No, oops here, Britney Spears is doing it again.

Spears is following in Celine Dion’s footsteps and heading to Vegas. The 31-year old singer has inked a two-year deal for a 48-date residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, she announced on ABC’s Good Morning America.

The show, called “Britney: Piece of Me,” will open on Dec. 27. As for what fans can expect of the spectacle, Spears said the show will be an action-packed performance filled with her greatest hits — old and new —  in an atmosphere that is somewhere between nightclub and theater. On GMA she said the show will feel as much like Broadway as a concert, “We wanted the environment to be that way so people could come and have a good time and stand up and feel like they’re in the show with me.” Spears is rumored to be earning $30 million over two years for the residency.

The singer, who’s eighth studio album will be released Dec. 3, has been training five hours a day to prepare for the show. “I’m definitely ready,” she said. The mother of sons Sean, 7, and Jayden, 6, has been staging a steady comeback after after a few rough years that included two marriages, two divorces, a psychological breakdown in 2008 that resulted in a hospitalization. Her return to the public eye began with a stint judging on The X Factor.

Spears is now focusing on her music – her new single, “Work B*tch,” leaked over the weekend – and she is collaborating with stars like will.i.am and Miley Cyrus, another Disney child star who has made headlines in recent weeks.

Tickets for “Britney: Piece of Me” go on sale Sept. 20. Prices range from $59 to $179.
