The Next Miley Cyrus Project was a singing contest run by American singer and actress Miley Cyrus. Sabrina Carpenter placed third in the contest.

Sabrina entered The Next Miley Cyrus Project, a singing contest run by Carpenter’s former fellow label-mate. She finished third out of more than 10,000 entries, competing with singers much older than her. “That was the start of everything musically for me,” she says. “I learned a lot about entertaining and sharing stories through your voice.”
