Britney Spears suffered a wardrobe malfunction Saturday night that could have been disastrous if it weren’t for her quick-thinking backup dancers.

The pop star kicked off her two-year "Piece of Me" Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood last week to huge fanfare and stellar reviews. The 90-minute, 21-song tribute to Spears' latest and greatest hits wowed the sold-out crowds but she almost lost it Saturday night during the song "Circus" when the zipper on the back of her costume came undone.

With her ensemble flapping in the wind and nearly her whole back exposed, Spears carried on as best she could while a couple of backup dancers scrambled to fix it.

Critics have been raving about Spears' new tour.

"Spears’ mission in a nutshell: to turn a cavernous 7,000-seat amphitheater into a raging nightclub," wrote Marco della Cava in USA Today. "Mission accomplished."

When the residency was first announced in the fall, Spears' manager Larry Rudolph took a lot of heat for saying that the star would likely use a backing track for her vocals.

"It's hard for the public to understand what goes on when you get on stage and you're dancing full out during a song," he told Billboard in September. "No matter what anyone says, there's not a single artist who goes out there and does full choreography and is singing without a vocal track underneath them. … It's physically impossible."

That fact would normally set critics off, but even they didn’t mind.

"Her voice didn't miss a beat," Sophie Schillaci at MTV reported. "That's not say her vocals weren't live. At times, her sweet voice shone through the backing, or we could hear her catching her breath between numbers."
