All hail queen Miley! The ‘Bangerz’ star surprised us when she took the stage during ‘SNL”s 40th Anniversary, covering Paul Simon’s ’50 Ways To Leave Your Lover’. She gave a show-stopping and passionate performance, singing straight from her soul.
Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special got even more exciting when Miley Cyrus, 22, gave a surprise performance of Paul Simon‘s folksy song “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover,” showing off her incredible talent. Miley surprised us earlier in the night on the Feb. 15 special, but this one completely blew us away and reinforced why she is one of today’s top artists.
Miley Cyrus’s ‘SNL 40’ Performance — Covers Paul Simon
Was this Miley’s best performance yet? The Grammy-nominated singer took the stage in a white hot pantsuit with floral imprints on the collar — and tons of earrings to add to her boho look. Her vocals were the perfect arrangement for this song and her pitch was on point during its entirety.
She was backed by a folk band, which even included Fred Armisen casually playing tambourine in the background. (What a boss!)
Miley got really into the song as well, literally singing her soul out! Her passion carried through during this song and you could tell she enjoyed every minute of being on stage — which is why we think it might be one of her best performances to date!
We were, however, expecting a cameo from Paul himself since he dueted with Paul McCartney during the opening, but we guess Paul thought Miley had it covered!
Miley Cyrus Crashes Opening Monologue On ‘SNL 40’
Miley surprised us earlier in the night when she crashed the opening monologue, rocking some badass suspenders might we add, letting her tongue hang out and all!
Miley’s hilarious appearance shocked people on stage including Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, Paul McCartney, and more. But Miley had the audience laughing in no time with her quick comedic timing.
