With a national buzz continuing to fester over Miley Cyrus’ performance on the VMAs, it appears that her dad, Billy Ray, still doesn’t know what to say about it.

Billy Ray was set to appear on “Piers Morgan Live” Tuesday night, but cancelled the interview at the very last minute. According to E! News, his cancellation was so late that the show included a promo featuring the singer in the show’s opening tease.

Morgan did not announce the cancellation until there were about 15 minutes left on the series with no official reason given to the audience. That said, the host told viewers that Billy Ray probably had no words about his daughter’s raunchy segment on the MTV special.

“I’m not sure he’s quite worked out what his explanation is yet,” Morgan said, “so we’ve decided to postpone it. We are going to get the first interview. I know he’s watching tonight, so, Billy Ray, good evening, and when you’re ready, we will talk about this.”
