  • Miley Cyrus recreated her iconic music video for "Wrecking Ball" at the end of her performance at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

  • Cyrus performed her latest single, "Midnight Sky," in New York City for the socially distanced awards show.

  • The singer stunned earlier in the night, wearing a Mugler number while walking the show's red carpet.

The ball is back.

For Miley Cyrus's performance of her glam rock-inspired single "Midnight Sky" at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, she paid homage to one of her own popular music videos—the visuals for "Wrecking Ball." Towards the end of her set, she strutted up a staircase where a giant disco ball awaited her, and she hopped atop the massive piece of decor to end on a high note.

Cyrus wore a shimmery slip dress, strappy heels, and layers upon layers of silver jewelry—including a Madonna-esque cross pendant necklace—for her shining moment on stage. Though the performance ended with a nostalgic bang, the bulk of the set featured Cyrus doing was she does best—allowing her powerhouse vocals to take center stage. This year's VMAs marked Cyrus's first major performance since splitting from her boyfriend of less than a year, fellow musician, Cody Simpson.

Cyrus kicked off the ceremony by first serving a major look courtesy of Mugler on the red carpet earlier this evening. The singer wore a sexy, sheer, and sequined number by the French fashion designer which she paired with stiletto heels and a bright bold red lip.
