MTV viewers want another "piece" of Britney Spears.
The pop star, who memorably put on one of the most perplexing and vilified performances in recent award show history on last year’s Video Music Awards, has been shortlisted by MTV voters as one of the nominees at this year’s show.
Brit’s video for "Piece of Me" is up for Best Female Video, selected via online voting at vma.mtv.com. Her competition, as well as contenders for Best Male Video, will be unveiled on Pete Wentz‘s FN’MTV Friday night at 8 p.m.
The nomination gives the 26-year-old 15 total in her career; however, Britney has yet to score a Moon Man at the award show.
Maybe that will all change this year, and maybe she will even stop by to pick up the statuette — and more.
Last month, MTV President Van Toffler teased that he would consider inviting Britney back to perform on the VMAs.
"Everyone deserves a second or third chance, right?" he asked.
The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by British comedian Russell Brand, will air live Sept. 7, 2008.
