Britney Covers Madonna's "Burning Up" — And It's Good!

Britney Spears, in her current role as the Queen of Vegas, may not be moving units like she once did, but she's still keeping the myth alive for thousands of fans a night, Celine Dion-style. And, every so often, she throws us a curveball, in downloadable form.
Here we have pop's ultimate Southern belle paying tribute to her spiritual godmother Madonna with a cover of 1983's hit "Burning Up." Originally performed live on Britney's Femme Fatale tour a few years back — to the delight of both Brit and Madge's fans — this studio version has finally surfaced on YouTube. It is sparkly, dance-y, and overall pretty decent.
