Dusting through the back-catalog of Miley Cyrus performances, there’s a particular video camped out on YouTube that’s reached well over one million likes. It’s set in the serene of nature, hues of brown from the overarching trees matching a messy bun as her vocals reach their full potential in an acoustic version of her godmother’s, Dolly Parton’s “Joelene.” For lack of a better word, it’s iconic.
We’re not the only ones who believe so, as MTV has sent in the time-machine for the second round of covers. This time, the background is a tad different, as we’ll see a glimpse into Cyrus’ abode. There will be dance beats through pop Queen’s Britney Spears “Gimme More” to the genre Cyrus has been reveling in lately, rock with Pearl Jam, the Cardigans, and more. To later reprise some of her hit singles in the same stripped-down tone, including “Midnight Sky.”
