Miley Cyrus’ Pole Dance At The Teen Choice Awards: Was It Appropriate?

By Sandra Segura

Disney star Miley Cyrus, performed her addictive (read: once it gets in your head, it might not ever get out) new song, “Party In The U.S.A.” during the taping of the Teen Choice Awards last night. Miley danced away with six surfboards at the end of the night, including best comedy TV actress and show for “Hannah Montana,” best music/dance movie actress and hissy fit for the “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” best music single for “The Climb” and summer song for “Before the Storm.” Miley’s big papa even won an award for Choice TV Parental Unit.

During her mini-concert, Miley gave us a taste of how we should all be partying in the U.S.A., including a pseudo pole dance where she graced the top of an ice cream cart. For the 16-year-old who is constantly under a magnifying glass for her public persona (does Vanity Fair ring a bell to anyone?), it sounds quite scandalous. But Miley didn’t hold back, and from the looks of it, the audience didn’t mind her performance either — guess we’ll have to wait and see, though, what the tough critics out there thought after the full show airs tonight. Press play below to see for yourself.

What do you think of her performance: too provocative or totally acceptable for a teen?
