Brits Go Crazy For Brit

Britney's lip synching was on target today when she greeted Simon Cowell and the folks of the "X-Factor" for her third comeback performance of "Womanizer".

The now famous arm dancing routine reverted back to the drone-like performance from Germany.

I looked at this video without the sound before I played it with her song. She is a pretty girl who cannot dance. The routine looked virtually the same as the disasterous performance at the VMA. There was slightly more energy but no evidence of talent. When I played the video with the song it is clear that she cannot sing. If she were not attractive she would be just another low functioning young woman working a minimum wage job and going through a series of equally low functioning boy friends while failing at raising her children.

Q    

don't call it a comeback! what kind of comeback is that? it doesn't surprise me that she lip synced again cause thats what she always did, so thats nothing new, and for the people that keep commenting about how great she is doing after all she has been through, every bad thing thats happend to her over the years was her own fault, its Britney's fault that she decided that drinking and using drugs was more important than taking care of her own kids...yeah maybe she does have some kind of "mental illness" but her "illness" was most likely brought on by exsessive drinking and drug use cause she really wasn't that crazy when she first came out because she was sober, then all of a sudden she is acting like a lunatic because of subtance abuse problems, I don't know why some people are making it like Britney is a victim of everything bad thats happend to her, she made her bed, now she has to lay in it....and why is it that each music video that Britney comes out with it gets more and more trashy? is she really that desperate for attention? probably cause she isn't exactly known for her "singing talents" atleast Christina has talent, she has a great voice and she actually takes care of her child and isn't a coke head/alcoholic (can't say the same for Britney)

I believe that Britney was always mentally deficient. She showed no ability to act in her own best interest ever since she started making decisions. Look at her first marriage and annulment and her business decisions. These fiascos took place long before she started taking drugs and fell in with the recent crowd of losers (Lutfi, et al).

I don't believe that anyone should cut her slack in terms of her career. She is not performing up to par (where "par" is defined here to mean level at which she used to perform 6-7 years ago), and it's unlikely that she ever will. She doesn't deserve many of the accolades that she is currently receiving.

Given her serious and probably incurable mental problems, I believe that Britney is on the road to a very difficult and unhappy life. To me, there is a big difference between (A) telling it like it is about her less-than-inspiring performances and commenting on her seemingly selfish and narcissistic priorities, and (B) going out of one's way to trash and attack her. The latter is an example of simple cruelty, and it's akin to tormenting handicapped people.

The poor girl just needs to be phased out of the limelight and to be given as much love and support as she can from her family. As I have said before, her situation is tragic.

I am amazed at all the hype over Britney, on the same X Factor show here in Britain was Miley Cyrus, who actully sung and entertaind a hundreds times better. Britney must be really low on money if her father and other handlers and content with pushing her out on stage when she is obviously not ready.

75. I haven't watched the video and I usually don't care enough about her to comment, but guess what?! Just about all performers lip-synch on award shows, talk shows, etc. It's apart of the business. They tend to use their full-on vocals on their albums and at concerts. There are a variety of reasons for this, but it's true. Sorry to disappoint. I guess you just have to understand different aspects of the business to know this.

==========================
Many of the people here who are criticizing Britney for lip-synching already know this. They are just looking for any excuse to dump on her. Lots of these people go out of their ways to come here multiple times a day, and they then compete with one another to see which one can come up with the "best" anti-Britney comments.

This having been said, Britney's performance still left a lot to be desired, especially with regard to her dancing. I believe that she needs to work hard to get her dance moves back. However, she is indeed showing improvement after her meltdown, and she should at least receive some credit for that.

Whether she will continue to improve remains to be seen. I, for one, wish her the best and hope she does.

Having watched this, I thought she looked good, unfortunately it was a terrible mime job, and her dancing wasnt up to much. The most embarassing thing was when Dermot (presenter) asked her what she thought of the acts .... She didnt even know what he was talking about, I think she was under the impression it was "Britney Factor" not "x-Factor"..

Britney is trying to come back to soon. She needs more time off to get her head straight. This performance was awful. She is walking through the routine. She looks horrible and her lyp sinking is exagerrated. This performance is no where near the performances of her past. She looks like she doesn't even care, she probably needs the money!

Common sense    

Ha ha! Too bad she's not smart enough to be embarassed. Anyone over the age of 15 who pays to see her lip-synching and crappy dancing should have their head examined.

dont know    

Surprisingly, I think she looks really good. No one cares that she lip syncs. No one. I watched her MTV special last night, and by looking at her hillbilly family, no wonder she's all messed up. YUK--But of losers living off her. No wonder she's nuts.
