When you're the new kid at the VMAs, typically you do your best and hope not to get overshadowed by all the superstars. But even though Sunday night was ex-Disney star Miley Cyrus' performance debut on the show, the twerk-happy singer grabbed the spotlight like a seasoned veteran.
Before the tongue really got working during "We Can't Stop," Cyrus hit the red carpet in a bedazzled half-shirt outfit with baby hair buns and boldly declared that she might top the infamous Britney Spears-Madonna-Christina Aguilera triple-kiss with Sunday night's giant-bear-assisted extravaganza. "We've got better in store for you guys, it's going be even crazier than the kiss," she predicted .
Miley got some love from one of her new hip-hop peers as well, with rapper Trinidad Jame$ tweeting, "Miley is turnt! My [n---a.]"

And Twitter user Luca posted a classic picture of Will Smith and his family reacting to Cyrus' performance with what can only be described as a combination of surprise and, well, even more surprise.
