Miley and the queens fierce the house down with a performance of "DOO It."

Anyone betting Miley was going to go leave her wild-child side at home would have lost money.

The “Wrecking Ball” singer gave a surprise performance of new song, “DOOO It,” with RPDR stars Alexis Mateo, Alyssa Edwards, Carmen Carerra, Cortney Act, Delta Worke, Gia Gunn, Miss Fame, Trinity K. Bonet, Vivacious and others.

Cyrus was also joined by Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne, who handled her a confetti weiner that spewed more party favors.

“Do It” is a beat-driven banger that underscores the singer’s attitude, as she sings “Yeah, I smoke pot/ yeah, I love peace/ but I don’t give a f*ck/ I ain’t no hippie.”
