The first round is in the books and we're down to 32 songs remaining in the Britney Spears Song Bracket, as we try to determine the best Britney song of all time.
It didn't take long for us to get our first huge upset. In Thursday's first round action in the Crossroads Region, 15-seed "Trouble" knocked off 2-seed "Circus." I feared that my own personal bias toward the song might have resulted in Circus being overseeded, and that certainly turned out to be the case.
More disappointing for me was seeing 2 seed "Everytime" also go out in the first round. But the "Chaotic" Region lived up to its name, with 10, 13, and 15 seeds all advancing, leaving "Oops!...I Did It Again" an even more clear path to the Final Four. There's also now a good chance we'll get a matchup between the two versions of "Crazy" in the Sweet 16.
As was the case for the first round, second-round voting will take place on my Twitter page (@AdamReisinger), and you can check out the entire second round of the bracket below.
