Miley Cyrus & Flaming Lips Perform ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’

Sun, May 18, 2014 10:37pm EDT by 21 Comments

Even though Miley’s album is full of hits, she opted to go with a way different route for the year’s BBMA performance — and took on a Beatles classic!

Miley Cyrus was joined on stage in England for a remote performance with The Flaming Lips to perform one of our favorite Beatles songs, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds!” She was wearing quite the outfit — she looked like a gold sparkly bird!

Miley Cyrus’ Performance At Billboard Awards

What a different kind of performance from Miley! Live from a stage in England, Miley had pink stripes on her face and a black leotard under a huge gold jacket. Wayne Coyne, from The Flaming Lips stood barefoot next to her also singing, wearing a similar outfit which was silver. It had to be the strangest outfits we’ve every seen, but it was pretty great — they sang the Beatles classic flawlessly.

This is actually not the first time they’ve collaborated on stage! The Flaming Lips are releasing a Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band tribute album, and they recorded with Miley for it.

Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd from the band joined her during her Bangerz tour on multiple times where they performed “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1,” as well as “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”

Wayne complimented her in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, so it’s definitely going to a be a great collaboration.

“I like her aesthetic more than a Lady Gaga, who this year to me feels like, ‘Take me serious’ and Miley’s like, ‘I don’t give a fuck,’ which to me is always a lot more fun,” he said. “I really like that thing where the people are inside the rainbow and they walk around. I just like that sort of stuff.”

What did you think of their collaboration, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

I think she’s the scum of the earth and shouldn’t be aloud to live

don’t the Rolling Stones already own the giant lips and tongue trade mark? also anyone sounds good with a pitch-correcting microphone, try singing without one then see what she sounds like,

I’m not a fan of hers but at least she wasn’t twerking, sticking her tongue out or rubbing herself and others with a foam finger (plus all the other stuff she’s done). I didn’t mind her voice on this. She was on key and didn’t fall over drunk or stoned. Just a weird outfit and makeup. She’s done much worse. I could tolerate it for a change.

I am not sure what it was exactly that I seen last night from Miley?! I guess I just feel bad for her! She is a beautiful talented young lady and if what she wants is for people to talk about her and stay in the media well I guess thats fine. But If I had her talent I would want it to be because of that not what hideous outrageous thing I may do or wear next!! Its a waste of talent really, I cant watch someone behave that way and focus on anything but how rediculous it is!!
