Miley Cyrus brought her signature sass and honesty to the stage at the 2024 Grammy Awards, but this time, she had a bone to pick with the audience. During her performance of “Flowers” at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on February 4th, the 31-year-old singer couldn’t help but call out the crowd for their lackluster response.
As she belted out the lyrics of her hit song, Miley noticed that the audience wasn’t quite as engaged as she expected. “I can buy myself flowers / Write my name in the sand,” she sang in the first chorus, before playfully admonishing the audience, “Why you acting like you don’t know this song?”
Undeterred by the initial tepid reaction, Miley urged the crowd to join in and sing along. The camera caught the attention of fellow celebrities like Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini, and Chrissy Teigen, who enthusiastically joined in and danced along to the infectious beat of “Flowers.”
But Miley wasn’t done shaking things up. Towards the end of the performance, she took a playful jab at herself and the audience by changing the lyrics to reflect her recent Grammy win. “Started to cry and then remembered: I just won my first Grammy!” she sang, celebrating her victory in the Best Pop Solo Performance category.
Indeed, Miley’s win was a well-deserved triumph, as she beat out stiff competition from artists like Taylor Swift, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo. The Hannah Montana alum’s candid call-out and impromptu lyric change added a memorable touch to her Grammy performance, showcasing her trademark wit and authenticity on music’s biggest stage.
