Miley Cyrus lets out a 'Rebel Yell' at 'VH1 Divas'
A punked-up Miley made a grand entrance by crowd-surfing her way to the flame-engulfed 'Divas' stage for her rockin' performance
(Yahoo!) - When VH1 first announced the lineup for this year's "VH1 Divas" show, it was definitely a one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-others scenario. How on earth would Miley Cyrus, one of the night's scheduled performers, ever hold her own against vocal powerhouses like Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Keri Hilson, Natasha Bedingfield, Jordin Sparks, Melanie Fiona, Ledisi, and Adam Lambert?
Nonetheless, Miley's performance turned out to be one of the most rockin' highlights of Sunday evening's already highlight-laden "VH1 Divas" broadcast. And the fact that the former Hannah Montana pulled off singing Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" makes this even harder to fathom.
Performing live Sunday at Los Angeles's Shrine Auditorium, a punked-up Miley (rocking a peroxided, sheared hairdo not unlike Billy Idol's circa 1983, not to mention enough leather and metal spikes to make even Billy blanch) made a grand entrance by crowd-surfing her way to the flame-engulfed "Divas" stage. And then...she proceeded to give the fist-pumping, crotch-grabbing, pyro-blasting performance of a lifetime.
However, showing her softer side, Miley dedicated the wild spectacle to a fallen furry friend, shouting, "That was for you, Lila!"--a tribute to her 2-year-old, Yorkie-mix dog, who died on Wednesday.
