Sitting with Duff for the inspiring show, Cyrus even admitted that the "only reason,quot; he took on the role was so he could "copy,quot; it. Looking forward to starting at Disney like Younger star, Cyrus recalled auditioning for the hit Disney Channel series and channeled his inner Lizzie through the process.
"But the only reason I wanted it was to be able to do whatever you did," he shared. "And really, I don't think I cared about being an actress or a singer. I just wanted to copy you no matter what."
Seizing the moment to honor his hero, Cyrus continued: "So I just wanted to thank you again for inspiring me. I would never be sitting here, being able to be a light if it weren't for you and showing me how to do that."
Humiliated by Cyrus' kind words, Hilary said, "First of all, you are so sweet, and I feel like I've known you for so long. Just by hearing you say that, I feel like you've been such a bright light and you've made so many choices that They have been so bold and you are an inspiration to me and to all of us, and you still are. "

In addition to proving that she was Duff's biggest fan, Cyrus admitted that she saw the A Cinderella story star in concert on the day. "I wanted to tell you that I came to your concert when I was 11 years old and I told you I was wearing a plaid skirt and Uggs for the show because you were wearing a plaid skirt and Uggs."
"And from the nosebleed seats, I was hoping you would notice me and say, 'Hey girl, nice Uggs!' I don't know what I was thinking, but I was obsessed with your shirt," she continued. "I was dazzled and it said 'Nashville', and immediately I went and bought a dazzling one and stayed up all night keeping everything I owned."
Acknowledging the moment of the full circle, Cyrus joked, "Okay, just so my fans know: You can go from stalking someone behind their tour bus to FaceTiming live on Instagram."
