We would kill for a private Britney Spears concert, but Jimmy Kimmel didn’t look too pleased to have the pop star performing in his bedroom. The reason why? He was just woken up from a peaceful sleep at home.

In a sneak peek video from tonight’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Spears sneaks into the host’s house under the cover of darkness with a gang of shirtless backup dancers. “Okay so we have a surprise for Jimmy. We’re going to go wake him up and see what happens.”

In another clip, the party shuffles into Kimmel’s room, even bringing in a strobe light for the performance. The music stars and Spears pops up with her squad, dancing along to her new single, “Make Me.”

The new single is on Spears’s new album, Glory, which she announced today. “My new album & the beginning of a new era,” she wrote on Instagram. Clearly this epic stunt was well-timed.

“Pranked in my sleep again. @BritneySpears & @Rihanna must be working together…” Kimmel wrote on Twitter. Rihanna pulled a similar prank last year when she sneaked into the host’s bedroom at 1 a.m. and performed her single, “Bitch Better Have My Money.”

Tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight for Kimmel’s sure-to-be hilarious reaction.
