Poor Courtney Friel. Early this morning, the KTLA anchor was thrown in a Nevada desert to babble for an hour during the Planet Hollywood/BritneySpears.com livestream announcing Britney Spears' upcoming Vegas residency. Often, she had no idea what was going on — she wondered aloud half a dozen times if she would ever get to talk to Britney (spoiler alert: she didn't). During the technically plagued livestream, Friel regularly had no idea what to talk about, so she discussed the imminent sunrise a few times, pointed out the "gadgets" being used to film her, showed off cue cards, and at one point squealed, "Oh my gosh, look! There is a drone!" That last outburst is my favorite thing in the highlight reel we put together of Friel's bumbling antics above.

You can watch the entire livestream at BritneySpears.com. Sleep deprivation is a hell of a drug.

(H/T to Popjustice for the heads-up.)
