The show booked not one, but three, A-plus-list divas in A-plus roles: Britney Spears to run down a career highlight medley, Madonna to pay tribute to the late Prince, and Celine Dion in her first live appearance since losing her husband and brother to cancer. Spears, who was given the splashiest (opening) slot, took this responsibility very seriously—in some ways more than others.
