Miley Cyrus went the sentimental route last night and when she won for Video of the Year -- the biggest award of the night -- instead of tooting her own horn, the "Wrecking Ball" singer let a boy Jesse take the podium to spread awareness to youth homelessness.
Cyrus, 21, posted pictures with Jesse all night and after the show, the two went to In-N-Out Burger to celebrate.
"me and my hero at in n out celebratin ... #myfriendsplace #mtvvmas2014," she wrote next to a picture of the two.
Here's more sweet photos from the night of Jesse and Cyrus. Well played Miley, well played.
"my favorite dude ever #jesse #myfriendsplace #mtvvmas2014."
"My date :) #jesse #myfriendsplace #mtvVMAs2014."
