Family matters! Britney Spears’ family came out to support her for her big performance at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on Sunday, May 22.
The “Pretty Girls” singer’s younger sibling, Jamie Lynn, attended the show with daughter Maddie, 7, and husband Jamie Watson, while the Spears sisters’ mom, Lynne, sat in the audience to watch her superstar daughter slay.
Before they took their seats, an eyewitness tells Us Weekly that the Grammy winner’s family was hanging out backstage before she wowed the crowd.
“They all seemed to be in a very mellow mood,” the onlooker tells Us. “Serious looks on their faces.”
Spears, 34, opened the ceremony with an electrifying medley of her greatest hits, as well as a few deep cuts from her 2003 album, In the Zone. The pop diva, who looked hotter than ever in several skin-baring costumes by Mark Zunino, treated the star-studded audience to nearly eight minutes of entertainment, which included epic throwback moments (the dance breakdown from “I’m a Slave 4 U!”) and stunning theatrics.
Not only did Spears set the bar high for the rest of the night, she received the prestigious Millennium Award, an honor that has previously been given to artists such as Beyoncé and the late Whitney Houston. Her ninth studio album is expected to drop this summer, following the release of her upcoming single “Make Me.”
