Miley Cyrus has landed in Tampa where she’ll perform at the TikTok Tailgate pregame show at Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
The 28-year-old crooner gave her fans a look at her performance preparation, getting a bit cheeky in true Miley fashion during soundcheck.
Rocking daisy duke jeans shorts and a retro jersey style T-shirt, Cyrus excitedly wrote ‘SOUNDCHECK & then GAME ON!’ while flashing a glimpse of her derriere.

Miley went all out with her colorful stage which featured a hypnotic swirl with mylar heart balloons, and nods to icons like Dolly Parton.
The set featured an oversized vintage megaphone with Miley’s name on it and most predominantly a funky pink pool table with fringe detail that she posed on while rocking heeled black boots.
A video loop playing in the background showed Miley holding a football, and another photo posted to the TikTok official Instagram page had her in a latex leotard with the number ’96’ on it as she held pom poms.
Seemingly her costume for the performance, the look featured studded shin guards and knee high socks – her take on a collegiate look.
