6 Celebs Who Do Britney Spears Impressions, From Amy Poehler's "Y'alls" To Ariana Grande's Unreal Singing — VIDEOS
Britney Spears is a veritable pop music icon, which means, in addition to her legions of adoring stans, millions upon millions of albums sold, and general iconic status, there are a number of people out there who can imitate her pretty damn well. And, fortunately for literally the entire world, some of those people just happen to be her famous peers, like Christina Aguilera, Nicole Scherzinger, Ariana Grande, and more, who can all nail those breathy Britney vocals like whoa. YAS Britney stans, Britney Spears impressions are happening and they are happening right now.
In addition to the songs that bring me back to my childhood (you can't get anymore '90s than "E-mail My Heart"), one of my favorite things about Britney Spears is the fact that her fans have a nickname for every one of her personas, from brilliant monikers like Godney to other works of pure genius, like Brunetteney (Britney with brown hair, for those who aren't ~in the know~.)
So therefore, in keeping with #BritneyArmy tradition, may I present to you the likes of Xtinaney, Sherzney, Ariana Grandney, Katy Perney, Jennifer Anistoney, and Amy Poehlerney, who all do killer and totally unique imitations of the Princess of Pop. It's Britney (impressions), bitch. Enjoy.
Christina Aguilera's Britney Spears Impression
Of course, no one can do a better Britney Spears impersonation than her Mickey Mouse Club arch-rival, Christina Aguilera. And Xtina made all of our dreams come true on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, singing "This Little Piggy" in the style of Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time." My reaction to Christina's spot-on Britney is basically the raised hands emoji, ten-fold.
Nicole Scherzinger's Britney Spears Impression
Props to Nicole Scherzinger for hyping up a Britney Spears impression that really effing delivered. She spent so long getting the audience at Conan psyched for her Britney impersonation that I was a little concerned that it wasn't going to live up to my expectations, but oh, was I so glad to be wrong. Close your eyes and the former Pussycat Doll literally is Britney Spears, in the best possible way.
Ariana Grande's Britney Spears Impression
Ariana Grande's Celine Dion impression is actually insane, but her Britney should not be overlooked — especially when you realize she's solid decade younger than some of her fellow Britney Spears' impersonators and can still kick it with the best of 'em.
Katy Perry's Britney Spears Impersonation
Yeah, Christina Aguilera, Nicole Scherzy, and Ariana Grande can nail dat Britney vocal, but only Katy freaking Perry can show up to an awards show with Riff Raff literally dressed like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2002 and hit it outta the park. The "Firework" singer rocked the coordinated denim ensemble as a response to an impersonation challenge from Ms. Spears herself, who loved it just as much as the rest of the world. Touche, Katy Perney. Touche.
Jennifer Aniston's Britney Spears Impression
There is nothing that better encapsulates the essence of 2004-era Britney Spears than Jennifer Aniston in a Von Dutch hat and crop top. That is all.
Amy Poehler's Britney Spears Impression
God bless the magic that is Amy Poehler. Sure, I totally fangirl over everything she does right now because I just read her memoir and am making my way through Parks and Recreation on Netflix, but Amy Poehler's Britney Spears impression brings me back to everything that was wonderful about the year 2006. Sure, her take on the pop princess was no Xtina-as-Britney, but it was infused with enough "y'alls" and Kevin Federline do-rag references to make me remember everything I loved about Chaotic and the whole Britney Spears/K. Fed relationship.
Britney 4eva, y'all.
