“She’s going to be singing live,” he insisted. “She does choreography and vocal coaching every day. The vocal coaching is really just to strengthen her voice and get her to a point where she can go out there every night and do a full show. “It’s hard for the public to fully understand what goes on when you get on stage and you’re dancing full out during a song,” he continued. “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 at the same time. It’s physically impossible. We’re just trying to build up her stamina and get her to a point where she can do as much as humanly possible. The idea is to try to get her pretty close to 100%. There might be some numbers where she’s full out dancing with a track underneath her, but there won’t be any lip-syncing across the board on anything.” Rudolph who denied that ticket sales for the residency had been sluggish and the rumour had only been caused by “idiot tabloid reporters” also gave an update on Spears’ new LP. He claimed that the album, which is being executive produced by Will.i.am, was “so different from anything she’s done before” and that there were tracks with an “EDM vibe”. He then said: “I really think of this as Britney’s ‘Ray of Light’ album it’s kind of like that in a lot of ways. She wrote everything on the album with collaborators. There’s one or two she wrote herself. That’s something she wanted to do coming in. She wanted to make it very personal.
