Miley Cyrus remains a trending topic after her rocking night hosting NBC’s New Year’s Eve special in Miami. Toward the end of the special, the “Party In the USA” singer suffered a wardrobe malfunction right after the clock struck 12. As Cyrus performed a medley of her songs on live TV during her highly anticipated Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party special, the straps holding her top onto her torso broke, making the top fall. The pop star didn’t miss a beat.
Cyrus recovered seamlessly, pinning the top to her chest with her arm and hand to keep the top from falling down while still singing and dancing. She turned her back to the crowd and cameras as the top began to completely fall off. Cyrus cat-walked backstage, all while continuing to sing live. After a brief pause while her band continued to play, she reemerged with a red blazer she wore earlier in the night. But another malfunction would soon follow.
Twitter users noted that she suffered a full slip even with the blazer on. She was bare under the blazer which allowed for the exposure. Still, she continued the performance. Cyrus even made a joke about it, saying, “I’m still in the most clothes that I’ve ever worn on stage,” while continuing with the show. Social media users enjoyed her professionalism.
A true professional
She didn’t “suffer.” Girl didn’t miss a beat or skip a t** and STILL delivered. https://t.co/C96GDIEtX8

A new attitude
Miley Cyrus calling it and just tearing her top off on live TV and making it work like an absolute bad bitch is the exact energy I want in 2022 #MileysNewYearsEveParty
