    Near Riot at Hanna Montana Concert Over Body Double!!

    Posted in Non-Music obviously.


    Los Angeles (E! Online) - Giving her fans the Best of Both Worlds is apparently too much for Miley Cyrus to handle on her own.


    The singer, who performs both as herself and her Disney Channel alter ego on the sold-out concert tour, was accused in an OK! magazine report this week of using a body double during a brief portion of her show.

    "When it got to the bridge of the song 'We Got the Party,' her dancers began to crowd around her," one concertgoer told the magazine.

    "Then they covered her with a black sheet, and she went through a secret door. Within a second, a new 'Hannah' came out of a different door wearing oversize white glasses. The whole time this was happening, Miley's vocals were still playing. The imposter had her back turned while she danced, trying to hide the fact that she was not Miley Cyrus. At this instant, I became very suspicious."

    "Needless to say I was furious!" the irate fan added. "I paid good money to see the concert. I was disappointed, and I felt like I was played for a fool."

    In the wake of the report, a rep for the Hannah Montana star confirmed Cyrus does indeed rely on a body double for a brief part of her set in order to allow her to transform from Hannah back into herself.

    "To help speed the transition from Hannah to Miley, there is a production element during the performance of 'We Got the Party' incorporating a body double for Miley," the rep said in a statement.

    "After Hannah has completed the featured verse on the duet with the Jonas Brothers, a body double appears approximately one to two minutes prior to the end of the song in order to allow Miley to remove the Hannah wig and costume and transform into Miley for her solo set.

    "Other than during this very brief transitional moment in the show, Miley performs live during the entirety of both the Hannah and Miley segments of the concert," the rep added.



    I added the bold myself. Notice how nobody is complaining about the lip synching. Sheesh!







    Don't read this.

    Here's the video... Pretty interesting... They make the switch between 2:20 - 2:30

    I'd be more concerned that who ever wrote that song kinda ripped off Kim Wylde's "Kids in America"

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=-hWZqllm3mQ

    But I guess the Jonas brothers re-did this song anyway....

    Miley is kinda cool... When ever stuff like this happens she says "That's just satan attacking"... That's how i feel when shit goes wrong for me...

    Near riot??? You have got to be kidding me. Over a transition in an entire production, they have a girl with a wig on who is not Miley. The whole show is about being two different people and fooling people. And as mentioned, part if not all the music is lip synched as the dancing is emphasised over the music. Parents should take this opportunity to explain the difference between reality and fantasy. Geez....

    To make matters worse, the vocals being pumped in were Michael Anthony's. Just no class from Miley Cyrus....

    Actually, that happened when this person paid hundreds of dollars to go see this show in the first place.

    ROFLMAO!!!!

    Miley is pretty cool. As an entertainer, my kids love her. Her songs are pretty basic, but some of them have some killer hooks. Not my thing, but the kids dig it. Which to me is very cool.

    Are we really going to debate the credibility of a Hannah Montana show? Why is this even news? BFD

    Their mother's should pop in a tape of Milli Vanilli on the way home and say: "You kids want to complain about being duped......"
