Brit walked off stage just an hour into her set Wednesday night when it became "uncomfortable and unsafe for the performers" because the arena was filled with smoke.


Britney Spears' comeback continues with an impressive reported seven Moon Man nominations for the upcoming 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

According to E! Online's Marc Malkin, Britney could top last year's VMA performance, where she walked away with three trophies for "Piece of Me."
