Miley Cyrus delivered a stellar performance on Saturday night during the NCAA men’s final four concert.
Cyrus, 28, took the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to perform some classic rock and roll songs for an audience of socially-distanced frontline workers. The concert took place after the Baylor-Houston game, which ended in Baylor advancing to the championship game against Gonzaga on Monday.
Cyrus, dressed in a black vest, trousers and a pair of lace-up vinyl boots, played versions of several vintage hits, including Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and “Don’t Stop Me Now,” Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen,” and Blondie’s “Heart of Glass.”She also took on some of her own hits, such as “Wrecking Ball.”
Miley Cyrus proved why she is just “one of the boyz” this weekend with a little help from Lil Nas X.
The “Plastic Hearts” singer channeled her southern roots as she posed atop an old car in a cutoff muscle tee matched with shredded baggy jeans; the outfit also included a backward trucker hat and a new set of sneakers.
Courtesy of her friend and fellow musician Lil Nas X, the shoes are a newly released design that have been causing quite the stir this week. The MSCHF x Lil Nas X “Satan Shoes” reimagine a classic Nike Air Max 97 silhouette with black uppers and red detailing, finished off with a symbolic charm.
Anyone hoping to see Miley Cyrus among the small crowd of faces at this year’s Grammy Awards will have to wait until at least next year. The singer isn’t at the Los Angeles ceremony tonight because she isn’t nominated or performing. Cyrus’ November 2020 album Plastic Hearts isn’t eligible for the ceremony this year, as it was released after the September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020 window.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Grammy producers are only allowing presenters, nominees, and performers to attend in person. “The performers and nominees are each other’s audience,” Grammy Awards executive producer Ben Winston told Variety before the show, “so it’s a room of incredible musicians, all safely distanced from each other, and every 45 minutes a new four groups come in and the [previous] four go out.”
Cyrus did recently release her music video for “Angels Like You,” which was shot at a concert she was able to do that was COVID-19 restriction compliant.
