When Miley talks, people listen.

Hear what the singer has to say about ‘American Idol’ (she doesn’t watch, but she has an opinion), the singers she admires, the first concert she ever attended and disaster relief.

Oh, and after the show she’ll be auctioning her Herve Leger dress on eBay, with proceeds going to the Red Cross.
