Weirdly, she did even soundcheck.
The 2017 Teen Choice Awards descended into chaos at the last moment as it was announced that the rumoured host, would not be attending the show.
She was being awarded with an honorary award, ‘The Ultimate Choice Award’ but was unable to pick the prize up in person.
Victoria Justice, the 2016 host, appeared on stage to tell audience members and viewers that “Miley Cyrus couldn’t make it… but here’s Jake Paul”.
Naturally, fans were angry as Jake Paul was only a couple of weeks ago accused of racism when he told a fan that he “sounded like he’ll blow someone up”.
However, it seems that she did have a good excuse as she took to Instagram to release an official statement.
“To my dearest fans & all of those watching Teen Choice Awards! I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward! I am beyond bummed I couldn’t make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honour!”, she wrote.
To my dearest fans & all of those watching @teenchoicefox ! I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward ! I am beyond bummed I couldn't make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor! I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement! I've been tryin to keep the secret but I can't hide it any longer! My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday , Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I'm thankful everyday for those who listen! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!
Miley then gave a brief explanation as to why she was forced to miss the show.
“I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement! I’ve been trying to keep the secret but I can’t hide it any longer! My new single/music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday”, she revealed.
Now, whilst we are super excited for new music from Miss Cyrus, we’re gutted that we didn’t see her strutting her stuff on the red carpet.
And it seems that we are not alone:

To top things off, none of the big winners were there to accept their awards either with Beyonce and Ed Sheeran being no shows, along with Gal Gadot and Bruno Mars offering video acceptances.
This is the moment that annoyed fans worldwide, when Jake Paul turned on a fan...
