Miley Cyrus was surprised with a throwback video of her Hannah Montana audition tape—and she didn't even cringe or squirm or anything. In fact, she appeared to enjoy it as much as we did, describing the unearthed footage as "a gem."

The 24-year-old singer was promoting her new single Malibu (opens in new tab) at Radio Disney when she was shown the archive clip of her 11-year-old self impressively belting out a song titled We're Going to the Beach.

During the clip a very young Miley sings a line about a bikini at which the older Miley quipped: "Always a little controversial, from the beginning."

She then pointed out: "By the way, my T-shirt says 'I should have my own TV show.' That is so funny. That is crazy. That is a jewel. That is a gem." In the video, Miley is asked about that very shirt before she confidently announces "It's going to happen."

And obviously, it did.
