5 Best Moments From MTV Unplugged Presents ‘Miley Cyrus Backyard Sessions’

1. The Britney Spears cover

Cyrus strutted onto her at-home stage looking like an 80s dream in a flowy zebra-print dress, matching gloves, big black-and-white sunglasses, gold accessories and, of course, her blonde mullet and a red lip. She kicked off the show with a rocked-out rendition of Spears’ 2007 hit “Gimme More.” The dark twist on the mid-2000s pop track was made complete with Cyrus’ characteristic rasp and Southern twang.

2. Nico’s “These Days”

Following the grit of “Gimme More,” Cyrus smoothed it out with a breezy cover of Nico’s 1967 track “These Days.” Surrounded by palm trees with red paper hearts hanging from the leaves and the sunlight shining behind her, the singer had us holding onto summer as she sang, “These days I seem to think about / How all the changes came about my ways / And I wonder if I’d see another highway.”

3. Pearl Jam cover

After a quick outfit changed, Cyrus appeared at golden hour in a snakeskin gown, big gold hoops and a sparkling green eye look. She flawlessly belted Pearl Jam’s 2009 ode to gratitude, “Just Breathe,” a phrase that Cyrus also has tattooed on her ribcage.

4. Noah Cyrus joins her sister onstage

Noah, who shared her The End of Everything EP this year, joined Miley for a performance of the younger Cyrus’ “I Got So High That I Saw Jesus.” The sisters, both dressed in sleek black leather, traded harmonies for a truly angelic delivery.

5. The “Midnight Sky” closer

Cyrus closed out her Backyard Sessions with a performance of her smash recent single, “Midnight Sky.” She delivered the powerful melody underneath sparkling disco balls in a chartreuse sequined dress, swaying her hips to the beat for a glamorous end to an enchanting show.
