Miley Cyrus took the stage at the Billboard Music Awards tonight for the first-ever televised performance of her new single, "Malibu."
The powerful, earnest performance perfectly represented the new stage in her career. Old Miley wore elaborate costumes and performed wild dances at awards shows, but New Miley wore a simple white ensemble and let her vocals command the stage.
The sweet track, which is famously about Miley's fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, even brought her to tears on stage.
Need tissues. So many tissues.
