"The show was amazing, incredible, on all levels of production and entertainment," says the group's Brian Kelley.

On Sunday night (May 17), Florida Georgia Line headed to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, which featured the debut live performance of Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea's collaborative single "Pretty Girls." One night prior to the awards show, FGL's Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were spotted in the crowd of Spears' Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood -- and the superstar country duo said that they loved what they saw.



"[It was a] last-minute kind of decision, and her family hooked us up with some amazing seats," Kelley told Billboard on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet. "Her dad was running us around, taking care of us. And the show was amazing, incredible, on all levels of production and entertainment, man. I think she crossed off every little emotion and thing you could do. It was a great night."

And the guys agree on their favorite Spears song to see live: her debut single, "…Baby One More Time." "That's a classic oldie, man," says Hubbard. "That was pretty sick."

Florida Georgia Line, who took home the Billboard Music Award for Country Artist of the Year, has been touring throughout 2015 and will continue performing their North American run later this month. Watch the video above to hear them express their excitement about the upcoming summer dates.
