Speaking on radio show Cubby and Carolina In The Morning in the US, she said: "It's just something in the air at the VMAs, it's like electric. I can't really explain it.

"Every time I've performed there it's always been one of these nerve-wracking experiences."

"I still get very nervous," she added.

Good luck Britney!
