Britney Spears Surprised With Birthday Cake At KIIS-FM Jingle Ball (VIDEO)
Britney Spears was surprised with a birthday cake at the 2016 KIIS-FM Jingle Ball on Friday. Watch below!
This year’s annual concert, once again held at the Staples Center, happened to fall on the same day Spears turned 35. And while she could’ve opted to take the night off, she instead chose to perform for thousands of fans as part of a star-studded holiday show. But host Ryan Seacrest made sure to recognize Spears’ milestone.
With help from the concert’s crew, he surprised Spears with a birthday cake, and led the audience in “Happy Birthday.” As the crowd sang along with Seacrest and her backup dancers, the singer seemed genuinely surprised. KIIS-FM posted video of the special moment on social media, which Spears herself then shared with her millions of followers early Saturday morning.
“Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes! Had an amazing day. Love you all,” she tweeted. The pop star also posted the footage and wrote the same message on Instagram. Birthday aside, the concert was also a biggie for Spears because she and Tinanshe together performed the “Slumber Party” remix live for the first time.
The performance came after Gossip Cop corrected false reports wrongly claiming Spears would sing “Slumber Party” on “The Voice” and at the American Music Awards. Clearly, she had a different event in mind for the debut performance. Check out the birthday highlight below!
