Britney Spears is campaigning for R&B superstar Usher to step up and join her on tour after Enrique Iglesias pulled out of plans to hit the road with her this summer.
The Toxic hitmaker’s live comeback plans were dealt a blow earlier this week when Spanish hunk Iglesias withdrew from the big North American trek, just hours after Spears made the official announcement on TV.

She is currently looking for another top artist to fill the vacant spot and she’s got her eye on the Yeah! star.

In an upcoming MTV special, she says, “I think Usher’s really great right now. I think he’s really hot right now. That would be cool (to tour with him).”

Britney Spears: I Am the Femme Fatale will air in America on Sunday.
