ATLANTA — Miley Cyrus went twerk-less on stage but the pop star still put on a risque performance that seemed to please the crowd.

It was a lot of activity onstage during Cyrus’ performance at 96.1’s annual Jingle Ball concert Wednesday night in Atlanta. There was a dancing dwarf, a woman dressed in a tall green Christmas tree costume and Santa Clause impersonator prancing across the stage with a bottle in a brown paper bag.

Wearing a red leotard, the 21-year-old Cyrus often pulled close to her backup dancers, thrusting herself upon them. Santa walked up behind her danced on Cyrus a couple of times, but the moments only lasted a few seconds.

Cyrus performed some of her hits from “Party in the USA,” ‘’We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball.”

She also slowed down the tempo, singing Lana Del Ray’s “Summertime Sadness.”

But unlike her previous stint, Cyrus held off from twerking onstage. She reportedly gyrated on Santa during her Jingle Ball performance in Los Angeles.

Cyrus was the final act in a night that also featured performances from Robin Thicke, Pitbull, Flo Rida, Travie McCoy, Fifth Harmony, Armin Van Buuren and Bonnie McKee.

Thicke was one of the first to take the stage, performing only three songs including his hit single, “Blurred Lines.” Pitbull went on before Cyrus, putting on a show with “Don’t Stop the Party,” ‘’Feel This Moment” and “I Know You Want Me.”

Arguably one of the best performances was Flo Rida, who performed several of his songs bringing out rapper Gorilla Zoe. They both tossed a large stash of cash onto the crowd.

Flo Rida also brought out Santa, but a different one than Cyrus’ version. The bulky Flo Rida sat on the shoulders of Santa, who carried the rapper through the crowd during his performance of “Wild Ones.”

Unpublished

ONE THING IS FOR SURE....IF MILEY HAS THE MEDIA REPORTING ON EVERY BUMP,GRIND AND THRUST SHE DOES IN HER PERFORMANCE, THEN SHE HAS DONE HER JOB AND DONE IT WELL.
LIKE HER OR NOT, SHE'S THE LATEST TOUR DE FORCE ON THE POP MUSIC SCENE AND LIKE HER PREDECESSORS, SHE'S MAKING MONEY HAND OVER FIST AND TAKING HER LUMPS FOR IT....CONTRAST HER WITH CARRIE UNDERWOOD , WHO DID THE LIVE "SOUND OF MUSIC", DID A SIMPLY WONDERFUL JOB, BUT YET CAUGHT GRIEF FROM PEOPLE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY-SHE'S NOT AN ACTRESS,(DUH-NO KIDDING), SHE'S NOT JULIE ANDREWS(AGAIN,DUH-NO KIDDING)....BUT SHE PERFORMED A COMPLETLEY WHOLESOME,FUN,BEAUTIFUL SHOW... TOTALLY OUT OF HER COMFORT RANGE, AND STILL GOT BEAT UP OVER IT.....DAMNED IF YOU DO,DAMNED IF YOU DON'T.

Risque'??? After everybody on

Risque'??? After everybody on earth has seen her grab her tootie and make gestures-there's just not much to top that and it gets boring after awhile. I guess she could grab her butt cheeks and shoot fire out her buttocks like that Keno Goat Kevin. I guess that would top her past shenanigans. The things that pass for entertainment are an enigma.

Evidently she cannot make it on musical talent alone.

I don't think her moves are

I don't think her moves are asking for "help from drugs" . But good manners prevents me from making any comments about coitus.

Seems many of these TV Pop

Seems many of these TV Pop teens like Miley, Selena Gomez, really don't have that much talent. Even though the Monkees were a TV pop group they were talented-esp. Mike Nesmith who produced, made music, created the music video.

What about cries of

What about cries of discrimination against "little persons". Seems she is using the dwarf like the Racist Governor Candidate Homer Stokes in O Brother Were Art Thou.
