Britney Spears made MTV history in New York last night (10NOV03) when she closed down the city's 44th Street and Broadway to perform live for the first time on hit show TOTAL REQUEST LIVE.

Wearing extremely low-cut brown leather trousers, a midriff bearing top and a fedora hat, the pop superstar performed ME AGAINST THE MUSIC and BOOM BOOM, from her forthcoming album IN THE ZONE, for thousands of fans who braved a chilly New York night to see Britney.

Fans, who had gathered as early as 8am yesterday to make sure they had prime position for the two-song free concert, were rewarded by MTV staff when they were allowed to ask their heroine questions.

Devotees held their questions, written on posters, aloft and Britney picked which ones to answer.
