If you’re like me and missed Miley Cyrus’s Bangerz tour when it came to Detroit, then we are in luck!
As you know, Miley’s latest concert run has been making headlines ever since this former Disney star turned “bad girl.”
Now, the 21-year-old singer is bringing her controversial show to the small screen this 4th of July weekend.
However, Miley is a smart girl, and she knows when she needs to tone it down for television. The tour’s creative director Diane Martel had this to say to Billboard.
“Her performance in this special is flawless and passionate,” also adding that it’s Miley’s vocal ability that will stand out, not her crazy stage antics.
Along with her concert, viewers will also get a behind-the-scenes look at Miley’s life off the stage:
“We see Miley as she is in her private life; very sweet, tender, loving and playful,” Martel tells Billboard. “Miley speaks about her personal growth to date during this tour. We get a sense of the smart and thoughtful artist she is.”
“It’s very low-key and intimate,” she adds. “She’s sophisticated in many ways and a young, silly girl in others… When you watch these brief, but effective scenes you see how relatable she really is. She really balances being an artist with being a 21-year-old quite well.”
Martel also feels the “truly electric” spirit of the live show is captured in the special.
“In this TV special, I think you have a sense if the energy in the arenas,” she says. “Miley’s performance is intense and wild. She’s got a thrilling command of her stage and the room; this is something I was excited by in the edit. To see her eyes close up, to see her lithe body and huge voice making this collection of people respond in tandem, that’s the important thing to translate from stage to the small screen.”
Oh… and be sure to stick around to the very end!
“One of the most fun parts of the show is what you will see under the credits.”
Miley Cyrus’s ‘Bangerz’ TV special is set for Sunday (July 6th) at 9pm EST on NBC. Will you be tuning in? Sound off below!
