Noah Cyrus’ VMAs Nomination Proves She’s Following In Miley’s Footsteps

Can it be? Yep, it's true. Miley Cyrus and Noah Cyrus' VMAs nominations were announced and fans of the family are losing it. Miley Cyrus received her first VMA nomination nine years ago, when her sister Noah was only eight years old.


The older Cyrus was up against Katy Perry and Taylor Swift for 2008's Best New Artist award, releasing music under her real name while still appearing as Hannah Montana on TV. Surprisingly, all three soon-to-be powerhouses lost out to Tokio Hotel...We can't really explain that. Emo hair is full of secrets?

Anyway, Miley was finally redeemed when her half-naked breakup revelation “Wrecking Ball” took home the big one – Video of the Year – in 2014, just one year after her famous Robin Thicke foam finger stunt at the 2013 ceremony.


Miley hosted the VMAs herself in 2015 and dropped her psychedelic concept album, Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz moments after the show ended.

Needless to say, the VMAs are a big deal for Miley.


But she's not the only Cyrus in the running for some hardware this year.

Her 17-year-old sister Noah is up for Best New Artist against critically-acclaimed favorites SZA and Khalid, as well as “Issues” singer Julia Michaels, Young M.A., and Kodak Black.

It's a tough field, but after that Tokio Hotel thing, anything could happen.

Her song “Make Me (Cry)” has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for 15 weeks, and she sounds like a promising young clone of her sister, at least vocally, on the track.

The more recently released “Stay Together” features the young Cyrus singing about drinking, smoking, and saying the F word. She's blossoming a little earlier than her sis, but definitely following in Miley's "I don't give a f**k"  footsteps.

Miley, too, is nominated for Best Pop Video for her comeback hit “Malibu,” joining the ranks of Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Fifth Harmony, and Shawn Mendes in that category.

Both Cyrus girls are in seriously stacked categories, but as always, the VMAs are fan-voted, so there's no telling who's going to come out on top here.
