Yep, you can say Miley Cyrus’ 2013 American Music Awards performance was more mellow than most of her recent award show performances. At the MTV Video Music Awards she twerked up against Robin Thicke, while at the MTV Europe Music Awards she sparked a joint. Apart for some high-cropped bikini bottoms, Cyrus poured her heart out as usual during a run-thru of “Wrecking Ball,” but she didn’t do it alone. Behind her was a giant psychedelic kitten that lip-synced all the lyrics with her. It cried too.
Cyrus wasn’t up for any 2013 AMAs. Her album Bangerz was only released this past October.
