Miley Cyrus New Year's Eve Performance: She Came, She Twerked, She Conquered

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus closed out 2013 with one last memorable performance from Times Square Tuesday night, and managed to stay mostly clothed in the process.

With temperatures in New York City well below freezing and Cyrus tweeting about battling a bad “cough/cold” beforehand, she was up against it.

“If I can just get thru tonight I can have a nice lil break,” she wrote prior to the show, but like any pro's pro, she put on her gold crop top and went to work.

Miley Cyrus' performance on New Year's Rockin' Eve, which took place about 20 minutes before midnight on ABC, began with an attempt to "#GetItRight."

Her vocals on that hashtagged track sounded a bit pitchy, but fans briefly got to see her grind on a backup dancer half her height, so there's that.

Then the "Wrecking Ball" came through, and she owned the stage.

As she broke down the proverbial walls of the crowd, one of the biggest songs of 2013 became a giant sing-a-long with fans who know it by heart by now.

The 21-year-old singer quipped to host Ryan Seacrest that her shimmering gold outfit and fur coat marked "the most clothes I’ve been in in 2013."

You can blame/thank the Northeast weather for that. Either way, the Year of Miley Cyrus came to an end with a shiver as much as with a bang(erz).

How will the provocative, controversial star top herself in 2014? We can only wait and see, THGers. We can only wait and see. Happy New Year!
