

I saw some footage on youtube showing her heel not in the right position & she stumbles because of that .

Zzzzzzzz. The stand-in was just as boring as Britney. Maybe she hit her moves a little harder, and she wasn't wearing that hideous outfit, but honestly, the two performances weren't much different than one another. The reason Britney's performance was poor, in my mind anyway, is because she looked like she didn't give a shit. Her dancing was sloppy, and she looked like she wanted to cry the whole time. Either way, that choreography was a dismal failure.

At first I thought the other girl was way better but then it kinda evened out. So I said no. If Brit had just put that extra effort it would've been good.

I think Britney wasn't too far off... She didn't have THAT much time to rehearse either... sigh. she's having so much shit now, I'm actually feeling for her.

The girl was BETTER because she was sharper, she did spins that Spears couldn't dream about...even in her heyday, she did the lift (and Baby & Johnny told us how important THE LIFT is!!!), she was just all around sharper...which in my book means BETTER!!!

Just because this girl wasn't drunk doesn't mean she is better...I didn't see that much difference. Brit did miss the lift!

Her performance was so lack-luster that giving 100% to what she did do would have been better than being a strung out, clueless performer....and I use the word performer very loosely. If you aren't willing and able to give 110% get out of the biz.

Well this proves Britney did generally know the chereography of the performance, even if she didn't have the energy required and was stumbling several times.

Obviously Britney knew the choreography, but her moves were tense and stiff, not convincing. It was a disappointment!

The girl deserves a career. Britney screwed it off.

That girl had way more energy when she did the performance... Britney's seemed rather slowww as if she was just practising.

it seems like the problem was with the choreography...there was nothing mind blowing about it...which was disappointing since her last appearances on the MTV awards were headlining performances...sorry let me rephrase that were POSITIVE headline performances... this just lacked so much effort

It looks like the choreography wasn't that great to start with. But maybe the choreographers knew not to expect a whole lot from Brit anyway.

I think that the other chicks movements were so much tighter. but yeah i whole heartedly agree that the performance itself just wasnt much. they shouldve done so much more with it seeing as though she had a 3 year hiatus or however long it was.

She was better than Britney, but not by much. It's not a good routine.
