Miley Cyrus on ‘SNL’: Twerktastic, or not?

If you expected twerking from Miley Cyrus during her Saturday Night Live gig, you were sorely disappointed.

“Now that white people are doing it, it seems kind of lame,” Cyrus said during a monologue that addressed her performance on the MTV Video Music Awards and the fate of Hannah Montana (“She was murdered”).

Other than an opening skit about her VMAs performance causing the end of America, Cyrus, who was both the show’s host and musical guest, mostly steered clear of controversy, like last week’s online exchange with Sinead O’Connor. She did, however, play a slutty Michele Bachmann in a We Can’t Stop parody video about the government shutdown. Other sketches featured her as Hillary Clinton in an MTV miniseries, a hip-hop-obsessed high-school student, a sullen morning-show anchor and Scarlett Johansson doing a screen test for Fifty Shades of Grey.

Cyrus kept the commentary and controversy out of her two musical performances. She dressed much more conservatively for her powerhouse performance ofWrecking Ball than she did in her music video, wearing a sheer sports jersey that revealed a black two-piece when backlit. She switched into a white outfit — though still with see-through elements — for a poignant version of We Can’t Stop, accompanied by three acoustic guitars.

“The project lets us see a different side to Gerard Butler that we don’t normally see in his leading man roles,” says Loyal Studios Producer, Bob Bekian.

With make-up provided by Greg Nicotero (“The Walking Dead“), Butler was transformed into a character that is strikingly believable.

“We shot the sequences of Gerard Butler in our high definition green screen stage in Santa Monica using the Panavision Genesis system co-developed by Sony,” Bekian added.  “The camera records the highest quality HD files electronically and as a result, is very close to the look of  film.”
