Miley Cyrus didn’t show up to the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, even though she was supposed to be honored at the ceremony. Concerned fans are now reacting on Twitter to the singer’s mysterious last-minute absence. See tweets below.

Not only was Cyrus slated to receive the Ultimate Choice Award, the award show’s highest honor, but she was also nominated for four additional accolades. Among the singer’s nods included Choice Female Artist, Choice Song by a Female Artist for “Malibu,” Choice Summer Female Artist and Choice Summer Song for “Malibu.” Cyrus has been a staple at the annual awards show for years, even hosting the event in 2008. On Sunday night, however, Victoria Justice announced without explanation that Cyrus had to cancel her appearance.

One fan tweeted, “The fact that Miley didn’t post anything yet makes me worry. Maybe it’s still a joke but what if something serious happened? Hope she’s ok.” Another person asked, “Wow what happened to Miley Cyrus?” One person wrote, “If I was Miley I wouldn’t have showed up either,” and one added, “I wonder why Miley couldn’t attend the show last minute!?” Meanwhile, more than one fan called the news “disappointing.”

One fan complained, “I really just cringed through that awkward opening for Miley not to show up omg.” Another similarly griped, “miley made me sit through 10 minutes of the cringiest award show ever for her not to even show up.” One person offered, “I’m still awake waiting for Miley to surprisingly show up and tell us this was all a joke.” And another fan expressed, “I’m just really worried and first and foremost I hope Miley is ok!”

Cyrus later explained her absence in an Instagram post, writing, “To my dearest fans & all of those watching @teenchoicefox! I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward ! I am beyond bummed I couldn’t make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor! I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement!”

The singer added, “I’ve been tryin to keep the secret but I can’t hide it any longer! My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday, Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! The singer concluded, “I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and am thankful everyday for those who listen! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!”
