American Idol – Mentor Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus must think American Idol and Alex Woo jewelry work well together.  The last time, she was on American Idol it was for their star-studded blockbuster charity event where she wore Alex Woo’s Little Star and Little Note.

This time, the teen pop sensation came to serve as the contestants’ first guest mentor of the season and wore Alex Woo’s Vida Cuff during her own performance “When I Look at You”.  The song is from Miley’s upcoming movie “The Last Song,” which comes out on March 31st.

Prior to her strong performance and display of talent on the piano, she coached the 11 remaining competitors as they prepared to sing their pick from a list of every number one single in Billboard Hot 100 history and gave a few words of encouragement (and advice) to the contestants.

Mixing compliments with suggestions on how to make the performances better, the below are a few her more interesting comments.

Tim Urban - “I would give you two thumbs up. I think you rock. It’s not the personality he’s lacking. It’s just adding riffs or switching it up somehow.”

Lee Dewyze - “Lee, I think, has an amazing voice. The only thing that is lacking sometimes is his stage presence. Give them a few notes they wouldn’t expect from you.”

Crystal Bowersox – “There were some times when she hit those high notes that it sounded gospel.”

Miley Cyrus – Idol Gives Back

American Idol Miley CyrusWhat an incredible phenomenon American Idol is — and what a phenomenal idea it was put it to good use for a star-studded blockbuster charity event meant to entertain millions of people for the sake of helping millions more. Bigger and more ambitious than ever, it was a night of exhilarating performances, unexpected collaborations and heartbreaking presentations showing just who, exactly, those donated dollars would go to help. With a rolodex of celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Celine Dion, Forrest Whitaker, Fergie, Mariah Carey, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Bono, Reese Witherspoon and many others, the show at the Kodak Theatre in LA raised a whopping $60+ million.

The most anticipated performance of the night came from singer/actress Miley Cyrus. Known for starring as Miley Stewart, “Hannah Montana” on the Disney Channel Original Series, Hannah Montana, she performed a two-song set for the American Idol special and even had a little stand-up comedy sketch with comedian Billy Crystal. Wowing the audience with an energetic performance of “Good and Broken” she also looked stylish for the millions of viewers, by selecting to wear a glittering black-with-white-stars tank top underneath a black jacket with Alex Woo Little Notes and Little Princess jewelry.
