The iHeartRadio Music Awards proved to be a family affair for the Cyrus crew!

Noah Cyrus, 17, took to the stage for her debut performance at the annual award show, and her sister Miley and her parents Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus were all front and center to support the singer.

“I’m really happy to have my sister here with me. My dad is here, he’ll be watching. My mom. So I’m really excited,” Cyrus told PEOPLE before the show kicked off on Sunday in Inglewood, California.

Noah and Miley proved to be the ultimate sister goals at the event, with the 24-year-old wearing an “I [heart] Noah” shirt — which Noah called “fun” and “really cute” — as she presented the teen, saying of her sister, “She’s who I want to be when I grow up. And that’s saying a lot because she’s a lot younger than me.”

Noah performed her 2016 track “Make Me (Cry)” with Labrinth. And as the star strutted her stuff across the stage, Miley was seen holding a sign that read “I [heart] Noah Cyrus.”

After the performance, Noah returned to her table, chatting with her family and hugging her father,

The singer told PEOPLE that Billy Ray gave her a bit of advice before the show, telling her to “Just look like Elvis!”

“My dad’s advice was to do the Elvis hand and to perform like Elvis — that’s his big advice for the night,” she joked to PEOPLE.

‪We love @noahcyrus !!! #iHeartAwards
