The producers of Fox's Teen Choice Awards announced that the ‘Malibu’ singer was the recipient of the show’s top honor, 'Ultimate Choice' Award," for her involvement in the annual ceremony over the last decade. But seeing the singer failing to appear at the Galen Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night to accept it disappointed almost everyone present on a beautiful evening.
Miley said that she was bummed as she didn't make it on TCA's
Cyrus was also nominated in four categories: Choice Female Artist, Choice Song: Female Artist ("Malibu"), Choice Summer Female Artist, Choice Summer Song ("Malibu") and Choice Summer Female Artist. But the singer, who has a remarkable 18 wins under her belt, lost all four awards.

So, why did Cyrus cancel at the last minute?
About an hour of the announcement by Justice, Cyrus wrote a long post on Instagram saying she was "beyond bummed" she didn't make it to the Teen Choice Awards. "I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor!" she a s sured her fans, thanking them and the show for the Ultimate Choice Award.
She further explained

My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday , Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!
Cyrus's fanbase was not all happy on the social media - but they did take solace in the promise of new music, and video of the clip that would have aired on TV if Cyrus had shown up to accept the award on Sunday.
