Spears gave fans a special taste of what’s to come on her Circus Tour during a live performance from the Big Apple Circus tent in Lincoln Center on ABC-TV’s Good Morning America. On October 15, Spears’ new single, “Womanizer,” made a record-breaking jump to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and garnered first-week download sales of 286,000. This marked the biggest opening-week tally by a female artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital downloads in 2003. “Womanizer” is Spears’ ninth #1 single on the Hot 100 since her 1999 debut …Baby One More Time.

Spears’ live comeback began on November 6, 2008 with a cameo appearance at the Dodger Stadium show of Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour. Midway through “Human Nature,” Spears joined Madonna on stage. Previously, Spears re-entered the spotlight when she opened the MTV Video Music Awards on September 7th, her third appearance on the awards broadcast. Spears won Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video Of The Year for “Piece of Me.” On November 6, 2008, Spears won both “Album of the Year” and “Act of 2008” at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2008.

Britney Spears is one of the top-selling artists of the last decade, and to date she has sold in excess of 62 million albums worldwide. Her releases include: …Baby One More Time (1999); Oops!… I Did It Again (2000); Britney (2001); In the Zone (2003) and Blackout (2007).
