Miley Cyrus is one encouraging big sister!

The pop superstar was on hand at the iHeartRadio Music Awards March 5 to introduce her sibling Noah Cyrus’ performance — and the return of her long hair reminds us of her pre-twerking days. Wearing a “I [heart] Noah” t-shirt, the 24-year-old said, “She’s who I want to be when I grow up. And that’s saying a lot because she’s a lot younger than me. So get ready, everybody, because 2017 is about to be Noah's year."

The 17-year-old sang her first single “Make Me (Cry)” with Labrinth, and was cheered on by parents Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus in the audience.

“I’m really happy to have my sister here with me. My dad is here, he’ll be watching. My mom. So I’m really excited,” Noah told People magazine before she hit the stage on Sunday. “My dad’s advice was to do the Elvis hand and to perform like Elvis — that’s his big advice for the night.”

After crushing her performance, the teen took to Instagram to share special moments from her big debut. “Extremely grateful for my family i love you guys,” she wrote next to a photo of her squad, before adding, “Tonight felt like a damn dream. thank you so much @iheart for a night i will NEVER forget…”

Noah previously revealed some amazing words of wisdom from her sister about how to handle life in the spotlight. “Miley always says, 'Don't ever look yourself up or read your comments, because you're gonna see stuff that you don't want to see.' That's the best advice ever. If it's making me happy, then it's working,” she told Rolling Stone late last year.
