Kids' Choice Awards: Miley Cyrus still embarrassed about crying at 2009 show [Video]

When Miley Cyrus started crying after being named the favorite female singer at the 2009 Kids' Choice Awards, critics lambasted her for taking such a light event so seriously.

Before heading into this year's ceremony, where the singer and actress was nominated for three prizes, Cyrus shuddered in embarrassment at the memory of the emotional moment.

Photo-gallery-kca "Let's not talk about the crying. I don't know why that happened," she said, laughing on the orange carpet on Saturday afternoon. "That was like bad teenage hormones kicked in where I was just like, so touched."

"And maybe it was partly The Rock in a dress matching me--that was kind of interesting," she added, referring to that year's host Dwayne Johnson's get-up as he presented her with the award. (You can watch the whole event unfold in this YouTube clip.)

"It's just from the fans," the 18-year-old said. "And that's what makes me the happiest."
