Yesterday, OK! reported that some Miley Cyrus fans were upset about the apparent use of a not-very-convincing body double during a portion of the 15-year-old singer’s concert performance. (CLICK HERE for story). Now, a rep for the teen sensation has reached out to OK! to explain just why the double is utilized.
"To help speed the transition from Hannah to Miley, there is a production element during the performance of "We Got the Party" incorporating a body double for Miley," the rep explains to OK!. "After Hannah has completed the featured verse on the duet with the Jonas Brothers, a body double appears approximately 1 to 2 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."
