Miley Cyrus Auditions For ‘Hannah Montana’ In Viral Video
Miley Cyrus’ original Hannah Montana audition tape has resurfaced, going viral and sparking fan discussions on Twitter.
Miley Cyrus Is Adorable In This Hannah Montana Audition Tape
Cyrus auditioned for her Disney Channel original series in 2005 when she was just 12 years old. Then a young girl, Cyrus won the part of the regular girl slash undercover pop star alongside her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, who got the part of her dad and is also featured in the audition (they perform a secret handshake).
The audition, which has been up on YouTube for years, went viral this week, no doubt thanks to the Disney Channel’s decision to air old Hannah Montana episodes on Wednesday, June 3. The reruns prompted the Twitter hashtag, #HannahMontanaMemories.

Hannah Montana, which ran on the Disney Channel from 2006 to 2011, proved infinitely successful for both Cyrus and Disney. Cyrus had her first starring role in a feature film as Hannah Montana in Hannah Montana: The Movie and the show helped her launch a successful music career.
Of course, the Cyrus we know now barely resembles the one who originally auditioned for Hannah Montana ten years ago. After leaving her Disney days behind her, Cyrus shed her good girl image and reinvented herself as a pop star provocateur of sorts with her album, Bangerz.
