Miley Cyrus plays Justin Bieber on SNL

Miley Cyrus

By Kim Palacios With Vanessa Bayer playing Miley Cyrus during Saturday Night Live’s “The Miley Cyrus Show” parody, host Miley Cyrus played the role of pretend guest Justin Bieber.

Donning a short wig and playing to jokes alluding to Bieber’s young age, the real Cyrus delivered an effective caricature of Bieber, one made more ironic by the fact that Cyrus and Bieber are fewer than two years apart. Cyrus herself was a good sport throughout the sketch, taking Bayer’s portrayal of her in stride.

Bayer’s Cyrus is always smiling, is constantly embarrassed by overly doting dad Billy Ray (played by Jason Sudeikis), and pronounces almost everything she mentions as “pretty cool.” During her March 5th run as host, the real Cyrus didn’t seem to mind the enthusiastic but verbally challenged portrayal of herself.
