Could Britney Spears Replace Beyonce at Coachella This Year?

Could Adele, Britney Spears or Elton John replace Beyonce at Coachella this year? Will it be someone else? If you think you know the answer to that question it may be time to call Vegas to put your money where your mouth is.

A popular sports betting website has put together some odds on who Beyonce’s replacement will be at Coachella. Yes, this is a real thing. Then again, let’s not forget that prop bets existed on what hair color Super Bowl halftime performer Lady Gaga would have this year. So this may not be as far-fetched as we’d imagine.

By the way, in case you were living under a rock: Beyonce is pregnant with twins, and her doctors have ordered that she cancel the scheduled performance at Coachella this April. 

So the odds for Beyonce’s Coachella replacement are based on a number of factors including travel/tour logistics, the artist’s price tag (how much they would need to be paid to appear), and the likelihood that they’d want to perform at Coachella at all, SportsBettingExperts.com says. In fact, logistics like where each performer will be in the days before and after Coachella seem to have played the biggest role in these odds. 

Britney is not scheduled to perform in April. Her Vegas residency has a break in April, so it is possible that she'd be available.

Of course, these odds (for all of these artists) are meant strictly in good fun. We have, however, highlighted some of our favorite prop odds below:
