Britney Spears, who is currently on the second leg of her North American tour The Circus starring Britney Spears, busted out a surprise performance in Greensboro, NC last night. In addition to her normal setlist, Britney interjected a LIVE performance of the Alanis Morissette hit You Oughta Know:
It’s unclear if this new number is going to be repeated at future concert stops or if it was a one-time-only special performance. I understand they had problems with the rigging equipment and Britney was not able to make her usual entrance to the stage by descending from the rafters, nor was she able to fly on her huge umbrella to perform Everytime. Perhaps this cover was a special gift to the audience for the rigging problems. After the jump, check out video of Britney performing You Oughta Know …
I added a few videos so that you could see/hear Britney’s performance from different angles/perspectives. She sounds amazing and what a great song. Do you suppose she decided to do this song as a shout-out to THIS person? I really hope this was not a one time occurrence, I would love for our dear Britney to perform new/different cover songs at upcoming shows. It occurs to me that Britney may record this song for inclusion on her upcoming singles collection CD. She recorded Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative for her last greatest hits album, covering Alanis on her new collection makes total sense. What songs do you think Britney should cover in concert?
