Miley Cyrus' SNL Appearance A Mixed Bag
Miley Pokes Tongue at VMA performance, Confronts Hannah Montana past: The cold-open this week was a flash-forward to a homeless Kenan Thompson in the year 2045, expounding on the fact that Miley's VMA awards show performance caused the partial government shutdown, which in turn caused the End of Days.

Miley Proves She can Still Sing, Wears Oversized 'POISON' Jersey: The parts of the show that will be least talked about will probably be Miley's performances, and that's a shame.

I'm no lover of Miley's music, but this performance sold me on the strength of this song.

And, maybe that's the scariest reveal here: Her go-to dance move, even when playing a high schooler, is twerking. more on this story
