Britney Spears narrowly avoids a major wardrobe malfunction -- VIDEO

The opening of Britney Spears’ residency Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas went off without a hitch. The second night, the pop star narrowly avoided what could have been a major wardrobe malfunction.

A video posted on Instagram shows the moment when Spears’ costume — one of 7 she wears throughout the 90-minute show — pops open as she performs the song “Circus,” revealing her bare back and threatening to expose her front. Luckily, two quick-thinking back-up dancers jump into action and manage to get Britney — who keeps on dancing — zipped back into her corset.

Watch the video of the near disaster after the jump.

Finale Fashion Face-Off: Britney Spears vs. Christina Aguilera -- POLL

Between The Voice and The X Factor, it was an epic week of reality singing competition finales, but for PopStylers, the real showdown was between age-old rivals Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

Normally it’s Aguilera who opts for the plunging neckline, but the “Genie in a Bottle” singer (like how I went with a classic? Forget Lotus) was surprisingly restrained on Tuesday night’s Voice finale. Who knows? Maybe she wanted to redeem herself after last year’s sparkly hot pants debacle. The coach sported jeans, an open drape jacket, and a loose-fitting (!!!) shirt. Top it all off with a blonde bob and a strong red lip, and she looked almost… classy.

Spears, on the other hand, went with a backless bodice dress with sheer front panels by Bottega Veneta, towering over her contestant, 13-year-old Carly Rose Sonenclar, in YSL heels. While I’m a fan of the two tones (if not the bondage vibe), the whole look is made sloppy by the high bun. Come on, Britney! You’re better than this.

Those are my thoughts, but which outfit do you like better? Vote below!

PopStyle Kudos: Britney Spears' 'X Factor' fashion comeback

Britney, you’ve had a number of fashion missteps over the years. There was that awful appearance at the AMAs in ’01 when you turned up in a denim dress (I blame JT for that one), that time you performed at the MTV Video Music Awards wearing a sequined bra and panties, and don’t even get me started on the whole shaving your head incident. So when you decided to re-invent yourself as an X Factor judge, I’ll admit I had my doubts. After all, your old rival Christina Aguilera has worn a bevy of nightmarish outfits on The Voice. Would you fall prey to the same fate?

But you surprised me, Brit. The woman who took that chair traded midriff-baring tops and an over-abundance of fishnets for figure-flattering dresses, posh heels, and a sleek hairstyle. It’s not just a fashion comeback, it’s a fashion triumph! In honor of tonight’s X Factor finale, here’s a look back at some of your best outfits this season. SEE MORE PHOTOS
