Britney Spears celebrated her final Vegas show on New Year’s Eve

Britney Spears wrapped up her Las Vegas residency on New Year’s Eve after a successful four-year run. Brit, who turned 36 in December, admitted that her final Piece of Me show at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino was a “bittersweet” experience, but said she was “looking forward to an amazing 2018.”

Prior to the show, Brit and her beau, 23-year-old fitness model Sam Asghari, got into the Snapchat filters to film a short video. Donning mouse ears and speaking in squeaky voices, Britney reiterates her excitement for her last shows and, after Sam tells her she’s “beautiful”, replies, “Thank you, and I love you,” and kisses her sweetie on the cheek. I was really hoping 2018 would make the end of these too-cutesy Snapchat videos with these filters. Let’s make a resolution to make those go away. (Yes, I’m guilty of playing with them too, but I’d be more than happy to lead this charge. Who’s with me?)

Prior to taking the stage for the final show on Sunday night, Brit tweeted, “I just want to say thank you to the #PieceOfMe cast and crew, the city of Las Vegas, and all of the fans who came out to sing, dance and party!! What an incredible four years!! Love you all!!”

Since all of Brit’s fans couldn’t be in attendance for her Sin City finale, the singer shared two performances during Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. Before the ball dropped, she performed “Work Bitch” and later, rocked a red bodysuit and did a little Pink-esque arial work while performing “Toxic”. Yes, I said “performing” not “singing,” but hey, it’s Vegas, and it’s all about the show. I’ll admit I found both performances to be pretty good.

Sam, ever the proud BF, shared a quick clip of the show on Instagram, gushing:

I’m kind of curious as to what 2018 holds for Britney. There’s been talk of her moving to another venue in Vegas and, of course, the marriage rumors are floating around. We’ll just have to stay tuned. Hope you all have a great 2018!

    Britney has always been a brilliant performer so Vegas suits her well.

    I grew up with her songs so glad to see that she is doing well after her ordeals.

    • SNAP says:

      I hope she gets a well deserved rest. I watched her new year Toxic “performance” and she looked twitchy and tired…lol…the lip synch was obvious as usual and a far cry from her younger year shows full of energy and pzas. Go enjoy life, you’ve been milked long enough Brit!

      • MM says:

        I agree with you…Her dad should stop pimping her in 2018.

      • leskat says:

        Pzas? Am I out of touch about acronyms again?

      • jwoolman says:

        I don’t think her dad has been pimping her out. One reason he and her mom divorced was that he disagreed with the way Britney was scheduled so much as an entertainer while still a teen. But realistically, Brit was self-driven.

        When her dad stepped in later, when she was in such sad shape and lost custody of her kids, he encouraged her to train and then, when able, to work because that makes her happy. It gives her a purpose. It’s hard to go for balance once you’ve signed a contract and she’s older now, but the idea of the long-term Vegas residency was to help her keep busy but not have to always be on tour.

        She doesn’t seem willing to stop working, is my guess. It’s not about money. Her dad works for relative peanuts and she has plenty of money since he stopped the huge leaks. She has serious mental illness issues that seemed to begin surfacing in her late teens or early twenties, and not everything is fixed well by the right prescription. The medication can have side effects also that are difficult to deal with.

        Britney was really lucky to have her dad and her ex-husband on her side. They both did all the right things when she needed so much help. They both really saved her relationship with her children, and shielded the boys while giving her as much supervised time with them as possible even when the judge ordered no visitation.

    • Char says:

      After all Britney went through, I’m happy to see her happy and well!
      Hoping for a 2018 with new hits, we could use it one more time…

  2. Susie says:

    I missed it. The husband and I already talked about it. And I love that when she was eighteen I was eighteen but now I’m 38 and she just turned 36…lol!

    • SNAP says:

      Right?! I was wondering how that works…

    • I don't know her says:

      Girl please.
      She’s a year older than me (1981 & 1982 respectively)
      Always has always will be.
      I will turn 36 in February.

      If you want to look for a superstar lying about their age look at Beyoncé.

