The 28-year-old pop star headlined the TikTok Tailgate at Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday, performing hits like “High” and “Edge of Midnight” from her 2020 album Plastic Hearts, as well as past singles including “We Can’t Stop.

At one point, while singing her 2013 song “Wrecking Ball,” Cyrus got emotional, tearing up and struggling to sing through the popular chorus.

Afterward, she told the audience, “Singing that song, ‘Wrecking Ball’ about feeling completely broken and shattered … everyone suffering is different, even everyone’s threshold of pain … I wear a lot of glitter and I wear a lot of armor and I also wear my heart on my sleeve, and it gets broken a lot. Wearing a black and hot pink cheerleader-style skirt and top with matching kneepads and heeled boots, Cyrus covered tracks including Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole,” Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” “Heart of Glass” by Blondie.
