Britney was the special guest host this year. Anytime she doesn't have her extensions messily gathered into a ponytail or isn't wearing something with Starbucks stains on it, it's kind of a win for her. Still, one deep look into her face and all you can see is that dead-eyed, "Time to make the donuts" vibe. It's kind of sad, in some instances, when life imitates art (minus the glamour).

Oh, speak of the devil…I don't know what it is, but there's just something about her that's so two-day-old underpants. You know?
