Los Angeles - Miley Cyrus appeared through a replica of her own mouth to open her Bangerz Tour in Canada over the weekend.

The We Can't Stop star entered through an opening in a picture of her face and slid down a huge pink tongue extending to the stage on the opening night of the tour in Vancouver.

The controversial singer showed off plenty of sexy dance moves including Twerking - the butt shaking dance she popularised last year - up against a giant blue teddy bear, rubbing her crotch, riding a hot dog and sucking on a foam finger.

The Party in the USA hitmaker opened the show in a red studded two-piece, before changing into a leotard printed with marijuana leaves and wearing a golden cannabis leaf around her neck, which she paired with white cowboy boots.

She admitted her nerves before the performance, tweeting: "I don't know if it's Valentines Day or #BangerzTour but I'm most definitely having a panic attack."

However, she showed no signs of losing confidence as she sang tracks from her Bangerz album including Love Money Party, 4X4, FU and Adore You, surrounded by dancers dressed in many outrageous costumes including as the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore and former president of the US, Bill Clinton.

Despite giving such a visual performance, Miley has previously claimed it is all about her songs.

She said: "It is fun for people to walk out and be like 'Oh my god did she just do that?' and there's so much I love about shock value, but then I really want the core to be about the music."
