Miley Cyrus gave an emotional performance of her new single “Malibu” on Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Introduced by her father Billy Ray and younger sister Noah Cyrus -- who teased her sibling that this would be the first time she performed with her “pants on” -- Miley’s performance was relatively restrained, fitting given the back-to-basics nature of the song. Performing "Malibu" for the first time on live television, the country-flavored tune was a big hit with the audience, and Miley seemed touched and grateful for the moment, getting visibly emotional during the final chorus of the song.
