Oh no! Beyonce just absolutely CRUSHED her massive medley at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28, so when it was announced that Britney Spears would follow the epic performance the internet exploded with memes mocking the sticky situation. See the funniest, right here!
This is just sad. But the kind of sad that makes you laugh because it’s just so on-point. Britney Spears is an amazing hit-maker, and we’ve loved her for decades. However, she is notorious for struggling in live performances, often botching her lip-syncing and struggling with choreography. So when it was announced at the MTV Video Music Awards that she would follow Beyonce, Twitter went crazy.
That’s because BritBrit wasn’t just following ANY Beyonce performance. She was following the Beyonce performance of the century! Seriously. Beyonce performed tons of her hits both new and old, and she was ON IT. She changed outfits several times, hit her choreography extra hard, and her vocals were completely amazing. She legit outdid herself. And immediately after we hear “Britney Spears is up next.” Yikes.
So fans rushed to Twitter to share hilarious photos of how Britney must be feeling. They ranged from her looking freaked out to her straight-up drinking bleach. One Twitter user compared the events as following a steak dinner with soup. Ouch! We must say, Britney did a great job in her performance with G-Eazy of “Make Me” and “Me, Myself & I,” but it’s just hard to measure up to the Queen Bey. Here are some of the most hilarious reactions we could find to Brit following Beyonce.

It really wasn't fair to bring Britney Spears on after Beyoncé. Tbh they probably should have just ended the VMAs after Beyoncé.#VMAs
