After making headlines with her VMA performance, Miley Cyrus returned to MTV for her own “Unplugged” special. The 21-year-old pop princess put a country spin on her Bangerz during the one-hour show, which aired on Wednesday night.
“A lot could happen tonight, so I hope you guys are ready for that,” said Miley, who will kick off her “Bangerz” tour on Valentine’s Day.
Dressed in a red-and-white gingham jumpsuit and blonde wig, she opened with “4×4” backed by her band, Amazon Ashley, and Little Britney, and went on to perform acoustic versions of her songs including “Adore You,” “Wrecking Ball,” “Rooting for My Baby,” and “#GETITRIGHT.”
She twerked up against a two-man horse and covered her godmother Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” before closing out the show with Madonna. Clad in cowgirl attire, the pop divas grinded on each other and stuck their tongues out while singing a mashup of “Don’t Tell Me” and “We Can’t Stop.”
“I grew up listening to Madonna and a lot of what she represented for me is what I try to rep to girls now, is not being afraid of sexuality and really being who you want to be and doing what you want to do,” she told MTV.
