Miley Cyrus is joined on stage by icons Billy Idol and Joan Jett during TikTok Tailgate pregame show

Miley Cyrus showcased her rock n’ roll rebel persona on Sunday afternoon as she headlined the TikTok Tailgate pregame show at Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida.

The 28-year-old singer, who performed for a crowd of vaccinated health care workers, was joined on stage by music icons Billy Idol and Joan Jett during her set.

Cyrus belted out the lyrics to some of her latest and greatest hits in a skimpy, vinyl cheerleading uniform, complete with zipper detailing and metallic fuchsia accents.

The peppy get-up consisted of a crop top with criss-cross straps that had ‘FTW’ plastered across the front of it in bold, sparkly fuchsia lettering, as well as a pleated mini skirt.

Miley also had on a set of matching knee pads and a pair of black platform boots with silver buckles on the sides. 

The Hannah Montana alum’s slender wrists were decked out in countless chainlink bracelets that coordinated with the rivets on her uniform and the antique rings on her fingers.

Rocking her newly signature bleach blonde mullet, Miley let her natural waves frame her face and drew attention to her ice blue peepers with a generous amount of charcoal toned eyeshadow.

The We Can’t Stop songstress has been putting in work at the gym the past several weeks in preparation for her highly anticipated pregame show performance.

And based on the enviably toned nature of her 5foot5inch physique, all of Cyrus’ hard work paid off. 

Never one to miss an opportunity to make a grand entrance, Miley road out on stage atop a patriotic-themed motorcycle.

Resting behind the pop star was an elaborate set complete with a giant Miley-themed photo collage, lots of ultra reflective glitter, and a bevy of bedazzled props.

There was also a giant, clear sphere packed to the brim with multi-colored gum balls positioned next to the Plastic Hearts hitmaker’s drummer.

Idol, sporting a flaming red tee, black trousers, and a leather jacket, collaborated with Cyrus on the track Night Crawling, which is featured on the starlet’s recently released record Plastic Hearts.

Miley wrapped her arm around the punk rocker as they sang along to the hit’s suggestive lyrics and bopped to its infectious beat.

At one point, the Can’t Be Tamed songstress paid homage to her infamous 2013 MTV Video Music Award’s performance by rocking out with a giant fuchsia foam finger.

Jett, a person a personal hero of Cyrus’, not only lent her vocal talents to the occasion, but also her guitar playing skills.

Although Miley was meant to be the focal point, Joan undeniably turned heads as she strummed the strings of her guitar in a sexy black sequin bodysuit.

Miley and the 62-year-old former member of The Runaways performed their collaborative track Bad Karma, which is also featured on Plastic Hearts.

For her stage time with Jett, Cyrus ditched her cheerleading outfit and reemerged as a femme football player, complete with a pink and white jersey, shoulder pads, and a pair of skin-tight pants. 

During her lengthy set, Miley performed the lead single of Plastic Hearts, titled Midnight Sky, as well as the melancholy track High and her collaborative tracks with Jett and Idol.

She also treated her audience to covers of Nine Inch Nail’s Head Like a Hole, her godmother Dolly Parton’s hit song Jolene, the Blondie hit Heart of Glass, and Joan Jett’s rock anthem Bad Reputation.

At one point, Miley paused to give a shout-out to Britney Spears, who is back in the spotlight with the release on FX on Hulu of the controversial documentary Framing Britney Spears. 

‘We love Britney,’ she said as she added the Toxic hitmaker’s name to the lyrics of her song Party in the U.S.A. 

Providing even more nostalgia, Cyrus threw it back to her Bangerz era by belting out We Can’t Stop, as well as the post-Liam Hemsworth breakup song Wrecking Ball.

The daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus got a bit choked up during her Wrecking Ball, which inspired her to take a moment to talk with the audience about the emotion behind the song.

‘Singing that song, Wrecking Ball about feeling completely broken and shattered … everyone suffering is different, even everyone’s threshold of pain … I wear a lot of glitter and I wear a lot of armor and I also wear my heart on my sleeve, and it gets broken a lot,’ she said.
