With a cool demeanor, Miley Cyrus gracefully dealt with a wardrobe malfunction during her New Year’s Eve performance. As she belted out the lyrics to her popular 2009 song, “Party in the U.S.A.”, she even changed up a few words to acknowledge the attention she was receiving from the crowd.
Miley Cyrus, the popular singer, had an eventful New Year’s Eve on her NBC special named “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party.” During her performance, after singing her hit number “We Can’t Stop” and moving on to “Party in the U.S.A.,” she had a wardrobe malfunction where she lost her top. Despite this, she quickly improvised and changed her attire, all while continuing her set with the help of her backup singers and band. She was seen holding onto her top as she sang the opening lyrics of the song before making her way backstage.
During the initial chorus of her song “Angels Like You,” Miley Cyrus made a comeback on stage wearing a red blazer that she had previously worn during the event. She joked about being the center of attention and referenced the lyrics of a 2009 song. In between singing, she also mentioned that this was the most covering outfit she had ever worn for a performance.
After the conclusion of the program, Cyrus expressed her gratitude to everyone in attendance and those watching from home. She emphasized that the show was about resilience and making the best out of any situation. Cyrus believes that this attitude should be carried into the New Year as a positive outlook. The special was filmed in Miami amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the omicron surge. Cyrus reassured viewers that the entire crowd was vaccinated, as safety is a top priority. To end her remarks, Cyrus wished everyone a happy and healthy 2022 and thanked them for making the ultimate party possible. The program aired live on NBC and live-streamed on Peacock.
Miley Cyrus’ New Year’s Eve bash was brought to life by Lorne Michaels, the mastermind behind Saturday Night Live, and co-hosted by Pete Davidson. Along with television producer Lindsay Shookus, they also served as executive producers for the event. Jen Neal, the Executive Vice President of Live Events, Specials, and E! News for NBCUniversal, expressed excitement for the upcoming evening of entertainment in a statement last month. The star-studded celebration promises to be an unforgettable way to ring in 2022.
This year’s NBC New Year’s Eve coverage had a unique twist – for the first time since 2004, Carson Daly wasn’t the host (excluding 2017 when it was cancelled for an NFL broadcast).
