Miley Cyrus is going to take herself dancing to the Grammy Awards on Sunday. The veteran hitmaker, who is up for six awards this time around, is expected to perform her smash “Flowers” at the ceremony that will air live on CBS and Paramount+.
Cyrus was in downtown Los Angeles Friday afternoon at the Crypto.com Arena to rehearse for Sunday’s big show. A source close to the situation described the rehearsal as “blow-you-away good” and that Cyrus is in fine vocal form. It’s believed that the Grammy appearance will be the first time she has performed the tune on TV since its release in January 2023.

“Flowers,” a uptempo anthem of empowerment, is up for Song of the Year and Record of the Year honors. Variety has pegged it as the likely winner in the Record of the Year heat.
Cyrus’ “Endless Summer Vacation,” the album that delivered “Flowers,” is a contender for Album of the Year. She’s facing stiff competition in that category from Taylor Swift’s “Midnights,” among others.
Cyrus has racked up eight total career Grammy nominations since the “Hannah Montana” child star shifted her focus from acting to music in the late 2000s. But she has yet to take home a gramophone trophy. “Flowers” is also up for best pop solo performance while “Endless Summer Vacation” is nommed for best pop vocal album. Cyrus’ sixth nom came for best pop duo/vocal performance for “Thousand Miles,” her collaboration with Brandi Carlile.
Cyrus joins a growing list of Grammy telecast performers that includes SZA, Joni Mitchell, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs.
