Britney sings 'You Outta Know' live in this new vid

We are as shocked as you are. Britney can apparently stand up, hold a microphone AND carry a tune all at the same time. Two questions:

1. Where has this Britney been hiding?


Amazing. A glimpse of what could be - and if she knows what's good for her, what will be.

Chart Chat UK: September 6, 2009

The 'epic chart battle' of the week is over, and it's 1776 all over again. The American Jay-z (and Rihanna and Kanye West) track reigns supreme over Brit girls Sugababes who are relegated to number 2 with the first single off their upcoming album. To be fair, the 'babes never really had a chance against such a pedigree, as 'Run This Town' matches three of hip-hop's biggest luminaries. Also new in the top 10 are Kings of Leon, whose 'Sex On Fire' screams into the number 6 position after the song was performed on the X-Factor. The track is already the most-downloaded song in UK history, and this rather staggering re-entry proves there are somehow still a few people who don't already own it. Woman of the moment - or should we say Lady - Ms. Gaga helps Wale to a number 12 spot with 'Chillin,' while Just Jack hangs around with his new track at 15. The 16 spot goes to Booty Luv's 'Say It,' which while not the outright bomb of the week (we'll get to that in a moment), is a far cry from the top 10 successes they enjoyed with the last couple songs. There's little else of note in the top 40...Temper Trap hangs out at 29 with 'Sweet Disposition,' and Prodigy make an appearance at 38 with 'Take Me To The Hospital.' Perhaps most interesting is what is NOT in the top 40 this week. Dolly Rockers, the ScopiSat favorite and much-buzzed-about girlband, are nowhere to be seen. The girls' first proper single, 'Gold Digger,' is a mix of talky northern sass and hooky chorus and it quite frankly is a bit of a shock to not see it at least in the make a bit of a splash. This certainly isn't how their big debut was meant to go, but hopefully there is more to come from the terrific trio. Next week brings another hotly-tipped debut, from Mini Viva with 'I Left My Heart In Tokyo.' As of this writing the track already in the top 15 on iTunes so it looks like they'll avoid the DOA label. To see just how far they manage to actually go, check back next week!
