Miley Cyrus Snubs ‘The Voice’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Gossip, Rumors

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus has refused to perform on The Voice because of Christina Aguilera.

The "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker reportedly has an intense dislike of the show's coach - who, like Miley, shot to fame as a young Disney star - and even though the "Fighter" singer is currently on a two-season break from the competition, she won't sing on the show.

"Miley is no friend or supporter of Christina, despite the fact they have a lot in common, including long associations with Disney and using some of same people through the years on their respective business teams. Even if Christina has temporarily stepped aside, The Voice is still Christina's show and Miley doesn't want to lift a finger to help that woman," a source said.

Show bosses are said to be upset as they are desperate for the former Hannah Montana star to sing on the season finale. "Last month Voice bosses made Miley another offer to have her perform on the finale show and Miley said no - and was very clear about her reasons!" the source said.

The first year of this show I lost my mom; the second year I lost my dad. Then my brother died and after that I was pretty much out of family. The folks here became my family. When people say to me, 'Hey, why don't you go to ABC, why don't you go to Fox?' - [but] I didn't know anybody over there. These are the only people I know," he said towards the end of the show.

The 63-year-old funny man was joined by a galaxy of stars for his last ever broadcast at the Burbank Studios in California, including Kim Kardashian and Billy Crystal, who led everyone in a comedic rendition of The Sound of Music's So Long, Farewell along with Jack Black, The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons and chat show legend Oprah Winfrey, who warbled the line "you really raised the bar if you were me you'd buy them all a car."
