Miley’s recent Unplugged performance on MTV was just a preview of what’s to come on her upcoming Bangerz Tour. Complete with a hoedown theme and a live band, viewers were ready to jump in on the “Hoedown Throwdown.” Unfortunately, we didn’t get her to sing it, but she did perform an array of songs from Bangerz, her latest album. This show was great for people who don’t own the album because many non-singles were performed, such as “#GETITRIGHT” and “Do My Thang.” Apart from the songs on Bangerz that won’t be released as singles, Miley has a collection of hits from her previous three albums and her EP that were exclusive to their respective works. From her first album, Meet Miley Cyrus, to her latest and greatest, here’s a look at ten of the best Miley songs that were never released as singles.
