After “Wrecking Ball” was announced as the winner, Cyrus hugged Jesse, who then walked up to the stage and accepted the award from Jimmy Fallon on Cyrus’ behalf.
He gave a speech talking about his own situation and the overall youth homeless crisis in Los Angeles and beyond as Cyrus looked on from the audience, crying.
It was an unexpected, wonderful moment.
Shortly after her friend’s speech, Cyrus posted a video about a homeless center called My Friend’s Place on her Facebook page (see below).
