Miley Cyrus feels 'connected' to her dead dog after performing at a concert last night.
The 20-year-old star took to the stage for the VH1 Divas event, performing a rendition of Billy Idol's Rebel Yell.

'feeling connected to my baby girl Lila after tonight. i know she's up in doggy heaven proud of her mommy for staying strong (sic),' she shared with her Twitter followers.
The Can't Be Tamed singer has always been close to her pets and often posts pictures of her dogs online.
Last week, Miley shared a picture of herself cuddling two of her other puppies.
'This is just what mommy needed. These precious babies still here on earth are just what the doctor ordered. #pupsheal (sic),' she wrote.
The former Hannah Montana star seems to have taken the death of her beloved pet very badly and has posted several sad messages since she passed away.
Many of the singer's fans have been offering virtual support by posting sympathetic responses.
'stay strong ? (sic),' one user said, while another added: 'OMG I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.'
Yorkshire terrier Lila was taken to hospital with a mystery ailment in October.
Miley is still a proud mom to pups Ziggy, Floyd, Happy and Mary Jane.
