As soon as we first heard the details of Miley Cyrus’s plans for her blowout 21st birthday party, we knew something would be amiss — but we could never have predicted this!

Held after the AMAs on Sunday, we weren’t too surprised to hear the party included little people, who have become a trademark in Miley’s recent performances. However, one of them got a little out of hand and almost hit Calvin Harris in the face.

But never fear, Calvin — One Direction’s Liam Payne is here!

“Big thank you to @Real_Liam_Payne for saving me from getting KO’d by a flying ‘person of unusually short stature tonight,” the star DJ tweeted after he left the party. Um, yikes?

Fortunately, everyone left the party relatively unscathed, including Liam, who hit up the party with bandmate Niall Horan. Other celebrity guests? Emma Roberts, Kelly Osbourne, and Wiz Khalifa, to name a few.

Safety hazards not included, Miley’s birthday bash was definitely a memorable one for everyone in attendance. After all, how could anyone forget a giant version of Dr. Suess’s The Lorax walking around… or a cake featuring a naked Miley covered in the leaves of her favorite plant? We weren’t even there, and the image of that cake is forever burned into our brains.

But to each her own — if Miley had a blast (and no pop icons were hurt in the making of this party) that’s all that matters!
