Britney Spears took to The Ellen Show‘s YouTube channel on Oct. 18 to announce that her Domination Las Vegas residency will start in Feb. 2019 at the MGM Park Theater, and fans are, naturally, flipping out.
The Britney Army’s response to the news was met with a mix of excitement at her return on the Las Vegas Strip and a bit of disappointment at the muted reveal. Spears rose onto the stage, lit by fireworks and the word “Domination” written in neon, but without performing or commenting on the residency, left wordlessly.
Some Britney stans had a whole lot of fun at their queen’s expense, while others were left in awe at the pop star’s majesty. “Only Britney would make an announcement without even talking,” one Twitter commenter wrote.

Queen of Vegas but we also wanted a new album

I love that Britney Spears announced her new Las Vegas residency while an episode of HTGAWM was airing. We love a cinematic parallel & queens of domination. pic.twitter.com/xpRwU68rN5

That was the worst 30 minutes of my life. What horrible production of the announcement and it wasn’t even anything new!
