During the opening of ‘Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party,’ which was held in Miami, Cyrus said the show was looking different than originally planned, due to the surge of the COVID-19 omicron variant. “Now this isn’t exactly the New Year’s Eve party we all thought that we were going to have or even the one that we were planning on last week or just a few hours ago,” she said. She also ensured the television audience that everyone in attendance was vaccinated against, and had been tested for, COVID.
