Only moments after Britney Spears announced on Good Morning America that she would be touring this summer with Enrique Iglesias, the latin hottie pulled out completely from the opening act gig. Better sooner than later I guess. So now with the slot available, many artists have been in “talks” to fill his shoes, but who will get the coveted spot?
DJ Pauly D was first to head in to talks with Britney’s people after Enrique dropped the bomb of his departure. This wouldn’t be the first time he had opened for Britney as he spun before her surprise performance in Vegas and interluded each set with some of his own stylings. Is a DJ enough to keep a Britney crowd occupied before she hits the stage?
Another male in talks for the opening spot is Jonas Brother, Joe Jonas. Brother Nick has released a few solo tracks but I haven’t heard anything from Joe. Would this be his solo musical debut? Joe has said in interviews lately that dance music is where his heart is which makes his ‘style’ a perfect fit for the opening bill.
Nicki Minaj is the newest addition to through her hat in the ring for the bid. Nicki is currently already on tour but hey, why not jump on board with Brit Brit for the summer to reach a different audience. But is her music too much for some of Britney’s younger followers? Its not like her lyrics span a multi-generational audience.
So who will get the job? My money is on Joe Jonas. Just like Jordin Sparks did on her last tour, he’ll appeal to the multi-generation that attends a Britney show AND have you seen him lately? He is lookin’ hella hot. I’m not mad at him opening the show. Take a vote below for who think would be right to open for Britney.
