Miley Cyrus pulled double-duty on the season premiere of SNL last night, both hosting and performing as the episode’s musical guest. Hillary Clinton introduced her before she took the stage to perform the lovely “Karen Don’t Be Sad” off of her recent surprise album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, looking like a cross between Botticelli’s Birth Of Venus and Cousin Itt and backed up by an animal-suited Flaming Lips. She also performed an emotional, tear-filled rendition of album closer “Twinkle Song” on solo piano. Watch both performances and check out a few newly announced Miley/Lips tour dates below.
