How Miley Cyrus is breaking tradition with her MTV VMA 2020 performances


Singer Miley Cyrus is one of the performers for the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards. She has made waves for her shocking and viral moments on stage at the awards show in the past. Here’s why Cyrus’ involvement in the 2020 event marks a change from a previously established pattern.

Miley Cyrus Made a Statement With Her First VMAs Performance

Although she had attended the awards ceremony as a nominee and presenter in previous years, Cyrus made her MTV VMA debut in 2013. First, she sang her song, “We Can’t Stop”. Then she undressed and singer Robin Thicke joined her on stage for her song “Blurred Lines,” in what quickly became the most talked about moment of the night.

The impact of the impact on Cyrus’ performance was felt everywhere. Many parents of children who adored the artist for his role in the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana were outraged, and Cyrus discovered that she has a solid platform on which she can make a difference. Meanwhile, MTV has learned that the singer is in for a big draw for VMAs.

She returned as the host of the awards show

Cyrus attended the VMAs in 2014, where she received the top award: Video of the Year for her single “Wrecking Ball”. But she only returned as an artist the following year, when she took the event by storm as the host. Cyrus had several costume changes and more viral moments, including his exchange with Nicki Minaj.

In addition to all of the above, the artist closed the evening with an unreleased song, “Dooo It! This performance was even bigger than that of 2013 and featured the group The Flaming Lips and the contestants of Course de dragsters de RuPaul. Cyrus also announced his latest album, Miley Cyrus and her dead Petz, was free online.

She also performed at shows in 2017 and 2019

Cyrus has performed twice at the MTV VMAs since his animated concert. She sang the title song and the second single from her album Younger now at the 2017 awards show. Although still a very colorful performance (in more than one way), it marked a decidedly different phase of her career, as she leaned into her country roots.

Then, in 2019, Cyrus hit the theaters. She attended as a nominee, but, at the last minute, MTV announced the singer would perform her standalone single, “Slide Away,” which she dropped days earlier. Cyrus ditched his usual dancers and colors for a touching vocal performance.

At this year’s event, Cyrus will cover a recently released single. On August 14, the artist released his first solo song since “Slide Away”, titled “Midnight Sky”. And if the flashy music video for the disco-pop track means anything, his VMA performance will be a comeback.

Cyrus has been open to doing things differently this time around, and the mere fact that she’s performing at the 2020 VMAs is proof of that. There’s a pattern above: she performs every two years in the service of an upcoming album. Cyrus breaks that this year with “Midnight Sky”.
