Miley Cyrus

Miley introduces her rendition of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by telling her fans that it's a song that inspired her to become a performer. This isn't hard to imagine once it gets going. Sure, she might not be perfectly suited to this type of high-intensity rocking, and she seems a bit physically awkward at times, but she looks like she's having a ball up there. Also, it should be noted that she actually has a family connection to Kurt Cobain: Her father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, was actually friends with the late Nirvana frontman.
