Britney's back! but she's still miming!!

based upon Daily Mail Article

The stakes were higher than ever for Britney Spears as she took to the stage in New Orleans last night for the launch of her eagerly anticipated U.S. tour.

For what insiders described as her last chance to prove she can still compete in the pop world alongside the likes of Madonna and Kylie Minogue, the singer pulled out all the stops.

Well, almost. She didn't sing live during the high-octane act, but instead dazzled the crowd with a dozen costume changes - one more revealing than the next - elaborate dance routines and even the odd smoke and mirrors magic trick.

The 27-year-old's Louisiana performance, the first of her 44-date Circus tour, was widely deemed a success by fans, but critics were less enthusiastic, citing her lip-syncing as a notable disappointment.

In between sets, there was little interaction with the crowd, but Britney did say 'thank you New Orleans, you have a good night' after her encore. Nearly all the 19,000 tickets for the 90 minute show last night were sold out, which marked Britney's first return to the stage since her Onyx Hotel tour in 2004.

The failure to sell all the tickets could be to do with the fact that some tickets were going for as much as $750, a hefty price to pay during an economic crisis.

There's a great video of a Britney concert somewhere with the recording of her real voice ( not the recorded one she mimes to )

What the fark is the POINT of performing live if you...don't. Call yourself a mime artist then...Part of seeing people you like live is listening to live versions of the songs and seeing the odd...mistake! My dearly beloved Ace Frehley couldn't sing his way out of a paper bag, bless him,especially live and he was always falling on his arse on stage (drunk, no doubt) ....it's all good.

Ari's right. What the hell is the point in paying to see someone mime when you wanted them to sing / dance play instruments.

Total rip-off.
