A week from today is showtime for Britney Spears as her new residency at Las Vegas's Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, titled Piece of Me, opens. An executive at Caesars Entertainment (owner of Planet Hollywood) announced publicly that Piece of Me will feature at least 21 Brit hits. "It's a retrospective on some of the most iconic moments of her life combined with the contemporary material she's doing today," VP of entertainment Kurt Melien told the Las Vegas Sun. Britney herself said the show will include "snow, water, rain, everything," as well, wait for it, live singing by the superstar. The Advocate will be there for opening night, so stay tuned for updates. — Neal Broverman
