Can A Big VMA Performance Bring Back Britney?

We were less than pleased to see that Britney was hanging out with Criss Angel the other day well into the wee hours of the morning. However, the Mindfreak is claiming that he and Brit are not together and that he's working with her on her rumored performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. We're not even sure we believe that Britney will make an appearance, but she's definitely wowed us at the VMAs plenty of times in the past. What do you think - can a big VMA performance bring back Britney?

The best award show??? Seriously Lola, this is not 1998, the VMA's have not been good for the last couple years and MTV knows it. The ratings have been decline for the station as a whole and MTV needs a big night to secure advertising dollars. Rumors of a Britney performance builds buzz. Buzz that MTV needs, why do you think they keep moving cities (miami, LA, NY, now Vegas)? Can anyone name a show (besides the Hills) that gives MTV the PR it used to get? Real World sucks, Sweet 16 is funny but not in a good way, and TRL is now pretaped to save money. Even if Britney does not come back on the show, MTV can thank her for the press.

The only thing that will bring Britney back is for her to take some time away from California with her boys and get her life together, for her family, meaning only the boys.

NEVER will she "comeback". No one will ever forget the mess she is. No matter how much she dances around on stage and lip sings!!!

Call me an optimist, but I think a good performance may help her revive her career. I think a lot of people are still rooting for her.

i think the only thing that would bring Britney back is she started taking care of her life. It can be an awesome performance, but if she continues her destructive behavior, it's not gonna matter a bit.

One performance cannot bring somebody back...espically somebody who has squandered their reputation to the extent that Britney has. However, if she really pulls a rabit out of her hat with an amazing performance, I think it does have the potential to bring her back a little bit of credibility. She could at least start to pave the road for a possible comeback...however, I don't think she will ever be all the way back to where she once was. Too much has happened and I think the media, as well as us as a human whole, will sadly not let anybody forget about her public mistakes. Very sad.

Well put Melissabritt! I totally agree! Who cares about a comeback for this girl? Her children should be at the top of her priority list now -- not staging a freakin' comeback. She could use some serious parenting classes from MUCH classier celebrities who seem to be getting it right (Ripa, Shields, Garner, Paltrow, etc.).

This performance could be the starting point of her comeback, if she chose to do that. But I have a feeling she has alot more f-ing up to do before she changes her ways. Im not counting on this performance to be anything spectacular. Actually, i can just picture it now. Halfway through the show, she'll start throwing a fit and storm off stage. Shes a mess

I don't care for brit's music, but I would be glad to see her make a come-back and succeed. I'd like to see her happy and adjusting to the changes in her life.

The way Brit's been behaving has just put her on a permanent record as 'Loonie' in my book. She may put one heck of a show/album/single or whatever, but until she really cleans up, she's still crap.

I doubt that Britney will be peforming at the VMA's. She has been off the music scene for years, she would look out of place peforming. What would she sing?! The VMA's is all about the biggest music stars of the year. Britney is not one of them. She should be concentrating on sorting out this custody battle with Kevin. I don't feel sorry for her. Justin and Christina were also child stars, on the mickey mouse club, and they haven't become messed up. Britney has chosen to live her every day live in front of the paparazzi, she is obviously insecure and needs the attention. These days she is a tabloid star and nothing else. She should leave La La Land for a while and go home to Kentwood.

no, i doubt it'll change anything. i'm sure she'll come out on stage chewing gum, wearing god knows what and obviously lip syncing.

I really hope no one could be *won over* by her performance when what matters is her getting her head sorted out and being a responsible parent. IMO that is the ONLY thing that could win people over. Then again i think she may have past the point of no return.

Nope. She's got a long, long way to go before that happens.

1 performance won't bring back her toned thighs... i'm sure we'll all be given a "treat" of seeing her nasty ass oatmeal-fugly thighs

I think it would have to be an incredible performance to erase all the public nuttiness. I'm not sure she's up to the challenge.
