Every performance Miley Cyrus does of “Wrecking Ball” is significantly different than the last. On Sunday, the singer appeared on UK’s The X-Factor, where she belted out the hit in atop a sand dune, wearing a slinky gold dress and black turban.
The appearance followed a string of others in Europe, and the busy schedule has apparently taken a toll on the 20-year-old. “happy to get some rest. time to go be sicky,” she tweeted afterward.
Her vocals were noticeably flat during the performance, and she later tweeted that she was going on vocal rest. However brief her time of relaxation may be, it’s probably for the best — Miley will turn 21 on Saturday, and the big day will be followed by her anticipated American Music Awards performance Sunday.
Chances are, she won’t get much of a chance to rest after that, either. In early December, she’ll play a series of Jingleball concerts, and after the holidays, she’ll have to start preparing for her Bangerz tour, which kicks off in mid-February.
