Cyrus caught using body double in concert

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus, a.k.a. Hannah Montana, has been caught using a body double during her recent concert tour. Towards the end of one song, a man throws a black cape over Cyrus and she exits through a door of a set piece. A moment later, someone dressed as Hannah Montana appears on stage through an adjacent door, climbs a riser and dances for the rest of the song while keeping her face hidden. Miley’s rep explained the reason for the double to OK! magazine: “To help speed the transition from Hannah to Miley, there is a production element during the performance of We Got The Party incorporating a body double for Miley. After Hannah has completed the featured verse on the duet with The Jonas Brothers, a body double appears approximately one to two minutes prior to the end of the song in order to allow Miley to remove the Hannah wig and costume and transform into Miley for her solo set. Other than during this very brief transitional moment in the show, Miley performs live during the entirety of both the Hannah and Miley segments of the concert.”

    That sucks, no one pays to see a body double. She should just have stage dancers there entertaining while she changes. I think it’s very deceptive of her to do it this way.

    whatever, does it honestly matter if two counts are like a dancer instead of miley.
    she poor girl has to pretend to be two different people and change costume accordingly all while singing and dancing on tour. give her a freaking break

    Sad truth is that soon, she will be another Britney Spears

    Of course there have long been rumours that Hannah and Miley are the same person, but those have now been proven false. People shouldn’t complain about how much the tickets cost now they know they’re seeing two performers for the price of one.

    I think it’s great to add such a production element to a show for kids…Miley is great.

  6. me • January 10, 2008 @ 6:01 PM

    I agree Erica, these child stars all end up going down the same path.

    I say leave the future starlet be. She will not be another Britney. So what she has a body double, what if you had to put on a show night after night, it gets tiring. Lets stop critizing these celebrities and enjoy the entertainment they are trying to provide our own chaotic lives.

    Yeah, must be hard putting on a show night after night. How will she cope? Hmm, didn’t Britney start out the same way? Why, yes she did! That kind of life is just way too hard, and these kids end up taking drugs or drinking or whatever just to cope, and then they just keep spiraling downwards. Britney is just a case in point.

    I don’t see what the big deal is… if a performer is playing multiple characters on stage, then the gap filler between costume changes is a non-issue. I thought it was a creative thing to keep the audience interest up during the change.

    Britney is trailer park fabulous!!

    Britney is the most talked-about person on the planet, and in 2008, THAT’s the very definition of a star.

    Time will tell if Miley has Britney’s staying power or simply lucked out by being born into a famous family.

  12. Arnold • January 11, 2008 @ 1:21 AM

    Britney for Pope!

    Miley is great — I have ALL her albums.

  14. Moi !! • January 11, 2008 @ 8:29 AM

    Well i think its cool that Hannah Uses a body double and they’ve done a really good job with it that you would’nt know unless somebody told you. I DONT think miley will end up anything like britney spears !!

    Hannah Montana is the best show on television.

  16. dre • January 11, 2008 @ 12:38 PM

    Y’all just jealous….this girl is great, and who cares about a body double, PLEASE!!! Doesn’t matter what these celebrities do, jealous people pick them apart. People should just let them be, and continue being entertained by them. It’s hard work to make it to the top, but it’s easy to sit back and judge and criticize.

  17. me • January 11, 2008 @ 2:11 PM

    Zoey 101 was one of the best shows on tv for pre-teens, and look what’s happened. Being a child star is a very dangerous thing, it takes extremely strong parents to keep things in perspective for these kids, and it looks to me like Miley already has too much on her plate. She’s gonna crash and burn like the rest of them, because she’s doing too much.

  18. me • January 11, 2008 @ 2:39 PM

    And I still think it was very deceptive, she or her agents should have let people know what they were paying for.

    I look forward to seeing Hannah Montana in the next Potter movie.

  20. me • January 12, 2008 @ 4:35 PM

    Nah, that’s supposed to be Madonna’s kid in the next Potter movie.

    maybe she will make herself a twin so she doesn’t have to use a body double.

  22. sk8tergirl • February 23, 2008 @ 11:12 AM
