Britney Spears was the guest of honor at this weekend’s Radio Disney Music Awards in Los Angeles, taking the night’s top honor, the inaugural Icon Award. A handful of stars were on hand to honor Spears, including Kelsea Ballerini, who paid tribute to Spears twice over the course of the show.
Ballerini took the stage in a red pleather bodysuit to perform Spears’ 2000 classic “Oops!… I Did It Again,” before joining Hailee Steinfeld, Sofia Carson, and Spears’ own sister Jamie Lynn for 2011’s Femme Fatale single “Till the World Ends.” Throughout the performances, Spears could be seen dancing and singing along in the audience.
