The MTV Video Music Awards are tonight and everyone's super jazzed about Britney Spears' big comeback. Even old people like me who still say things like "super jazzed." In case you haven't been following her Instagram, which is a treasure in and of itself, Britney's back at the top of her game. The pop princess will be performing her new single, "Make Me..." at the awards, and none of our lives will ever be the same, probably. To hold us over until the big performance, let's take a look back at Britney's most iconic performances over the last 17 years.

If I had to choose, I'd say this is the worst Britney VMA performance. She had to sing Madonna's song, wear Madonna's bride outfit, and suck face with Madonna. Nothing against Madge, but I'd rather see Britney lip syncing her OWN songs ya know? The greatest part of this performance is when the camera cuts to Britney's ex Justin Timberlake right after the kiss. Remember that juicy drama? Christina Aguilera was there too, but no one really gave a rip.
