Miley Cyrus takes Atlanta

Who else would open a concert by going down a giant tongue slide? What other artist would twerk constantly and roll around in money? None other than the southern belle, Miley Cyrus. While she does seem like a country singer gone wrong, Miley revisited her country roots by wearing cowboy boots for 90 percent of the show and performing an acoustic set featuring multiple country songs. Is it a show we would recommend for a middle schooler? Not so much. Miley did put on a very racy show overall with revealing outfits and vulgar language. However, if you are old enough to go without holding your mommy’s hand, then a Miley Cyrus concert is the perfect way to spend your “Turn Up Tuesday.”

Throughout the show, Miley sang every song on Bangerz and covered Bob Dylan’s “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go,” Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness,” Coldplay’s “The Scientist,” and Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” Throughout the show Miley Cyrus displayed uncommon ways to perform a song. For example, how many make-out cams(no not a kiss cam) do you see at a concert? During the song “Adore You,” Miley not only told every audience member to make out with someone, she encouraged everyone to use as much tongue as possible. She made a grand exit by riding off the stage on a giant hotdog while singing “Someone Else,” but then she returned to sing her most popular songs on the album, “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop.” Just when everyone thought the show was over, Miley returned in a red and blue outfit with a wig to perform “Party in the USA.”

Overall the concert was an experience of its own. Even if you don’t like Miley, it was still a show worth watching. While she may be controversial, she knows how to put on an unforgettable performance. Without a doubt Miley is on the pathway to becoming the future “Entertainer of the Year.”
