With an air of candidness, Cyrus shared her sentiments on finally being recognised by the Grammys after years of toil.

“No shade, but I’ve been doing this for 20 years. This is my first time being taken seriously at the Grammys.


I’ve had a hard time figuring out what the measurement is there,” she said.

She questioned the criteria that determined her prior absence from the limelight, according to E News.

“And if you want to talk, like, impact on culture, then where the f— was I?

This is not about arrogance. I am proud of myself,” Cyrus added.

Taking the audience on a trip, Cyrus channelled the legendary Tina Turner with her bedazzled silver outfit and choreography.

She infused the atmosphere with energy reminiscent of Turner’s iconic performances.

With a playful jest, Miley Cyrus teased the crowd for their apparent amnesia.

She exclaimed, “Why are y’all acting like y’all don’t know this song?”


She then integrated her Grammy win into the lyrics of her hit single, “I just won my first Grammy.”
