It was bound to happen! Miley’s cat-tastic performance at the American Music Awards was finally lampooned on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ when the country singer turned “Wrecking Ball” into a Thanksgiving-themed song. Read on to watch!
We loved Miley Cyrus‘ performance at the AMAs on Nov. 24 — which featured her in a skimpy leotard simply singing “Wrecking Ball” while an animated cat mouthed the words behind her — but we can’t say we’re surprised it’s getting made fun of. Country singer Carrie Underwood did the honors in a hilarious performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Nov. 28.
Carrie Underwood Spoofs Miley Cyrus’ AMA Performance
The spoof started with Jimmy Fallon and actress Rashida Jones singing other Thanksgiving-themed songs. They rocked out about getting turkey in a parody of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” and they even sang a song about Hanukkah to the music of Lorde‘s “Royals” (we’re sure she’ll have an opinion about that).
But the highlight definitely came when Carrie made a surprise appearance in front of, yep, an animated singing cat! As she bellowed out, “You made me cook a butterball/And then a green bean casserole,” the cat sang along with a pilgrim hat on in a perfect imitation of Miley at the AMAs.
It was definitely all in good fun, though Carrie really could have taken it to the next level by donning Miley’s signature, crotch-baring onesie.
Miley Cyrus: Why She Chose To Perform With A Cat At The AMAs
And actually, HollywoodLife.com reported exclusively that Miley’s performance in itself was a bit of a diss. The producers of the AMAs warned performers to avoid being racy, and the “We Can’t Stop” singer cleverly lashed out at their Puritan request.
“She definitely would have pushed it further,” a source told us. “She decided to prove a point and put her p***y up on the big screen.” Ahh, we get it!
We’ll be interested to hear what Miley thinks of Carrie’s Late Night spoof. Until then, what do you think about it, HollywoodLifers? Watch it above and let us know!
