Teen dynamo Miley Cyrus abruptly stopped a concert in New Orleans Saturday night and left the stage after announcing that she wasn't feeling well.

After an apprehensive five-minute wait, the sold-out crowd at the New Orleans Arena cheered as Miley returned to stage, New Orleans' The Times-Picayune reports. A stagehand placed a stool in the spotlights and the 15-year-old singer took a seat, telling the crowd: "Thanks, you guys. I feel a lot better, but I'm going to sit this one down."

Prior to falling ill, an energetic Cyrus had danced and belted out favorites like "Rock Star" for an hour. After returning to the stage, the teen made it through a few more songs and then her "best friend and hero," dad Billy Ray Cyrus, who was in town to perform at Family Gras, joined her for an encore, singing their duet "Ready, Set, Don't Go." The paper says that Miley told the crowd that it was a wonderful coincidence that the one time on her tour that she really needed her dad, he was there.
