On Friday night during her live NBC special “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party” in Miami, Florida, the singer had a small on-stage blunder when her top broke mid-performance.
Cyrus performed several of her own music for the audience, starting with “Midnight Sky” followed by “We Can’t Stop” and her hit “Party in the U.S.A.” While she made it through the first two songs with no issue, during the very first line of her 2009-hit, the straps on Cyrus’ top gave and broke on the singer.
Cyrus emerged from backstage donning a micro metallic skirt and a coordinating slinky crop top to ring in the new year with her co-host, Pete Davidson, and the night’s performers, including Jack Harlow and Saweetie.
The 29-year-old was already holding her top when she started the song but was barely able to finish the first line before viewers could see that one of the strap’s had popped off.
Cyrus laughed it off and was a total pro by quickly turning her back to the crowd — which likely helped NBC execs breathe a sigh of relief.
She even continued singing as she strutted topless towards the back of the stage for a quick change.
Cyrus, being the lproshe is, caught the top before it slipped off entirely and kept a hand across her chest. Seconds later — and while still singing the song — she turned her back to to the audience and discarded the remnants of the top before walking backstage.
The 29-year-old was only off-stage for a few seconds while her band and back-up singers handled it from there. By the end of the chorus, Cyrus re-emerged from backstage without missing a beat, donning an oversized red blazer that she had worn earlier in the night with another ensemble.
“Everybody’s definitely looking at me now,” she quipped, slightly amending the lyrics to “Party in the USA” as a reference to the wardrobe malfunction as the crowd cheered.
“I’m still in the most clothes that I’ve ever worn on stage,” she added, seemingly unfazed by the incident.
The televised event was co-hosted by “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson, who joined Cyrus for a performance of Will Smith’s “Miami” during the show.
