Britney Spears' Las Vegas residency named Best Overall Show

Britney Spears' Las Vegas residency has been named Best Overall Show in the city.

The 33-year-old performer's 'Britney: Piece of Me' show at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino won the title in a poll by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, with voters also crowning it the Best Bachelorette Party.

The 113-show residency began in December 2013 and is currently set to continue until September 2015, with the star previously confirming the show - which features 24 tracks spanning her 16-year career - will run until at least 2016.

The 'Womanizer' hitmaker - who has sons Preston, nine, and Jayden, eight, with former husband Kevin Federline - previously revealed she was inspired to take up a series of shows on the famous Strip after being taken backstage during Celine Dion's residency in 2003.

She said: "I remember how beautiful it was - really cool, low-key - and [Celine's] dressing room was great.

"I was actually jealous, like, 'Oh, my gosh, she gets to be in one place all the time.' Everything clicked: To have your children and your family and that way of life, it just makes sense to have everything in one place."

Despite being applauded for having the best show, it was revealed earlier this year that 'Candle in the Wind' hitmaker Sir Elton John has overtaken Britney as the highest-earning performer in Las Vegas, earning $500,000 (£338,290), beating her reported $475,000 (£321,380) fee per show.

Tickets to see 'Britney: Piece of Me' in Las Vegas are currently available for dates throughout April, May, August and September.
