Miley Cyrus was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. The musician and actress wasn’t on the show to sing or promote a new album, instead she came on to talk about her upcoming gig as a judge on the NBC singing competition, The Voice.

This is 'The Voice'

23-year-old Cyrus will be a judge on season 11 of The Voice, joining newcomer Alicia Keys and veterans Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Cyrus and Keys will be replacing current judges Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani.

Season 11 of The Voice will kick off some time in September. Cyrus was the lead guest on last nights show and she joined actor Josh Gad and Anthony Bourdain as the nights other guests.


During the segment, Fallon talked to Cyrus briefly about The Voice, then he challenged her to "Funny Face Off", a game in which the two try to recreate funny faces sent in by children. Her last appearance on The Tonight Show was in October of 2015. 

Making music 

Cyrus released her last album on August 30, 2015. The album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, was released for free online streaming on SoundCloud. This was her fifth studio album and it came two years after her highly successful Bangerz album. Although Dead Petz didn't do much on the charts, Cyrus was still receiving lots of recognition for Bangerz. The album produced three hit songs, We Can't Stop, Wrecking Ball, and Adore You.

Over the past few years, Cyrus has had some very controversial moments. One of the biggest was during her performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

Cyrus took the stage with Robin Thicke for a mixed performance of the songs We Can't Stop and Blurred Lines. The performance was highly sexualized and received a ton of criticism and negative press. Fast forward three years later, and it seems like Cyrus has calmed down and matured a little bit from her earlier years. She's no longer trying to shed her Disney image, and instead has embraced her many talents. It looks like Cyrus will continue making new music, acting in films, and appearing on television.
