MTV.com is giving BreatheHeavy readers first look at the Britney Birthday Video Tournament!
It’s up to Britney fans to vote in the FIRST ROUND, where 30 of Britney’s most iconic music videos go head-to-head in a bracket-style battle for the highest honor of being named the Best Britney Video Ever, just in time for Brit’s 30th birthday on December 2nd.
“The first round of voting is open until Tuesday at 11:59 p.m., at which point the 30 videos will be narrowed down to the top 16. You can vote as many times as you wish and campaign as much as you see fit for your favorite videos to move on to the next round of voting.
Since 30 videos is an unusual number to balance a tournament bracket, we have automatically pushed forward two of Britney’s VMA-winning videos — “Piece of Me” and “Till the World Ends” — to the second round, where they will no longer be safe from elimination.“
I’ll weigh in here and there on MTV.com with what I think the winning videos in that round’ll be!
Voting for round two begins at 7 a.m. Wednesday and will last all the way through Thanksgiving weekend, closing Sunday at 11:59 p.m. As of Monday, November 28, MTV will begin with eight videos, then four, then two, until the winner is announced on Brit’s birthday.
Here’s my prediction of the winning videos fans will choose (in purple):
Sometimes vs. My Prerogative
Everytime vs. If U Seek Amy
Lucky vs. Boys
Oops!… I Did It Again vs. Someday I Will Understand
Stronger vs. Gimme More
I Wanna Go vs. Criminal
Baby One More Time vs. Overprotected
Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know vs. Hold It Against Me
(You Drive Me) Crazy vs. From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart
Me Against The Music vs. I Love Rock N Roll
Toxic vs. Radar
Circus vs. I’m Not A Girl
Womanizer vs. 3
I’m A Slave 4 U vs. Do Somethin’
