She decided to give the audience a little ~throwback~ to 2009, with a performance of her hit "Party in the U.S.A." But this time around, Miley gave the song a powerful political message.

miley cyrus officially the best ex act and there's no argument about it


Miley introduced the song with a speech about fighting for equality:

Now I've got one more song for you guys. And I thought it would be perfect for tonight, especially right after "We Can't Stop." Because, you know what I won't stop doing? I won't stop fighting for justice for every single person in this entire fucking place.

"We shouldn't be scared of walking down the street," she told the crowd. "We shouldn't be scared of this violence. We shouldn't be scared of humans against humans."

"It's not a 'Party in the U.S.A.' if we don't have equality, unity, justice, compassion, kindness, opportunity, healthcare, education, non-violence."


"So fuck yeah, it will be a 'Party in the U.S.A.' We'll see it. And if we all fucking come together we'll fucking make sure that it is, because I'm not giving up. We can't stop."

Miley then absolutely slayed a rock rendition of "Party in the U.S.A." The song starts at about 30 seconds into this video:

Words flashed on the giant screen behind her, and she occasionally called them out during the song — including "dreamers," "hope," "justice," "understanding," and "love."
