Two words: live snake. Britney OWNED the stage during this performance of "I'm A Slave for U." Yes, she even outshone that python.

From "Satisfaction" to "Oops... I Did It Again," every moment of this performance was pitch-perfect. Especially that iconic nude, sparkly outfit.

The performance that needs no introduction: Britney, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera performed a sexed-up version of Madonna's '80s hit "Like A Virgin," complete with open-mouthed kissing at the end.

Classic with a twist: Britney performed a jazz rendition of "...Baby One More Time" before launching into "Crazy". That intro tho...!
