Cyrus honored pop princess Britney Spears with the "Ultimate Choice Award" for her "extraordinary contribution to the entertainment industry" at the show that taped Sunday but airs Monday night on FOX at 8 p.m. ET. But for anyone who saw the subdued Spears on her recent "Circus" tour, it was hardly "teen" oriented ... 95 percent of show consisted of pole dancing, pelvic thrusts, spread eagles and sexually suggestive movements, not to mention her banned "If You Seek Amy" music video.
And it seems Miss Cyrus may have just spent a little too much time admiring the work of Spears as her own performance "Party in the USA" revealed quite the racy side complete with micro short shorts, black boots, bra showing and even the aforementioned action on a pole.
But Cyrus’ young fans are clearly behind her – the teen queen sailed away with six surfboard-shaped trophies at Sunday's ceremony. Cyrus won for comedy TV actress and comedy TV show for "Hannah Montana," music/dance movie actress and hissy fit for the "Hannah Montana" movie, music single for "The Climb" and summer song for "Before the Storm."
Cyrus was among several multiple award winners at the 11th annual ceremony at Universal Studios Hollywood's Gibson Amphitheatre.
Show hosts the Jonas Brothers kicked off the ceremony by performing "Much Better" on a tiny stage that moved through the audience. They won five awards, including choice male red carpet icons and breakout TV show for "Jonas."
The biggest winner of the night was vampire drama "Twilight," which sucked up nine movie awards: choice drama, romance, liplock, rumble, drama actress for Kristen Stewart, drama actor for Robert Pattinson, villain for Cam Gigandet, fresh face female for Ashley Greene and fresh face male for Taylor Lautner, who will also appear in the upcoming sequel, "New Moon."
"We'll see you guys in theaters Nov. 20," Lautner teased the squealing crowd.
Other big winners included "Gossip Girl" and Zac Efron. Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick picked up drama actor, actress, villain and TV series awards for the sudsy CW series while Efron won for music/dance movie actor in "High School Musical 3" and comedy movie actor and rockstar moment in "17 Again."
