Miley Cyrus will perform a special live concert on NBC’s “Today” on Monday Oct. 7, and will also sit down for an interview with host Matt Lauer.

The interview will mark her first live TV sitdown since her controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 25.

There’s no doubt the struggling “Today” pulled out all the stops to get the big interview in an effort to regain their top spot from “Good Morning America.”

Cyrus is doing a full-on media blitz to promote her new album, which comes out on Oct. 8. She’s hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and her documentary for MTV, “Miley Cyrus: The Movement,” premiered last night.

She also graced the cover of the most recent issue of Rolling Stone.
