Voting in round three of MTV News’ Britney Spears Tournament: 30 Videos for 30 Years has officially closed and we’re now down to the Final Four. Will “Lucky” get lucky against the naughtier “Criminal” video? Will “Hold It Against Me” get served by “I’m a Slave 4 U“? Second-round voting is now open so you can help decide.
At the end of round three, “Lucky” pushed ahead of “Till the World Ends” at the last minute, beating the newer video by less than 0.5 percent of the vote. And although “Stronger” held the lead for most of the third round, “Criminal” overpowered the 2000 video late Tuesday night.
Britney’s collaborator on “Me Against the Music,” Madonna, officially exited the tournament after the duet fell to “Hold It Against Me,” which also came as a last-minute surprise since the Brit/Madge collabo held the advantage for most of round three.
In perhaps the most competitive pairing of the third round, two of Britney’s widely celebrated videos, “Toxic” and “I’m a Slave 4 U” were pitted against each other, but sweaty Britney out-danced double-agent Britney. MTV News’ Britney video experts have already predicted that “Slave 4 U” will be the biggest threat in the Final Four.
