Britney Spears: whether she's going crazy or gearing up for a comeback, she's the pop princess the public is always rooting for — because she's got it. Just watch any Britney Spears live performance videos and you'll understand: there's just something about her that makes you want to watch. The best Britney Spears performances usually involve a sexy outfit, a crew of insanely talented backup dancers, and some sort of gimmick (a live snake, perhaps?). From iconic awards show performances to staged concert videos, here are the best Britney Spears performances of all time.

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.

This behind-the-scenes look at Britney is the best of both worlds: you get an inside look at her writing process at the piano, then she wows with a sexy performance of "Toxic," clad entirely in latex. YASSS.

The prince and princess of pop together on one stage! Britney Spears and Michael Jackson singing "The Way You Make Me Feel" together is nothing short of iconic.
