No lip-syncing here

Another week, another way Britney Spears is proving she is a queen.

As she winds toward the end of her Las Vegas residency in January, Spears gave her latest audience something major to talk about: She deviated from the usual set list and sang a surprise cover completely live.

In addition to all the classics, Spears busted out a surprise rendition of Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About," and she sounded amazing. Luckily, someone in the crowd captured it on video so we can all hear that Spears definitely still has it.

Spears has gotten some flak over the last three years about whether she lip syncs or sings during her residency, and the answer is a little bit of both — she sings as much as she can, but during intense dance sequences, she has a track playing. This song was completely live, though, and she sounds just as great.

She also had a strong message for some of the haters she's faced throughout her career, especially the media that fixated on her as she struggled through tougher times.

"I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, right? This morning I woke up…looked at the news, lot of things going on in the world and stuff," she said. "One minute they tear you down, and that's really horrible, and the next minute you're on top of the world, but I've never really spoke about it. I'm a Southern girl, I'm from Louisiana. I'm from the South, and I like to keep it real, so I just want to make sure I keep giving you motherfuckers something to talk about."

And that's when the music started and she transitioned flawlessly into the song.
