To accept “Video of the Year,” Miley Cyrus shocked the world.
She left her twerking ways to the 2013 VMAs and this year, delivered a heartfelt message. A former homeless youth in Los Angeles named Jesse took the stage in her place to accept her award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the U.S.
From the side of the stage, Miley teared up watching him make a call to action, directing fans to her Facebook page to join the fight to end youth homelessness.
Jesse ended with an emotional quote, “a dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is a reality.”
