Britney's Kids Show They Can Dance Too

Britney Spears' two little boys have been spotted busting moves – and it seems the toddlers are a hit.

The pop star's sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two, were filmed dancing backstage as their mum rehearsed for her show at London's O2 arena. Britney originally posted the footage on her own website and it's now become a popular hit on YouTube. We've uploaded it for you to see after the turn.

The boys can be seen dancing to Britney's hit "Toxic", bopping away with their hula hoops in a performance that is more impressive than many seen on Top of the Pops.

Now I'll be the first to admit that these two little chaps are cute as buttons and having a great time, and I know every parent wants to show off the talents of their children, but it does seem a little bit odd that Britney should want to hoist her kids into the limelight like this.

The boys are being looked after by their dad Kevin Federline, who has brought them on Britney's world tour so she can be close to them while working.

It's a nice idea, but in an age when many celebrities fight to protect the privacy of their children, Britney seems to be actively trying to turn her kids into worldwide stars.

The pop princess has herself suffered in the media spotlight with well-documented personal problems which have been splashed across the press over the last few years.

And children of superstars are always at risk themselves – all that extra attention and cash has sent many down the wrong path.

Sure, lots of parents put videos of their children on YouTube, but isn't it different if you're a top celebrity?

What do you think? Is this just harmless fun or should Britney be more careful about throwing her kids to the lions of the world's media?
