Britney caught lip-syncing as mic gets stuck in her hair during awkward Tokyo gig

Oh Britney, we do love you, but we can’t deny that you’ve been awkwardly (and rather spectacularly) caught lip-syncing.

What are the new lyrics to Robbie Williams’ Manchester terror tribute song Strong?

Pop music favourite Britney is known for her catchy songs, memorable dance routines and her ability to always get the crowd going.

Many adults even now secretly wish to snag those coveted Britney Spears concert tickets, and for those lucky ones who saw her this weekend in Japan, they got a taste of something a little different.

During a performance of 2001 hit I’m A Slave 4 U, Britney got caught out.

As she danced against a pole she was wearing a mask, sounds entertaining right?

But as she removed her mark she managed to somehow remove her mic which got tangled in her hair, but embarrassingly the ‘vocals’ she was supposedly singing live, carried on, revealing that she had been lip syncing the whole time.

Britney struggled to remove the mic, which was stuck in her hair, and at one point even stopped dancing as she wrestled with it.

The vocals continued to play on, leaving concert-goers confused as to what was going on.

When she managed to fix her headset, she still appeared slightly out of sync with the lyrics.

Thankfully she managed to get back on form, and in later videos she is seen confidently ruling the stage.

See you! 👋🏻😘 #KeepOnDancingTillTheWorldEnds #OhMyGod #BritneyLiveInConcert #LiveInTokyo

Don’t worry Britney, despite your lip-syncing we still think you’re great. Just be careful with that mic next time.
