'Dancing With the Stars': Miley Cyrus (and hair) 'Can't Be Tamed'

miley-cyrus-tamed2.jpg Miley Cyrus channeled her best pre-Federline Britney Spears during her "Dancing With the Stars" elimination show performance Tuesday (May 18) night.

Donning sexy gear similar to what she wears in her official video, the untameable Cyrus did the first TV performance for her latest single live on "DWTS." Smoke bellowed from both sides of the stage while her entourage of wild animal back-up dancers surrounded her during the 3-minute performance.

The image was all Britney -- but unlike the former reining pop princess, Cyrus' dancing was minimal. However, the performance as a whole was definitely entertaining (she worked it), and we have to give props to the 17-year-old starlet for keeping her balance while strutting around in those dangerous-looking high heel boots.   

After she finished, host Tom Bergeron had a message for previous "DWTS" contestant Billy Ray Cyrus: "Billy Ray, your little girl's growin' up!"

That's one way to put it, Tom.

What did you think of Miley's TV debut of "Can't Be Tamed"? And her new sexified image?
