Miley Cyrus, the American singer, songwriter, and actress who gained worldwide fame for her role in the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana, has made history by becoming a first-time nominee in the “Big Three” categories at the Grammy Awards. The categories include album, record, and song of the year. After 16 years since her debut album, Miley Cyrus has finally received this recognition. In addition, the pop star is set to perform her hit single “Flowers” at the 2024 Grammy Awards ceremony, which will be held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 4. This will be Miley’s first live performance of the song on TV since its release in January 2023.
“Flowers” has become one of the year’s most popular songs, staying at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks. The song is also nominated for the Best Pop Solo Performance award. Cyrus co-wrote the song with Gregory Aldae Hein and Michael Pollack. “Flowers” is part of Cyrus’ album, Endless Summer Vacation, which has also been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album.
Moreover, Miley Cyrus and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, have made history as the third parent-child duo to receive a Record of the Year nomination.
