Jordin Sparks replaces Ciara as opener on Britney Spears' tour
She joins One Call, Girlicious Kristinia DeBarge, the other supporting acts, who were previously announced.
According to Rap-Up.com, a spokesperson for Ciara said she's no longer on the tour, though she opened a few dates in the U.K. No reason was specified.
Meanwhile, some of the only officially released footage from Britney's Circus tour has hit Yahoo!, and features the bat-shit crazy lengthy opening sequence to the performance. And some botchy lip-syncing on the pop princess' part.
