13 Reasons Britney Spears' Spectacular 2000 Grammys Performance Was The Greatest Grammy Moment Of All Time

From the bottom of my broken heart, I speak the truth.

Last week, Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich told HITS Daily Double that in his 35 years of producing the Grammy Awards, Britney Spears' 2000 performance stands out as one of the most disappointing in his mind. "I thought it was a mistake," he told the site. But, as any reasonable human being will tell you, the only mistake present is the opinion he offered.

Britney's performance of "From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart" and "...Baby One More Time" had everything, and I mean literally everything: dystopian robot dancers, floral puberty symbolism -- the only conceivable theme for the performance was, like, all the themes.

I present to you, 13 reasons why Britney's 2000 Grammy performance was one of the greatest Grammy moments of all time. And if you still disagree once you reach the end, you're not invited to my party in France.