      • AmunetMaat says:

        I hate to say it but Beyonce has always been about 2 years older than me. I remember because DC dropped No, No, No the original version when I was in 9th grade and I thought it was cool that they were only 15/16, so a couple of years older than me. Beyonce is still a couple of years older than me. They have her age from the Star Search she did as Girl’s Tyme back from the 80s. So when did she lie?

    • Bridget says:

      Really? When I was 17 she was 17, and I just turned 36. Her birthday has always been 1981.

  3. Millennial says:

    I’ve always wanted to see her in Vegas, so I hope she returns someday!

    • kellybean says:

      Me too. I have never been to Las Vegas and I’m not interested in gambling. I just wanted to go to see Britney and go shopping. Oh well. You snooze, you lose.

  4. Hh says:

    She looks great physically, but I hope 2018 brings an updated look. It feels like her hair and makeup have been the same for over a decade.

    • smcollins says:

      The last TWO decades. She’s clinging to that look a little too hard and it’s time to let it go. But otherwise she does indeed look fantastic.

  5. kellybean says:

    Her arms look amazing (ripped!) in that last photo. Must be the new boyfriend/trainer. Good on her.

  6. Karen says:

    On NYE I did not even recognize her-fillers, plastic surgery. Sh is only 36.

  7. PlaidSheets says:

    I was pleased to see her perform on NYE. My 10-year-old was a full of questions of why a lady the same age as her mom was moving like that. The little bugger.

    Whatever. I explained to her that I was pleased that after all she’s been through, I was glad to see that she was doing well. I still root for Britney.

  8. Tess says:

    Oh Brit. She’s ALWAYS exhausted me, like damn girl you’re only a bit older than me where do you get your energy to do all these tours and shows from teen hood? I say she take time off, concentrate on her family and travel, get inspired, then come back with a bomb album and another venue.

  9. K8 says:

    I just want her to wash the black from under her eyes. No one ever needs that much eyeliner, and it’s not like the best of the best makeup artists wouldn’t fight to fix her

  10. leskat says:

    I honestly think she looks run ragged. Please buy this girl an island where she can sit on the beach with her boyfriend and kids and she can be rested and relaxed and enjoy her life.

  11. lovelym says:

    I’ve seen her Vegas show 2 years ago and she was amazing! She definitely puts on a good show 🙂

  12. Cupcake says:

    I will always have a soft spot for Brit! I hope she just keeps enjoying the sex with that guy and does not actually marry him!

  13. NorthernLala says:

    Ok, I’m always rooting for her BUT her dance moves the last few years drive me crazy. The arm movements alone! Its all lip-syncing and robotic dance moves and that seems to be ok for everyone. It makes me kinda sad that the bar is set so low for her. I guess everyone wants her to be ok, which is a good thing. Still it’s hard to watch her.
    I hope she moves on and evolves

    • Juju says:

      The hand dancing drives me crazy. She’s super fit and I’ve seen video of her doing gymnastics at a gym so it’s not like she’s not coordinated. But you can tell, even with choreography that is mostly arm movements she still isn’t engaging her torso when needed. She only moves her arms (unless she is walking). It looks odd to me.

  14. Kim says:

    I saw Britney in Vegas 4 nights before her NYE finale. I agree with those who say please give the woman a rest. I wouldn’t have even minded the continual lip syncing, but she danced as though she was half-assing her way through a rehearsal. She seemed bored and so OVER it!! We planned our entire trip around her show, so it was really disappointing. The woman makes nearly half a million per show, so the lack of effort was disappointing and honestly I felt a bit ripped off.

  15. Ozogirl says:

    I don’t understand why people would pay money to watch someone lip sync and do some hand gestures…

  16. Nibbi says:

    she’s looking super-fit, positively Madonna-esque in that last pic

  17. Marta says:

    Hard to believe she’s only 36, she looks 10 yrs older! Most of the time she looks drunk or high, but maybe that’s the only way she can function anymore.

  18. Dame-ly says:

    Looked very robotic, just following the rehearsed steps , no spontaneity or passion for it. She deserves a rest, I hope not having the discipline of a nightly show isn’t too much of a shock for her psyche and she can truely relax and enjoy her life.
