Washington, July 19 : Teen sensation Miley Cyrus was taken aback when she saw the unexpected turnout of fans desperate to get a glimpse of her performing at a free concert in the Big Apple.
The 'Hannah Montana' star thought that her Friday gig in New York would turn out to be a big flop, but what happened was quite contrary to what she had expected.
Her performance at Bryant Park for breakfast show Good Morning America saw the crowd pouring in from all quarters.
The singer was surprised to see thousands of fans cheering for her, despite her not performing as her TV alter-ego Hannah Montana.
Cyrus was also worried that her recent photo controversies would keep people away from the morning show.
"I was extremely nervous until today, and now I'm like so excited. Everyone actually showed up," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
She added: "I was like, OK, there are going to be two people, and they're going to be paparazzi.'"
