Miley Cyrus found a way to top her MTV VMA appearance from last year with what could be the most poignant moment of the award show.
After winning Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball," Miley let homeless youth Jesse accept the award for her "on behalf of the runaways and homeless youth."
"I have survived at shelters all over the city," said Jesse. "I have been an extra in your movies. I have been an extra in your life. Though I have been invisible in your life, I have the same dreams as many [of you]."
Miley has been helping out a homeless center for young people in Los Angeles called My Friend's Place.
"Los Angeles has the largest population of homeless youth in America," said Jesse. "54,000 human beings who have no place to call home."

According to Miley's Facebook page, "For every $5 donation, you'll be entered to win a trip for 2 to Brazil to hang out with me at my show in Rio de Janeiro on Sept 28th. You'll get the full VIP experience, including 2 of the best seats in the house."
On the VMA red carpet, Miley promised Sway and Lucy Hale that she had something "really special" planned.
"It think it's going to make a different kind of impression, so it's going to be cool," said Miley.
