Britney Spears attended the Radio Disney Music Awards on Saturday to accept the Icon Award (it airs on Sunday, April 30, at 7 pm). The prestigious accolade was created to recognize artists who have not only cultivated massive success in pop culture, but one who also has a strong following of Radio Disney fans.
Hailee Steinfeld, Kelsea Ballerini and Sofia Carson and (surprise!) Britney’s younger sister Jamie Lynn performed a medley of Brit’s hits, including “Oops,” “Circus” “Baby One More Time” and “Till The World Ends.”
After the tribute, Jamie Lynn spoke a few kind words for her big sis before inviting her to accept the Icon Award on stage. Britney was met with roaring applause as the crowd chanted her name.
“I wanna thank Radio Disney so much for giving me their first-ever Icon Award,” Britney said. “This is such an honor!” She also added her fans are “the freakin best” and thanks her two sons, Sean and Jayden, “they’re the reason my heart beats.”
