Miley Cyrus hosted "Saturday Night Live" on Oct. 5, also serving as the episode's musical guest.
Cyrus, who parodied Michele Bachmann, Scarlett Johansson, and even herself during the show, first gave an emotional performance of her No. 1 hit, "Wrecking Ball." The 20-year-old singer wore a black jersey and sang the track with a live band and backup singers.
Later in the show, she sang "We Can't Stop." The single, which served as Cyrus' introduction to her latest album, "BANGERZ," was performed by Cyrus with the accompaniment of an acoustic guitar. She offered a more stripped-down version of the track, standing in contrast to her over-the-top music video to "We Can't Stop."
Cyrus will officially release her fourth studio album on Oct. 8. "BANGERZ," which features "Wrecking Ball" and "We Can't Stop," has been streaming on iTunes ahead of its release. It also includes collaborations with Britney Spears, Nelly, and Big Sean.
The night of her "SNL" performance, Cyrus tweeted photos from the set and after-party. Check out Cyrus' tweets below.
