UPDATE: Britney Spears will announce her new Las Vegas show on Tuesday's "Good Morning America," which begins at 7 a.m. locally.

The announcement is being made from the middle of the desert near Las Vegas. Follow @GMA on Twitter and @SamChampion for the latest information and pictures from the event.

Also, follow @BritneySpears for her tweets about the big not-so-secret announcement.


Britney Spears will be regularly performing live in Vegas starting in December. Daily Mail reports the show will have a "cool, hip club-like show," in 60-90 minute sets. TMZ even has blueprints of Spears' supposed set. 

NY Post reports the pop star signed a 48-shows per year contract which will bring her in a sizzling 29 million after her two year run is over. Earning $310,000 per show, she'll be make 60 percent of the shows projected sales ($508,514.)

In contrast, TMZ reports that Celine Dion will still be the queen of Vegas performing in 70 shows a year and earning $476,000 a show. 

With the announcement quickly following the release of her new song, "Work B****," the artist is gearing up for her new album, to be released in the coming months. Daily Mail also reports that Britney, "went for a Vegas showgirl theme for the cover artwork for her upcoming single, Work B***h, baring her cleavage in a Sin City-inspired plunging blue sequin leotard with dramatic feather detail. In the corner of the shot, apparently set in a dressing room, the iconic Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas sign can be seen stuck on a mirror."
