X17 can confirm that Britney Spears WILL perform at the Video Music Awards in Las Vegas on September 9 with Criss Angel as her partner in the gig!

An X17 source told us Brit and Criss were meeting last night to work on their performance and to start going over the choreography plan with the dancers (above pic). And look at that Prada briefcase -- this was strictly business!
