Miley duets with space kitty

We can describe Miley Cyrus' performance at yesterday's American Music Awards: Cyrus performed her hit Wrecking Ball as a duet of sorts with a giant, lip-syncing CGI kitten that floated through space projected on a screen behind her.

But no way can we explain it.

Playfully absurdist, it was a moment Salvador Dali would be proud of. And like all of these performances so far, it became delightfully self-referential when the cat finished the song by winking and sticking its tongue out - Cyrus' trademark move.

Just watch for yourself...
