Britney Spears has once again shocked the world but this time it’s something that could help her career. Performing last night in Greensboro, NC Spears sang live (yes I did say “sang live”). The singer who has lip synched her way through the entire Circus tour belted out a very impressive version of Alanis Morissette’s You Oughta Know.Spears appeared very confident in the performance and the crowd showed its approval afterwards with thunderous applause. This performance was a surprise to those in attendance and one that I think most Britney fans hope she will continue with.

Posting a text response to the video, one fan wrote: “This song is soooo good and seems so nice in Britney! “Congrats Britney, you should sing more live. Even if it’s not perfect it would be more exciting and emotional for you, and for the fans. “Previously on the tour, Britney has mimed while concentrating on the complicated dance routines involved in the show.” - ContactMusic -

Last night at the Greensboro, NC stop of her Circus tour, Britney Spears covered Alanis Morissette’s 1990s anthem “You Oughta Know,” and from this admittedly low-quality video (and various reports on the Internet), it seems she actually sang live, instead of singing to tape. Again, the quality here isn’t great, but it looks like she rocked it. What better way to silence the critics than to step up to the mic, say to hell with it all, and spew some of that bile. Hot, confident Britney, live vocals, a dash of rebellion…hey Brit, how about breaking off for a few surprise shows at intimate clubs? I’d be down for that.” – Entertainer Weekly -
