Best Multi-Platinum Surprise: Miley Cyrus

Is a party truly complete before Miley Cyrus shows up? Appearing at Mike Will Made It's Fader Fort showcase, she had the crowd in her palm from the moment she walked out and began rapping her verse from the producer's "23." She played her trump card next, sending the room into rowdy raptures with a performance of "We Can't Stop" that showed off her legit impressive vocal power. It also raised the question of whether enough time has passed for us to be nostalgic for the summer of 2013, that carefree season of red cups, sweaty bodies and barely disguised drug references in pop songs. Time waits for no one, but "We Can't Stop" is forever. Finally, she stayed onstage as Will's young protégés Rae Sremmurd sent us off with their irresistibly catchy "Throw Sum Mo."
