The Real Star of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” AMAs Performance

So, a human-horse-riding Lady Gaga stole the spotlight from Miley Cyrus on the AMAs red carpet, but Miley was quick to take it back when she closed the awards show with “Wrecking Ball.” However, she didn’t have it for very long because something stole the spotlight away from her again during her performance. Can you spot what it is in the video? Watch:

Were you able to take your eyes off the cat mouthing the lyrics to “Wrecking Ball” in the background? You’re not alone — that cat is strangely hypnotizing. Some critics are even saying that the cat was all they could watch of the performance. Incidentally, Miley’s cat-covered Markus Lupfer bikini is all people can talk about Miley Cyrus’ AMAs performance as well.

Perhaps it was all part of the plan? Without the cats, Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” rendition at the AMAs was underwhelming, especially without the kind of stunts she pulled at the 2013 MTV VMAs and the 2013 MTV EMAs.

We actually like that the cats took center stage during Miley Cyrus’ AMAs performance. We’re always on board cat-themed fashion, and believe it or not, we do hope that Miley Cyrus’ high-cut bikini starts a trend. The print reminds us of the Miu Miu spring 2010 cat prints, and our archives know how obsessed we were with that collection.

It’s time to bring cute, kitschy animal prints back. While we wait for Markus Lupfer to bring his cat prints into our lives, here are cat-themed shoes that we can get right now:

In case you’re wondering, Miley’s kitten-print pair of underwear is designed by Markus Lupfer, though it is not known if he liked the way Miley styled the outfit at the American Music Awards. The cat print top that Miley wore is from the SS14 collection and unfortunately not available online yet. However, you may like some of these other tops that we found at Shopbop:
