Miley Cyrus Calls Out Audience During GRAMMY Performance of 'Flowers'

The singer took a moment to call out the audience for 'acting like y’all don’t know this song.'

Miley Cyrus can buy herself flowers but wants the audience to sing along with her when she performs.

During the GRAMMY performance of her hit song, "Flowers," the 31-year-old singer and songwriter took a moment to call out the audience for ostensibly not giving it the energy that she was expecting. 

"Why are y’all acting like y’all don’t know this song?" Cyrus said while performing the song live on stage. 

Two audience members immune to that criticism? Taylor Swift and Oprah Winfrey, who were both spotted jamming out to the song from the crowd, singing along to the words and dancing while Cyrus continued to belt out her now GRAMMY-winning song. 

The "Wrecking Ball" singer also used the pauses in her song to shout-out her excitement over the GRAMMY win, which came for "Flowers" in the  Best Pop Solo Performance category. 

"I just won my first GRAMMY!!" the exuberant artist said mid-song, causing the audience to burst out into applause. 

Earlier in the night, after she was announced as the winner, Cyrus made her way to the stage and had an adorable fangirl moment over Mariah Carey, who stood by her side as she gave her acceptance speech.

"This MC is gonna stand by this MC for this because this is just too iconic," Cyrus gushed. "Oh my god, I just got stuck in the rain in traffic and thought I was going to miss this moment. I could miss the award, but I can't miss Mariah Carey."

Cyrus' night could get even bigger, as the singer, who stunned on the red carpet in a gold mesh dress, is nominated for five other awards: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

The 2024 GRAMMY Awards is on Sunday, Feb. 4, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET and being broadcast and streamed live on CBS and Paramount+ from Arena in Los Angeles. Follow along at for full coverage from music's biggest night, including performances, GRAMMY winners and more.
