Miley Cyrus performed "Wrecking Ball," the intense second "Bangerz" single and her first No. 1 song on the Hot 100 chart, for the first time during a four-song performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village on Saturday (September 21), a daytime extension of the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

Taking the stage at a little after 1:30 pm PT, the 20-year-old pop phenom greeted the ravenous crowd in a white curve-hugging pant-shirt combo and launched into "We Can't Stop," with help from dancers dressed up as rainbows and mushrooms. After conjuring some twerking from a trio of little people onstage, Cyrus performed "Party In The U.S.A." and her cover of Melanie Safka's "Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma" before setting the stage for "Wrecking Ball's" blast of emotion.
