Too often, the showmanship of today’s pop stars gets in the way of their undeniable talent. Don’t get us wrong: We love a live show filled with bombast and music videos that push boundaries. But it’s the live performances that tone the bombast back and truly inspire. Too often is Miley Cyrus accused of being untalented, a bad singer, and poor role model. Many long for the “old Miley” because the “new Miley” isn’t the same. Well, an artist has every right to do what they want and change how they see fit. (Look to Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz as a prime example.) Cyrus’ days of hair extensions might be over, but the talent she possesses is still very much the same as it was five or more years ago. So as a reminder, let’s look back at 10 performances of hers that really wowed the crowd and reminded the haters of the talent they wished would come back. See for yourself in the pages ahead.
