Miley Cyrus gave the worldwide television debut performance of her new single “Malibu” at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. It was raw, emotional and beautiful. Understandably, Smilers will probably never be over it.
Evoking the dreamy images of her “Malibu” music video, Miley sang with a backdrop behind her of waves crashing on the shore and balloons blowing in the wind. She looked as heavenly as ever, wearing all-white and gracing the BBMAs stage with her stripped down, powerful vocals.
At the end of the performance, Miley dropped hundreds of balloons on the crowd. She also got emotional, finishing the performance with tears in her eyes.
No surprise, Smilers loved it more than words can really express. Check out some of their reactions!
