Miley Cyrus performed “Wrecking Ball” on Saturday Night Live this past weekend; that she was fully clothed is probably the most shocking thing she’s done so far. Though, to say she was “fully clothed” is a bit generous considering she was wearing a see-through jersey over a bra and underwear, Cyrus also wore a pair of cool black creepers so I’m giving her a hall pass.
Whatever your opinion on her is (mine, as of late, is a motherly concern where I just want to put a giant coat over her, buy her a milkshake and show her a few college brochures), there’s no denying that she can sing.
Many have choked on the famed SNL musical guest stage. Something about the small live audience and unforgiving acoustics in that studio tend to make even the best artists sound faulty, and yet I really think she sounded fantastic last night. Yes, the oversized jersey is surely Miley making some sort of statement that went right over my head (maybe the statement is that even when technically clothed, she somehow remains not) but it was nice to see her just standing and singing, with a band in the background and a mic in her hands as opposed to a sledgehammer.
Watch the video and tell us your thoughts. For once, a clip involving Miley is totally SFW, so don’t worry about opening this near your boss unless you’re supposed be in a meeting or something.
Also — the skits she performed in were pretty funny too, so if you don’t have an opinion on the singing, what did you think of the acting? You can watch the clips here.
