Hannah Montana's body double exposed

Filed under: Big Kids, Teens, Celeb Kids

Miley Cyrus is taking some heat lately for using a body double on stage during her Best of Both Worlds Tour. There is a video that shows her slipping off stage in the middle of a song via a trap door. She reappears instantly, dancing around and singing with her hair covering her face. It turns out that this hair-in-the-face girl isn't actually Miley, but a body double. She's there to cover as the real Miley is making a quick costume change.

Cyrus' rep says this: "After Hannah has completed the featured verse on the duet with the Jonas Brothers, a body double appears approximately one to two minutes prior to the end of the song in order to allow Miley to remove the Hannah wig and costume and transform into Miley for her solo set. Other than during this very brief transitional moment in the show, Miley performs live during the entirety of both the Hannah and Miley segments of the concert."

See, it's just about wardrobe. No big deal. But I am still confused. Despite the fact that the fake Miley appears to sing while on stage, Cryus' rep insists there is no lip syncing going on during the show. So, is the real Miley continuing to sing from offstage as she removes her Hannah wig and puts on her Miley clothes? If not, where is the singing coming from?

I think most of the kids who are going to her shows couldn't care less about the brief appearance of a body double. Leave it to us grownups to create a scandal out of nothing.
