UPDATED:

Contrary to this morning’s reports, Britney will not be performing at the Teen Choice Awards. She will still attend the show, and will be honored with the Ultimate Choice Award at the show, where she’s nominated for Choice Music: Single, for her song “Circus,” Choice Music: Female Artist and Choice Music: Tour.

An announcement on her website reads:

“Britney is appearing, not performing at the TCAs. We are deeply sorry for any confusion and disappointment and appreciate the ongoing dedication of Britney's wonderful fans.”

We’re sad she’s not performing, but at least she’ll still be at the show!
