Miley Cyrus’ audition tape for “Hannah Montana,” the Disney TV series on which she starred from 2006 to 2011, has resurfaced online -- and her fans can't stop gushing at how cute the singer looks in it. The auction tape shows a 12-year-old, extremely confident Cyrus saying dialogue from the show.
The clip, which surfaced online Thursday on YouTube, shows the “Wrecking Ball” singer in her teenage days. She is seen wearing cute teenage dresses as she sings, acts and displays her talent in all three rounds of the audition. The video shows the now 22-year-old singer auditioning for the role of Zoey Stewart. (The character's name was later changed to Miley Stewart.)
Cyrus' father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, also makes a surprise appearance. The father daughter-duo share an elaborate handshake before they sing a country number. The “Achy Breaky Heart” singer played Cyrus' father on the show. “Hannah Montana” was the story of a teenage girl who lived a double life. She was a typical school-going teenager during the day but became a glamorous pop star at night.
The program made Cyrus a star. Prior to “Hannah Montana,” Cyrus had minor roles in the television series “Doc,” and in a movie titled “Big Fish.” After “Hannah Montana,” she was signed by Hollywood Records and released her debut studio album, “Meet Miley Cyrus,” in 2008. The album was a huge success and also gave the singer her first hit single, "See You Again.”
Cyrus then pursued a singing career and issued three more albums: “Breakout” (2008), “Can't Be Tamed" (2010), and “Bangerz” (2013). With each album, Cyrus has been trying to shed her “Hannah Montana” image. She chopped off her long hair and has gained notoriety for various controversial situations.
