Controversial singer Miley Cyrus made an age-related jibe at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammys party after her performance didn't go down too well.

She took to the stage to belt out track 'Get It Right', which apparently didn't get the rapturous applause she was hoping for.

"I hope y'all feel better than y'all look," said Cyrus, sporting a mini-dress under her fluffy coat.

"Maybe this song is better for this crowd," she said before performing Dolly Parton's 'Jolene', which earned the 21-year-old a louder applause.

Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy gala drew stars who are set to shine at the Grammy Awards and featured performances from musical dynamos such as Lionel Richie and newcomers such as Lorde and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Neil Diamond, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Metallica, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Rod Stewart were among the A-listers who attended the four-hour event at the Beverly Hilton.

Robin Thicke had the night's funniest moment when he sang 'Blurred Lines' with Pharrell Williams and T.I., who danced happily onstage. Even Jane Fonda couldn't resist the ubiquitous jam as she danced along.

The night was mixed with some dry moments and other performances that ignited the crowd -- including Fantasia's rousing rendition of 'Stormy Weather'.

"Sing it girl!" one person yelled. Others whistled.

Richie got the crowd up during 'Easy Like Sunday Morning' and 'All Night Long (All Night)', and R. Kelly was backed up by African dancers, a drummer and a choir when he performed a new song honouring the late Mandela.
