In Manhattan, Lady Gaga is currently shutting down Roseland Ballroom with a seven-gig residency. Over in Queens, the latest Cirque du Soleil offering, Amaluna, started swinging into action at Citi Field. But there is no doubt: The biggest spectacle hitting the tri-state area this week was last night’s New Jersey leg of Miley Cyrus’s Bangerz tour. Thousands of “Smilers”—the nickname for Cyrus’s rabid, mostly teenage and female fanbase—descended upon the Izod Center, and the sights they saw read off like a list from SNL city correspondent Stefon. This show has everything: pink gorillas, purple sharks, a 60-foot-tall inflatable dog, marijuana-shaped bling, a slide made to look like Cyrus's tongue, a dancing little person dressed up as the Liberty Bell, twerking galore and the pièce de résistance, Cyrus riding off into the night on an enormous flying hot dog.

Amid the mayhem, there were also calmer, more reflective moments. On Tuesday, Cyrus’s beloved dog, Floyd, passed away, and the singer referenced her struggles to perform while mourning her loss. Her emotions came to a head during a four-song mini-set of covers played at the back of the arena’s ground floor, tears streaming down her face as she tackled Bob Dylan’s sadly fitting "You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” and Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness.”

Still, Cyrus charged through and finished with an encore parade of hits—“We Can’t Stop,” “Wrecking Ball” and “Party in the U.S.A.” The “Smilers” left satisfied and are surely game-planning for Saturday night’s follow-up performance at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
