Watch Miley Cyrus Perform “Wrecking Ball” In A Fake Desert On ‘The X Factor’ UK

Miley Cyrus took some inspiration from Disney’s Aladdin for her latest “Wrecking Ball” performance, singing atop a fake sand dune and dressed in a black turban and gold dress on The X Factor UK Sunday night (November 17). It was perhaps her least memorable performance of this whole stretch — apparently she was a bit under the weather heading into the show, which would explain the shaky vocals. But, that’s sort of refreshing. Not every GD appearance has to be a pop culture Moment; sometimes you just have to let the song do the work, ya know? Otherwise, it’s exhausting for all parties.

Plus, she’s surely saving up for something major at the AMAs on Sunday.
