As Miley Cyrus steps out onto the Saturday Night Live stage tonight, all eyes will surely be on her tongue, as in will she keep it in her mouth. Surely others will tune in to see if she spoofs her twerking VMA performance from August. Miley, 20, is also the musical guest for tonight's SNL, according to the Daily News on Oct. 5. Cyrus' new album "Bangerz" is set to drop Tuesday, and the young pop star is riding an unheard of wave of popularity this summer, rarely seen in the industry.
The News notes how if Miley were running for President, her twerking, tongue-wagging and naked tears video would carry her right into the White House.
Cyrus just gave a "Rolling Stone" interview in which she said she hopes people respond to her new album the same way they did to Michael Jackson's "Bad", calling it f--king dope.
That's a tall order, but the album is expected to knock current chart-leader Drake off the mark, and take its place on top of the charts.

Miley's album has drawn praise by some music critics, while being panned by others. But that probably won't matter too much since it's her image that seems to be spurring her on to success these days.
After all, it's been over a month since Miley's controversial performance at MTV's Video Music Awards, and people are still talking about it.
Cyrus shocked viewers and even famous audience members with stage antics that included twerking and grinding on married Robin Thicke, 36, while also using a foam finger to simulate oral sex.
Not to mention the stir she caused Sept. 9, when she released the video for new song "Wrecking Ball". In it, Miley licks a sledgehammer and swings naked on an actual wrecking ball.
Call it what you want, Cyrus has managed to keep everyone talking. Brooke Shields called her desperate, Elton John said she's a meltdown waiting to happen while O'Connor warned her about becoming a prostitute.
Surely Miley's SNL gig will once again land her in the Sunday morning headlines.
"You might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds" she said in her upcoming MTV documentary.
