Teen pop idol and Hannah Montana superstar Miley Cyrus has had quite the successful year in the spotlight as her vocal career has taken off alongside her hit Disney Channel television series, and the starry-eyed pop princess is currently in the middle of a whirlwind of awards shows and live performances.
Even without Miley Cyrus tickets, fans have undoubtedly seen the vocal wonder perform at live shows and on television, and yesterday was just another day taking care of business for the teenager.
Kicking off her day with a performance on ABC’s Good Morning America, Miley sang a duet with her father Billy Ray Cyrus in New York before traveling to Nashville for the night, where the father/daughter combination presented a trophy at the 42nd Annual CMA Awards show.
Donning an elegant but fun Roberto Cavalli halter gown, a sweeping ponytail and her father at her side, Miley Cyrus made an appearance at the 2008 CMAs while her boyfriend Justin Gaston appeared on stage as Prince Charming during friend and fellow teenage star Taylor Swift’s rendition of her newest single “Love Story.” Cyrus’ cameo at the CMAs is just one awards show on the talented artist’s agenda, as she is also scheduled to perform (along with Swift, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Kanye West.
Rihanna and the Jonas Brothers) at this month’s American Music Awards in Los Angeles. The 36th annual event takes place on Cyrus’ 16th birthday, and there will be no better or more fitting way for Cyrus to ring in her sweet sixteenth than onstage in front of millions of viewers.
Cyrus practically grew up in the spotlight, born to mullet-rocking, “Achy Breaky Heart”-singing country music superstar Billy Ray Cyrus. Miley, born Destiny Hope Cyrus, had a bubbly personality from the beginning, and she was nicknamed Miley as a shortened version of “Smiley,” her family’s moniker for her cheerful disposition as a baby. Miley’s entertainment career began in 2003, as the preteen appeared in an episode of the television show Doc, soon thereafter landing a small role in Tim Burton’s film Big Fish.
