Miley Cyrus kept it classic while performing for a socially distanced audience at her NCAA Final Four concert on Saturday (April 3).
Cyrus kicked off the show by strutting out of her dressing room at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, looking every inch a rockstar with her blonde mullet, black vest, tight black pants and black gloves as her band rocked out.
By the time the star made it onto the stage, the tune had transitioned to Queen’s hit “We Are the Champions.” That led into the star’s performances of the band’s always popular “We Will Rock You,” and then “Don’t Stop Me Now.”
In addition to Queen, Cyrus covered other artists as well, including Blondie’s “Heart of Glass,” as well as “Edge of Midnight,” a mashup of Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen” and her own “Midnight Sky” off her latest album, Plastic Hearts. Speaking of her own music, Cyrus also performed a few of her own songs, including megahit “Wrecking Ball.”
As with her February TikTok Super Bowl pre-game show, Cyrus performed this concert as a tribute to the frontline workers who have worked so tirelessly during the global coronavirus pandemic.
Her set was so powerful that her name became a trending topic on social media Saturday night. Dad Billy Ray Cyrus was one of the viewers who couldn’t contain his excitement over his daughter’s performance. “Mamaw Ruthie said it best ‘ Wow Wow Wow !!!!’ Excellent performance,” he tweeted. “Thank you first responders for your service and sacrifice.”
