Miley Cyrus performed in front of a giant, animated cat which lip synched along to her 2013 hit 'Wrecking Ball' at this year's American Music Awards – scroll down to watch.

Though the performance was a far cry from her controversial turn at this year's MTV VMAs, which famously saw her twerking with Robin Thicke, Cyrus' skimpy, two-piece outfit has already drawn plenty of comment online.
