Round three is now open for voting in the Britney Spears Tournament: 30 Videos for 30 Years!
When polls closed Sunday night, we had narrowed the brackets down from the Sweet 16 to the Elite Eight, and some of the results were shocking!
Four of the eight matchups in round two of the tournament remained neck-and-neck until the moments the polls closed.
After holding the advantage for most of the second round, “Everytime,” which also happens to be Perez Hilton ’s favorite Britney Spears video, fell out of the tournament, losing to Britney’s diva alter ego in “Lucky.”
Two of Britney’s most dance-heavy videos, “(You Drive Me) Crazy” and “Me Against the Music,” were back and forth with each other for most of the round before Madonna and Britney’s hit lunged forward and sent green-tube-top Britney out of the tournament with less than 1 percent more of the votes.
Round three will see “Stronger” take on “Criminal” in a pairing that many thought would be “Oops! … I Did It Again” vs. “… Baby One More Time.” Of Britney’s three VMA-winning videos that remained in round two, only her most recent win, “Till the World Ends,” will move forward to battle it out with “Lucky.”
Round three will also see two of Britney’s most iconic videos, “Toxic” and “I’m a Slave 4 U,” go up against each other; only one of them will make it to the Final Four.
Round three is open for voting until Wednesday, November 30, at 7 a.m. The final four will be announced and open for voting on the morning of Wednesday, November 30.
