Party in the U.S.A. singer Miley Cyrus has insisted her #Getitright collaborator Pharrell Williams is her choice for "entertainer of the year" for 2013.

The 21-year-old star insists that Pharrell deserves to win Entertainment Weekly's Entertainers of the Year award.

Speaking to the publication, Cyrus said: ''I really think Pharrell [Williams] is the entertainer of the year.

''Not only for what he did on my record, but for what he did in the music industry in general with Blurred Lines and Daft Punk.''

Cyrus added: "He and I were kind of on the same path, and I think that's why he and I connected. He really feels like a brother - it's more than just us working together.

"No-one had heard from me or him in a minute, and we were just kind of brewing up what we wanted to do next and what we wanted to drop on people.

"He and I were on kind of a journey together, and I couldn't be more happy for him and what he accomplished this year in everything - in fashion, in art, everything he does."
