As soon as we heard Miley Cyrus would be helping Ryan Seacrest bring in the new year on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve, we figured she’d pull out all the stops for her last chance to shock and awe us in 2013. So imagine our surprise when her outfit included a lot less skin than usual as she chose to bare only her midriff — and even bundled up in a giant fur coat!

Okay, maybe not that surprised. It’s really cold out there!

But our little wrecking ball did come through on one of her trademarks — her signature little person dancing alongside her as she performed “Get it Right” and “Wrecking Ball” live from Times Square covered in way more gold sparkly fabric than we’ve become accustomed to from her.

2013 may have been Miley’s year, but she’s not sad it’s over. In fact, she’s ready to take over in 2014. On Tuesday, Miley tweeted a selfie in 2014-shaped glasses, adding, “Yo 2014! If you ain't scuuuurd of me just ask 2013 what's up.”  

Here’s what we’re hoping Miley has in mind: more clothes, more songs like "Wrecking Ball" and "Adore You," and more performances where her talent isn't overshadowed by the crazy (and sometimes scary) stuff going on around her. And way, way less tongue.
