Spears, Timberlake Take the Stage at Madonna's Los Angeles Concert

November 7, 2008 8:40 AM ET

As rumored, both Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake joined Madonna onstage last night during the Material Girl's Sticky & Sweet stop at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. During "Human Nature," the third song of the evening, Madonna handled the bulk of the Bedtime Stories track while the video of Spears freaking out in an elevator played in the background as usual. During the final chorus, Spears finally emerged, sharing the singing duties with Madonna before being lowered into center stage to make her grand exit. Shaky YouTube footage of the performance can be seen here. Justin Timberlake also showed up later in the night, joining Madonna as he often does for Hard Candy's "4 Minutes." Check the video here. Rumors abound that Brit might show up again during Madonna's Las Vegas shows this weekend, but nothing's been confirmed as of yet. Spears' new album, Circus, is due December 2nd.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
