Miley Cyrus' father thinks her boyfriend is "really great".

Billy Ray Cyrus is pleased his 18-year-old daughter has reunited with Liam Hemsworth - who she split from last November after 18 months of dating - and is looking forward to seeing the Australian actor in forthcoming movie 'The Hunger Games'.

He told E! Online: "He's a great guy. He's solid. He's got great character.

"Have you read that script? The Script is killer, and Liam is going to knock it out of the park. He's a tremendous talent.

"And I have to tell you, on or off the record, he's just a good guy. He's just a really good guy. I really like him a lot."

Meanwhile, Miley - who is currently touring in Australia - has admitted she is nervous about performing in front of Liam's parents Leonie and Craig in Melbourne tomorrow (23.06.11) because of her raunchy stage costumes.

She told radio station 2DayFM: "I'm really nervous about it. I'm going to be right on front of them in my 'Can't Be Tamed' outfit. Oh my God.

"I hate it when people I know are right there in front of me in the audience."

Billy Ray is not the only member of Miley's family to praise Liam.

Her brother Trace recently said: "We're homies. I support my sister in anything she does.

"Everything is good. We're tight, so that's all the matters. Life is good, so I can't complain."
