    Miley Cyrus Rings in 2014 With "Wrecking Ball" but Jenny McCarthy Licks the Hammer on New Year's Rockin' Eve

    Well, you try twerking in a floor-length fur coat!

    Miley Cyrus turned in a tame, appropriate-for-all-ages performance of "Get It Right" and "Wrecking Ball" on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest last night, not even riding the famed ball in Times Square (as so many joked about ahead of time) as if it were her own personal wrecking ball.

    And she only touched herself onstage a little bit.

    The 21-year-old superstar wore a glittering gold crop top and pants and white heels, but the real show-stopper was the white fur coat, the one that's kept her toasty during her Jingle Ball travels, that lent a Sunset Boulevard air to the proceedings.

    Overall, Miley put on a crowd-pleasing show that had everyone singing along—and cohost Jenny McCarthy playfully licking a hammer on the sidelines! (That happens at around 3:48 in the clip.)

    "They missed our New Years kiss @RyanSeacrest," Miley tweeted at the evening's host. (Luckily the still cameras didn't miss it.)

    Bundling up was apparently key for her, however, because earlier in the night she had written, "this cough/cold is not a good combo. please keep praying for me. If I can just get thru tonight I can have a nice lil break."

    "The power of prayer is amazing...thank you for tonight :)," she added later when all went off without a hitch.

    McCarthy and boyfriend Donnie Wahlberg also made the most of their first New Year's Eve as a couple, sharing a big, long smooch at midnight to the delight of the cameras.

    Aside from Miley and all the kissing, the night's entertainment included performances by Ariana Grande and Big Sean, Debbie Harry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
