UPDATED: Miley Cyrus Tapes Performance For 'American Idol'

Miley Cyrus is coming to “American Idol,” Access Hollywood has learned from sources close to the show.

The 16-year-old superstar, who is gearing up for the release of “Hannah Montana The Movie,” pre-taped a performance of her hit song, “The Climb,” for the hit FOX reality competition on Wednesday night. The performance will air on April 15.

She taped the performance on Wednesday night, prior to the audience taking their seats. But despite the empty venue, Miley was still nervous about her performance.

“Walking on to stage wish me luck xoxo,” the pop star posted on her Twitter account before taking the stage. “Getting nervous! Time for idol!!!”

Miley isn’t the first contender to pre-tape a performance on “Idol.” Recently, “Idol” alumni Jennifer Hudson and David Cook both pre-recorded performances for the show.

This coming Friday, Miley will wrap up a busy week by heading to Access Hollywood and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Her big film premiere will be Thursday night in Hollywood. Tune in on Monday to see what happened during the pop star’s special visit to our set.
