Miley Cyrus trolled the AMAs with her ‘Wrecking Ball’ performance

Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” performance at the 2013 American Music Awards tended toward the minimal, but not because of what she wasn’t wearing this time.

The young star donned a cat-themed two-piece and sang a straight-forward rendition of the “Bangerz” hit, and behind her was a giant kitten lip-syncing the song while being projected into space.

Seriously. That’s it. Why, LOLCAT? In the words of Childish Gambino: Because the internet.

Cyrus showed no wink in her eye, and actually appeared quite emotional toward the end of the powerful tear-jerker, while the semi-static image of a cat peered thousands of yards into our soul. For such a massive troll, we even forgive her for missing a beat.

Cyrus hasn’t exacly been a wallflower at awards shows lately, including her last stop at the MTV EMAs where she lit and smoked a joint on stage.
