Because it was the greatest popstar ever at the height of her powers.

Fun Fact: the fan flip & catch was done flawlessly after an series of awful rehearsal attempts, so when the backup dancers were clapping that was genuine and not rehearsed..:jonny6:

I love how everything flows so naturally. Cute views for a 1990 live performance.

A lip sync performance with not a single musical note being produced by the performer? Drag Race lip syncs can top this lol

while I appreciate the look / choreography of this performance, I wouldn't necessarily call it the greatest live performance due to it being, you know, lip-synced.

same goes to all Britney performances :coffee2:

It was topped 11 years later by Britney’s snake performance.

Not people thinking VMAs are the place for musicianship.

About the lip sync comments...I think the goal to this was to pay tribute to the ball culture and etc?
The song is literally about Vouging after all

Exactly.. you don’t see an mic or  M giving the impression she’s singing at all, Some ATRL members really need to do their research before typing

It wasn’t suppose to be. It was her response to the media saying she never sings live....so she didn’t.

Literally. It's aesthetically perfect and she's serving attitude, but in terms of actual performance abilities (live singing, dancing, theatrics, production) it has been topped several times. :rip:

It's performance art. It's about the visual interpretation of the song and creating a moment, she didn't need to pretend she was singing live because that's not the point.

That’s not clocking anybody? We understand the point of it, we’re just not as impressed as other people seem to be

Who cares if she’s lipsyncing. :toofunny2: 

She could’ve kept her mouth shut with the track playing for all I care.

 

Having said that, I never cared much for this performance.
