Good news for fans of twerking: Miley Cyrus is set to perform at this year’s American Music Awards. The singer was one of the first names to be confirmed for the upcoming telecast, along with the band Imagine Dragons, although more names are set to be announced in the run up to the telecast. Unfortunately, Cyrus didn’t wind up with any nominations herself, but that probably won’t stop her from being the most talked-about artist at the AMAs.
There’s been no word yet as to whether Cyrus will attempt to top her infamous VMAs performance, but personally, we’re hoping that she decides to strip everything down (not like that) and showcase her voice over her wacky onstage antics. Everyone will be comparing the two performances anyway, so it would be cool to see her do the opposite of what everyone’s expecting and pass up some of the typical Cyrus-concert spectacle and let her music speak for her.
Or, you know, she could ignore all of that and twerk on a giant wrecking ball with an army of Beetlejuice backup dancers while ripping up a photo of Sinead O’Connor and licking a sledgehammer. Whichever direction she chooses, her performance certainly won’t be boring. And she’ll probably be wearing very little clothing, but that pretty much goes without saying.
The 2013 American Music Awards nominees include Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, and Justin Timberlake. The show will be broadcast on Novermber 24 on ABC.
