As it turns out, the 21-year-old did a good job of putting on a brave face and even dedicated her cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Landslide” to her lost pup. However, Miley lost her nerve when it came to the part of the show where a giant inflatable likeness of Floyd appears on stage. She stopped singing and broke down sobbing. Her younger sister Noah Cyrus eventually helped the superstar off stage. See the emotional moment after the jump.
