Miley Cyrus is host and musical guest on the premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” and as a new promo attests, just about anything can happen. The idea alone makes Miley a wild card that is sure to have pearl-clutchers wringing their hands.

Cyrus created an uproar when she hosted the MTV Music Video Awards back in August.

Her costumes were not only skimpy, but she also flashed one of her bare breasts for like a nano-second. She touched off, well, not exactly a torrent of complaints; more like 20 or so with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Oh… and Miley’s bete noir, the conservative Parents Television Council blasted her for “blatant sexualization” and glorifying illegal drug use. Miley made a few pot jokes.

Actually, the number of complaints were minuscule compared to her finger wagging, twerking performance with Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV VMAs. So possibly Miley’s act is becoming the new norm.

It’s doubtful she’ll get naked on national television, but judging from the promo, the 22-year-old singer will keep things interesting “with or without clothes, we’re not sure yet,” Miley joked. “We’ll see.”

Taran Killam serves as her foil in the Season 41 promo. The show airs Saturday (Oct. 3) on NBC.
