Miley Cyrus: AMAs Performance Video - Watch Now!

Miley Cyrus performs on stage at the 2010 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 21) in Los Angeles.

The 17-year-old singer performed the song “Love and Forgiveness” off her album Can’t Be Tamed. She originally was going to sing “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” but made a last minute switch.

Miley walked the red carpet earlier in the evening in a Marchesa dress.

    I didn’t recognize her wearing so many clothes.

  • anna

    I’m sorry but that was just terrible. She’s done better, much, much better.

  • http://justjared anymouse

    that was pretty sad, thought she had a better voice than that, must be the stress. and what was she wearing? why doesn’t she want to be 17? or 18? what is wrong with that age? she needs to enjoy being a teenager, and stop trying to be older than she is…’ll get there soon enough Miley.

  • Go Ask Alice

    Miley came on after Enrique Inglesis and Pitbull.
    They were rocking,high energy and with no real stage props,dancers, or pyro.
    Then you had Miley. Hum-drum Miley.

    Bad choice to put her on at that time.
    Better time would have to Miley,Justin BabyBeiber and TalyorSwift on all at one time so people could take one backroom break…not miss any of the show.

    Train Wreck in the worst way. Was she dressed as Stevie Nicks?

  • JC

    I didn’t watch but let me guess… sucked?

  • jack

    she actuallly did GOOD

  • Yawn

    I had to stop watching at the 25 sec point – painful as always…

  • African Queen

    For a fleeting moment, a very brief one, she reminded me of Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac). She is still young. Her voice, which is basically pretty good and strong, has a lot of room to grow and improve. I hope she is taking weekly vocal coaching lessons. If not, she should. ALL singers should.

    @PopCultureMngr: LOL. I SWEAR when I wrote my reply, I hadn’t seen yours.

  • anh

    i love it!!!! Love you Miley!

  • Peg

    Yeah I thought that the minute I saw her. She’s doing a Stevie Nicks impersonation. Didin’t help a bit though.

  • Ms Barleo Gaga Fan

  • jo

    That was straight up painful to watch.

  • jo

    That was straight up painful to watch.

  • jen

    i almost felt bad for her for a hot second while i was watching this, and then i changed the channel because it was just too painful. this was an embarassingly bad performance from her….completely tone deaf this girl.

  • zzzz

    Mindbendingly bad, I am losing faith as I listen to these AMA videos. Where did all the talent go?

  • Jen

    WTF! Horrible! What happened?!!

  • Shelly

    I’m sorry but her voice is really mediocre. With singers like Pink and Christina Aguilera performing at the same event, you can see the difference between great voices and Miley’s voice.

  • tara

    Pink and Christina put Miley and Taylor to shame. Tonight made it glaringly clear that you no longer need talent to be in the music industry…i’m looking at you Miley, Taylor and Katy!

    At the end of the day, I think that Miley is neither the best singer, the best dancer, the best looking etc…she is an all-rounder and that is part of the reason why she is so successful. She might not be the best at one thing but she is generally good at everything and hence is a good performer.
    In saying that, this was a really poor performance on her part unfortunately for her though I guess she is probably a bit distracted at the moment with everything that is going on with her family.

  • F


    TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!!
    She is not the best singer in the world, but she CAN entertain. I also think this is a painfull song for her to sing at this point of her life now. Her family is breaking appart, and now it’s over with liam, it’s a hard thing!
    My parents devorced when I was 9 years old and than you don’t really know what that means, but when your 17/18 you realize how big the impact actually is!
    I still think she is a great performer.

  • ColdChicken

    Wow, I thought she had so much potential. Wtf happened!?

  • Dee

    Miley starst like any other entertainers.. dressing like a crap ! i used to love Christina vocal ever..but then i dont like the way she dresses, specially on her music video showing lots of skin, that’s all.. you see all those singers on music video.. that’s what they do, wearing minimum clothes, bare.. naked if they can ..

  • jen

    what is up with her face – its huge!!!!!!

  • jaye

    She doesn’t have a great voice, she’s 17, it might get better, but she does use what she has well. After she got over the first part it was decent.
    The real talent is still there, but it’s been overshadowed, by teens who are more into the superficial rather than substance. These entertainers are on par with their audience as far as age is concerned. Since a lot of teens see them as a role models or having a life they’d like to have, they support them by buying their records, merchandise and watching whatever program or movie they have. Some also think that through their songs, these teen celebrities know how THEY feel.
    Oh, did I forget to say hormones? Has to be hormones to explain why anyone thinks the Jonas Brother are HOT.

  • lulux93

    Ok, don’t get me wrong ’cause I love Miley and her Can’t be tamed album BUT this performance was really awful ! She’s a good singer and her voice is really special but I didn’t even get at the end of the vid.

  • Christian

    The majority of these comments saying she can’t sing, I highly doubt you sound any better. Compared to Cyrus most of you are pure shit.

  • BJ

    Her singing voice sucks. She doesn’t seem to be able to modulate between and high and low notes. Her singing voice is very flat. It stays on one tempo.

  • KC

    She’s definitely bigger than before, but FAR from fat? What is fat to you, a size 6???? She looks like she has a gut…possibly pregnant or break-up weight. My husband and I agreed idiots will start calling her fat after that performance…you proved us right! Get a life and post your pic before you call people names!!! And if she was fat, what now?

  • Dank

    Was she trying to pull of some Steve Nicks stuff? Fail, completely. That was rough.

  • Dank

    I feel so sorry for the people saying she actually did good. Seriously, you are tone deaf if you think this is good. You probably think Taylor Swift has a great voice too.

  • Jaz

    Ok. Sorry. Her voice is just…not good to listen to live. Sorry.
    It really feels like she’s shouting. It kind of hard to get the meaning of the song when the singer kind of sings it poorly. Not trying to hate, just saying my opinion.

    The music kind of sounds….well……gay…..Sorry.(again)

    Probably Miley’s weakest performance.

    What is she wearing?

    Slowly it feels like Miley is fading away from the world. She might not be so famous in the future that’s what it feels like.

    Again Sorry but the music sounds……..
    It’s kind of hard to see her as an artiest if she’s doing music she doesn’t even like or listen to.

  • Jokergurl

    She totally just flat lined the energy that Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull had going, Taylor Swift was even dancing to it. Then it’s Miley’s turn zzzzzzzzz, she sounded scratchy and flat.

  • Sparks

    Whatever they say, Miley was awesome!

    Such a beautiful song.
