What We Know About Miley Cyrus' Performance At The Super Bowl

Singer Miley Cyrus is slated to make her Super Bowl debut in February 2021 and fans of the star are wondering what to expect from the eccentric artist's performance. Since her 2013 album Bangerz, the former child star has broken away from her Disney persona past. She got her start as an actress after watching her father star on the sitcom Doc following his "Achy Breaky Heart" fame in the early 90s, Hello! reported. After a few small roles alongside her dad on the show, as well as snagging the role of Big Ruthie in 2003's Big Fish, Cyrus went on to land the lead role in Disney Channel's Hannah Montana

Through the success of the show, Cyrus released her first two albums that topped the Billboard charts, while also working to transition from her child star days. It was not until her fourth album Bangerz where Cyrus fully shed her Hannah Montana persona by cutting her hair, wearing edgier fashion and twerking in her music video for "We Can't Stop," via Biography. She took her new bad girls image to the next level with her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2013, where she twerked all over married singer Robin Thicke and left the audience completely jaw-dropped. She followed it up by going completely nude for her "Wrecking Ball" music video. The move brought her first U.S. single to the top of the pop charts and earned her the Video of the Year award at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.

Miley Cyrus will make her Super Bowl debut in 2021

Since Miley Cyrus' 2013 transition into a pop/rock star, fans have become accustomed to her constant evolution and change as an artist. In January 2021, it was announced that the "Party in the U.S.A." singer would be headlining the NFL TikTok Tailgate at Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay, Variety reported. With it being the first Super Bowl taking place amidst the pandemic, the "NFL TikTok Tailgate, along with all Super Bowl-related activities, will be conducted safely," a statement for the event read. The goal of the TikTok-sponsored pregame event is "to invite the world into the league's premier Super Bowl pregame celebration at the stadium."

Additionally, the Tailgate will be attended by 7,500 vaccinated health care heroes that were invited by the NFL to attend Super Bowl LV. Unlike other Super Bowls, where swarms of fans would flock to the city hosting the annual football game, in 2021, the league said that around 22,000 fans would be allowed to attend the game, with the 7,500 vaccinated health care workers being able to attend the Super Bowl for free. Cyrus' latest project was her November 2020 release, Plastic Hearts. Fans are expecting her to perform new music from the album, as well as some of her past hits.
