Miley Cyrus Stuns VMA crowd

Miley Cyrus snatched the throne for the strangest, most provocative performer at this year's VMAs, fitting nicely into the crown for Queen of Obscene, funny hair horns and all.

Miley emerged  in a furry gray leotard with the face of a seemingly-intoxicated teddy bear to perform her single "We Can't Stop." Following the theme of her music video, she was backed up by a gaggle of dancers with the giant teddy bear backpacks, folks in teddy bear suits, and the World's Tallest Burlesque Dancer, Amazon Ashley, who stands at 6'7''.

Living up to her reputation for shamelessly working it, she didn't disappoint as she playfully bounced, popped and thrust through the song that had viewers in a trance.

Once Robin Thicke came out to perform what is probably the song of summer '13, "Blurred Lines," Cyrus shed the fun fur to reveal a nude vinyl bikini. And she just kept twerking like a possessed woman.

Twitter comments on Miley:

"(J)ust watched that Miley Cyrus / teddy bear performance and I think I'm now legally required to put myself on some kind of registry," tweeted Time magazine's TV critic, James Poniewozik.

"i am still trying to recover from the miley cyrus performance," posted another viewer.
Derek Blasberg was more enthused, tweeting that he was "obsessed with @MileyCyrus's performance at the VMA's. It was like a karaoke party at the Playboy mansion. In the 90's. In platform sneakers."

Billboard's Editorial Director, Bill Werde, thinks Cyrus' show was right on target with the direction she's taking her brand -- she is, after all, no longer the teen Disney star she once was.

"Guys, Miley Cyrus is an all-star hot mess for a hot mess pop moment," Werde tweeted. "She doesn't care what u think & that's her brand. & she just delivered."
