According to Variety, Miley will perform the breakup song at the awards show live for the first time.
"Slide Away" was released on August 16, which featured lyrics focused on a darker side of the former couple’s downfall.
In the extremely personal tune, Miley mentions Liam's alleged partying habits with "whiskey and pills," and appears to address the Isn’t It Romantic actor, 29, directly, as she tells him to move on.
"Move on, we're not 17,” the melancholy song concluded. “I'm not who I used to be / You say that everything changed / You're right, we're grown now."
The Last Song actress previously stated on July 26 that she would not take the stage after she was snubbed from the nominations. However, in light of her new single, Miley will take the stage after all.
