It was Britney Spears night on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars, where the show paid tribute to the pop star via outfits worn by host Tyra Banks and the contestants, as well as by using plenty of classic Spears songs for the dances.
Some viewers at home were loving the night’s theme and took to Twitter with their satisfaction.

But many were just too distracted by the music, given that all of the songs were performed by the house band. This is because playing the actual songs would presumably cost too much money for clearance rights. So viewers wondered things like, “How did DWTS plan an entire Britney Spears night and not secure a single song?”
#DWTS I feel like ABC is punking their fans right now. These Britney covers are awful. @

While it's definitely been an eventful year for Spears and her fans, with the #FreeBritney movement resulting in the end of her father’s conservatorship, it doesn’t seem like another Britney Spears-themed night on Dancing With the Stars is something fans will be saying, “gimme gimme more,” to anytime soon.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
