Teen singer Miley Cyrus shocked fans by simulating a lesbian kiss during a performance on Britain’s Got Talent. The 17-year-old US star pretended to lock lips with one of her female dancers during a performance of her new single Can’t Be Tamed on Britain’s Got Talent yesterday, June 3rd.
Cyrus was dressed in fishnet tights and a tight-fitting black leather outfit as she strutted her stuff on stage in front of judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan. She didn’t go all the way with the dancer as she just pretended to kiss her and their lips didn’t actually touch.
After her performance, Cyrus admitted to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly that she was “a little nervous. There’s so many talented people here tonight.” Cyrus has come under fire in recent months for a series of raunchy antics that critics say paint a bad picture for her tween audience: Performing a lap-dance at a video shoot; dancing on a stripper pole on TV and stripping down in semi-provocative photos with pals, among others.
Other stars who have performed this week during the semi-finals of the show include Alicia Keys and Pixie Lott.
