Miley flashed her enviably toned tummy in a barely-there metallic tube top and a glitzy beaded skirt.

She gave her look some funky Miami flair by throwing on a rainbow fur coat. She slipped her feet into a pair of strappy heels to stomp around the stage with Davidson.

Cyrus’ bleach blonde hair was blown out and she highlighted her large blue peepers with a pale eyeshadow look and dramatic winged eyeliner.

The SNL star kept his newly shaved head concealed beneath a ball cap as he spoke directly to the audience with Cyrus by his side.

Once the jovial hosts wrapped up their opening number, they eagerly welcomed the night’s first guest act to the stage, Saweetie.

The 28-year-old rapper performed her hit song TAP IN while rocking a figure-hugging bodysuit and a semi-sheer green sarong.

She was later joined on stage by Brazilian pop songstress Anitta to perform their collaborative track Faking Love.

The pair had appeared in a sketch on SNL in 2017 as rapping babies, which ended with them saying the words, ‘We babies’. 

Miley said: ‘We were dressed as babies, everything seemed fun and fine. For some reason, we looked at each other and were like, ‘That’s a great tattoo… we’re doing this.’ 

Pete added: ‘And then we did…And then I burned mine off, and you still have yours.’

The Wrecking Ball singer only realized Pete had had his removed when she saw him beginning the process in an advert. 

She said: ‘He’s drinking Smartwater and getting his tattoos lasered off… and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. That’s right where ‘we babies’ was.’ Pete quipped: ‘It’s no babies.’
