When you've performed at as many MTV Video Music Awards (opens in new tab) as Britney Spears, some will inevitably slip through the cracks. It's just that, usually, you remember your first.

"I think I was with 'NSync when I performed for the first time," she said during an interview with Elvis Duran and the Z Morning Zoo on Monday. "I think the whole setup was a classroom, and my four main dancers were in the front at their desk and I came out of my locker. But, you know what, I don't remember at all. I have no recollection. I couldn't tell you anything about it."
