Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and MTV at MTV Video Music Awards - Thursday 6th November 2008

* SPEARS OPENS Madonna SHOW AND WOWS STADIUM CROWD Fans didn't have to wait long for the much-hyped Britney Spears and MADONNA collaboration at the Material Girl's Dodgers Stadium show in Los Angeles on Thursday night (06Nov08) - the pop stars opened the show. As expected, Spears joined Madonna for a version of Human Nature, but no one expected the pop pair to team up so early in the evening. Wearing black pants and a white top, Spears stunned the sold-out crowd by singing and dancing with her heroine before she was lowered beneath the stage at the end of the number as portions of the crowd cried out her name. It was a tame stage collaboration compared to the last time Madonna performed with Spears - the pair hit the headlines back in 2003 when they locked lips during a wedding themed routine at the MTV Video Music Awards. Spears' ex Justin Timberlake was also billed to perform onstage with Madonna as WENN went to press - he was set to recreate 4 Minutes, the song he recorded with Madonna for her latest album, with the Material Girl towards the end of her Dodgers Stadium show. The show was a big success, despite fears about the stage after a minor collapse on Wednesday (05Nov08). Prior to Thursday night's show, Madonna said, Even though my stage roof was damaged and some lights and effects aren't working, I want to do the show anyway because I don't want to disappoint my fans.
