"I am really excited because this next performer is without a doubt the coolest person that I know. Her voice is amazing.

Her songwriting is beautiful and totally relatable. She knows exactly what I'm growing though. She is who she is as an artist," Miley told the star-studded crowd at The Forum. "I cannot wait for the entire world to get a load of her vision. She's who I want to be when I grow up and that's saying a lot because she's a lot younger than me."

The whole Cyrus clan was in attendance at The Forum including Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus to support Naoh. While we’re talking about family, DJ Khaled Brought His Son Asahd To Help Him Introduce Ed Sheeran. After a failed experiment at the Brit Awards with houses, Katy Perry's brought out Giant Inflatable Hamster & Hamster Wheel for her performance while she rocked a red and pink pants suit, with matching sneakers.

Coldplay was presented with the best tour award for their ongoing A Head Full of Dreams trek, Chris Martin accepted the award on the band's behalf and had three kids read their self-deprecating acceptance speech. A little girl stood on a chair and read a letter that applauded the band's makeup team and named dropped One Direction, while Martin reacted quietly to the adorable moment in the background.

"Innovator is a very heavy word and I'm so honored. It's a little ironic for me because I genuinely feel like I'm just getting started, so buckle up. I don't know where we're going yet, but we going. Keep up, y'all.”
