Miley Cyrus Performs Two Songs, Pokes Fun At Government Shutdown On ‘Saturday Night Live’


There seems to be no end in sight for the reign of Miley Cyrus.

Serving as both host and musical guest just days after making headlines for her raciest photo spread to date, Miley Cyrus took the stage at Rockefeller Plaza last night to appear on Saturday Night Live. The pop sensation did a passable job by all accounts, and this morning the show’s best moments are making their way around the net.

Starting with the performances, Miley took the obvious and delivered live renditions of “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” on the long-running sketch show. The full band rendition of “Wrecking Ball” was the highlight of the night,proving once and for all that live instrumentation tops even the slickest studio produced noise. “We Can’t Stop” was also rearranged, this time into an acoustic ballad, with results that were at the very least better than Miley’s wardrobe (you’ll see).

As for her comedic skills, Cyrus seemed to perform better than the majority of Hollywood names who grace the legendary NBC studio stage. She mocked her public persona throughout the evening, as well the government shutdown, and even found a way to cover both areas in a single sketch by delivering “We Did Stop,” a parody of her own song (“We Can’t Stop”) about the problems in Washington. You can view this, as well as the two performances mentioned above, at the end of this post.

Miley’s press onslaught will probably continue well into the week as her new album, Bangerz, arrives in stores Tuesday. Comment below and let us know what you thought of Miley’s time on SNL.
