Britney Spears To Open MTV's Video Awards Once Again

Britney Spears (photosBritney Spears photos) will be getting a second chance, of sorts.

A year after her disastrous performance at the MTV Video Awards, the network has announced that Spears will once again open the awards show -- only this time it won't be with a performance. Instead, MTV President Van Toffler says it'll be something "fun and unexpected."

After last year's performance, which was billed as Britney's comeback, it's probably all the better that she will not be performing at the VMAs.

"MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated," Spears said in a statement. She's been nominated for three VMAs, including video of the year.

Britney headlining the show last year had ratings up 23 percent over the 2006 show, so you know why MTV isn't shy about trying. But in recent months, Spears has somewhat cleaned up her act so maybe it will go better than a lot of us expect.

Here's the clip for her nomination for video of the year, 'Piece of Me'. The awards show airs Sunday, September 7, on MTV at 9 PM:
