Miley Cyrus may have rocked a stormy stage on the Today show this morning, but she steered clear of opening up any critical floodgates by keeping her performances family-friendly.

Careful to avoid a Teen Choice Awards redo, the tween queen sang her now infamous single, "Party in the U.S.A.", while fighting all urges to straddle the pole in her dance routine.

Granted, the "pole" we speak of was really just a leg of the tent being used to shield the band from the ensuing New York rainstorm, but Miley definitely switched up her choreography for the screaming moms and daughters below.

Before you start to worry, she was still "moving [her] hips, like, yeah."

Miley performed a four song set, including oldies "The Climb" and "See You Again" and a rock-tinged "Kicking and Screaming" from her Wal-Mart exclusive album hitting stores Monday.

The interview itself was par for the course, with Miley fielding the usual questions about being a role model for young girls and dealing with media scrutiny ("I'm not here to say I'm perfect, because I'm far from that"), but we also learned that her Wal-Mart clothing line with BCBG's Max Azria is "all super cheap…and it's built for people with normal bodies and beautiful curves."

Mainly, we were just wowed by Miley's four song, totally live, no-back-tracking powerhouse performance. She belted out the tunes and avoided all dirty dancing—it's a good morning.
