She’s come in like a wrecking ball on Saturday Night Live before. Miley Cyrus returns to the sketch comedy show tonight, Oct. 3, for her third time as host. She’s played Justin Bieber and Scarlett Johansson on previous shows, and based on a picture that surfaced earlier this week, we’re betting her iconic Hannah Montana character will make an appearance this time around. In honor of the singer and actress’ return to SNL, we’re looking back at her five best moments.
1. Disney Channel acting school
During her first time hosting back in 2011, the former Hannah Montana star poked fun at her old role in a sketch about how to become a Disney star with SNL’s Kenan Thompson portraying Raven-Symone. The necessary skills for appearing on a Disney Channel show include being as loud as possible, disrespecting authority, and our favorite, the “pause then dis.” We’re still laughing!
2. VMAs backstage with Vanessa Bayer
During her second time hosting in 2013, Cyrus joked about her controversial performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, where she got up close and very personal with with Robin Thicke and a foam finger. Bayer portrayed the “old” Miley and poked fun at “new” Miley’s twerking. The best part? When Bayer gave Cyrus an American Girl Molly doll, alluding to the drug reference in her 2013 hit “We Can’t Stop.” Oh, adults.
3. Justin Bieber impressions
In a simpler time, back in 2011, Justin Bieber was best known for rocking his purple hoodie and his long shaggy hair. Cyrus did a dead-on spoof of the “What Do You Mean?” singer by doing the “wink, cocky head nod, point” that the Biebs was so fond of doing back then.
4. Fifty Shades of Grey audition
The “Party In the USA” singer hilariously dressed up as Scarlett Johansson to do a mock audition for the hit movie, along with Taran Killam as Christoph Waltz. Honestly, she was kinda perfect.
5. Performing “Wrecking Ball”
Dressed in black and chains, Cyrus absolutely killed it during her performance of her smash 2013 single. Pop perfection, and it showed just how strong of a singer Cyrus really is.
