With a bit of feathers, rhinestones and Sin City flare, authentic Las Vegas showgirls from Jubilee at Bally’s Las Vegas performed a Britney-inspired number to the international superstar’s chart-topping hit “Toxic” on The LINQ Promenade Fountain stage. To the crowd’s delight, the beautiful, long-legged showgirls revealed the one and only pop icon with their iconic feathered fans at the end of their performance.

Britney also announced her partnership with Zappos and the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF), where $1 of every ticket purchased to “Britney: Piece of Me” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino will be donated to NCCF.

“I am so proud to join forces with the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and support children and their families in need in my second home of Las Vegas, Nevada,” Britney said.

“We are thrilled that Britney Spears has chosen to partner with the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation with the support of Tony Hsieh and Zappos,” said Jeff Gordon, president and CEO of NCCF. “Britney brings with her so much passion for our cause and we feel privileged and honored to have her in our community and now as a part of the NCCF Family.”
