Miley Cyrus' SNL Appearance A Mixed Bag

(Radio.com) After more than a month of media proliferation so impressive it will be studied in public relations classes for years to come, Miley Cyrus' Saturday Night Live gig as host and musical guest has finally arrived. And, typical of most SNL events these days, it was a mixed bag. In keeping with the spirit of Miley, let's reduce this to headlines:

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. The real takeaway from these awkward few minutes of tongue poking and posing is the reminder that the Disney Channel started all of this.

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. Lately her music has taken a backseat to her image, but what I think we've all forgotten is that, as seen in her performance of "Wrecking Ball," girl can sing. I'm no lover of Miley's music, but this performance sold me on the strength of this song.

High School Talk Show Sketches are Still Awful, Miley Kind of Looks like Justin Bieber?: Miley also continued the SNL tradition of having at least one sketch that should have been dead on arrival (and then burned, and then thrown in the ocean), and this time it was "Girlfriends Talk Show." Aside from being just painful to watch as are most of SNL's strangely numerous high school-based talk show sketches I also had the odd realization that Miley sometimes really looks like Justin Bieber. And, even though Miley's monologue promised no twerking, she started gyrating for a split second before catching herself. 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
