Though she did smoke a joint while onstage at the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Amsterdam on Nov. 10, Miley Cyrus' EMA antics were tame in comparison with her now-infamous VMA performance with Robin Thicke from August. 

The 20-year-old crooner opened the show singing "We Can't Stop" in a knee-length, skintight silver Norma Kamali long-sleeve dress. And though the ensemble showed off her curves and lack of bra, compared to her nude-colored spandex two-piece at the VMA's it came off as surprisingly conservative. 

Throughout the song, she led one dancer around the stage, twerking on her and grabbing her boob. 

The entire opener had an outer space-theme, with Cyrus "landing" on the stage wearing an astronaut's helmet and dancing with aliens.

Later in the show, the former Disney star sang her hit "Wrecking Ball" in a white leotard that showed off her legs and lots of thigh. Singing the emotional ballad while standing in front of a giant screen projecting an image of her own face crying, Cyrus belted the hit, which would later win the award for Best Video. 

As she took the stage to accept the award, Cyrus lit a joint and smoked it. Following the show, she had little to say online, but she did tweet, "Stay in school & Be kind. Other than that HAVE FUN."
