Miley Cyrus Spoofs Government Shutdown, VMA Performance on Saturday Night Live
Miley Cyrus did plenty of singing on Saturday Night Live this week, but thankfully left the twerking at home for the most part. Acting as both host and musical guest, Cyrus skewered the government shutdown in one sketch and parodied her infamous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in another. She also performed her single "Wrecking Ball" (with clothes on) and an acoustic version of "We Can't Stop." Check out highlights from SNL below. How do you think Cyrus did as host?
