Miley Cyrus Stuns Crowd At VMAs

Miley Cyrus had the most memorable moment at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The provocative pop singer was the hot topic at Sunday night’s show: Cyrus eclipsed Lady Gaga’s opening performance of her new single, Katy Perry’s closing rendition of her latest hit and Kanye West’s artsy set. The 20-year-old even grabbed more attention than Justin Timberlake’s performance with his ‘N Sync band mates.

Cyrus twerked and gyrated, stripped and swayed. She sang, too.

She had a helper at the VMAs: Robin Thicke. After performing her edgy hit, “We Can’t Stop,” she stripped off her outfit to reveal a nude bikini.

She sang the first verse of Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” then grinded on the R&B singer and made suggestive moves with a foam hand.
