Instead of performing live, Britney Spears offers a pre-taped video message to fans at NBC's tree-lighting event at the Rockefeller Center's Art Deco Plaza.
Britney Spears has reportedly upset NBC's producers as she calls off her planned live appearance at the network's live event "Christmas in Rockefeller Center". An insider told OK! Magazine, "You have no idea how many times Britney has changed things on us, at least 14 times since I got here on Thursday."
"It is Britney Spears and she can do that because they want her to boost ratings, but no one is happy putting up with this," the insider revealed more to the publication. "I probably shouldn't say this, but guys on the crew were making bets about whether she would show up at all."
"She was originally supposed to perform live and then she wanted to pre-tape her performance instead," the insider explained. "Then she didn't want to do that. She keeps changing her mind and now she's not performing at all."
However, latest report in the media says that Britney has showed up in the Rockefeller Center, taping a video greeting for the Wednesday's night show. From the photos posted on Just Jared, she is seen appearing in front of the camera in a black winter coat.
"Christmas in Rockefeller Center" is an annual tree-lighting ceremony which will be aired on December 3 at 8 - 9 P.M. ET/PT this year. Hosted by Al Roker, the show lines up performances from Miley Cyrus, Beyonce Knowles, David Cook, Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr., Rosie O'Donnell, The Broadway Kids, Rascal Flatts, Jamie Foxx and Solange Knowles.
