Miley Cyrus reminded the class of 2020 that it’s all about the climb during her #Graduation2020 performance.
Honoring the graduates around the world that have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, the Disney alum sang a moving rendition of her 2009 hit “The Climb” to celebrate those who were not able to attend their graduations.
“Hello to all the graduates out there. I’m truly honored to celebrate each and every one of you high school and college seniors and all that you’ve accomplished,” she shared during the stream available on Facebook Watch. “As I was thinking about you, the class of 2020 and how you inspire me, I knew I wanted to share this song with you. It feels full of a new meaning. Keep the faith, keep on moving, keep climbing, here’s ‘The Climb.'”

Dua Lipa recently did an interview with Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she was asked about her song with Miley Cyrus.
There were some songs that didn’t make the album with Normani and Miley Cyrus. Will those be on the deluxe?
Well the one with Miley that we did together, we actually ended up deciding that we wanted to get into the studio and do something different – but we actually hadn’t had the chance to get back in and work on something new. So hopefully we’ll do something – I guess once quarantine is over, we can all hang out again. We’re hoping to do that.
Are you excited for a Miley Cyrus & Dua Lipa collab?

Miley Cyrus Plans Her Next Act—Without Leaving Home
Writing, directing and hosting a talk show, all while on lockdown, Cyrus has a found a new way to inspire and uplift her fans. What does it mean for her future?
Miley Cyrus first rose to stardom as a young teen, playing the title role on Hannah Montana, the popular Disney sitcom that ran from 2006 to 2011. On the show, she played a regular girl who secretly moonlights as a pop star. Then, as she entered her 20s, Cyrus herself emerged as a fully formed, grown-up pop star, crashing into the millennial zeitgeist with hits like “Wrecking Ball.” Since the early days of the Covid-19 crisis, however, the 27-year-old has been experimenting with a new role: talk show host. “It’s hilarious people call this a TV show when it’s just Instagram Live,” Cyrus says from isolation at her home in Calabasas, California, where on weekdays at 11:30 a.m. she has been broadcasting her interview program, Bright Minded: Live with Miley, to her 107 million followers. The show is also uploaded to her YouTube channel. (Full disclosure: I am YouTube’s director of fashion and beauty.)
Sitting next to a fire pit that lent the performance a red glow, Cyrus and her socially distanced guitarist Andrew Watt (who previously revealed he tested positive to COVID-19) delivered a faithful rendition of the 1975 single, with Cyrus harmonizing along with the riff at the song’s end.
This isn’t Cyrus’ first time tackling a Pink Floyd classic live: In September 2019, at Las Vegas’ iHeartRadio Music Festival, the singer added the band’s “Comfortably Numb” (and Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”) to her set list.
The “Wish You Were Here” performance marks the second time SNL at Home has recruited an artist to play an acoustic cover of a topical classic rock song: Last episode, it was Coldplay’s Chris Martin covering Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm.”

On a scale of one to Jeff Goldblum, how high are your energy levels right now? Before you answer, consider the facts of today: it’s a Friday, you just got paid, it’s also November, there are two months left in the decade and a brand-new jazz album is set to soundtrack your next soirée. Did we mention it’s by Jeff Goldblum and The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra? Did we also mention that it includes collaborations with artists such as Gregory Porter and Miley Cyrus? And a swooning lullaby from the man of the hour himself? So! Much! Joy!

On Friday, Miley Cyrus released the music video for her new breakup anthem “Slide Away.”
In the clip, the pop star — decked in a gold lamé jumpsuit — deals with the aftermath of a house party as she goes for a swim in a backyard pool, which is strewn with empty bottles and red cups from the bash.
The visuals, directed by Alexandre Moors, match the pensive lyrics of the track.
Miley Cyrus surprised fans by unexpectedly releasing a new single titled ‘Slide Away’ this weekend (16th August), shortly after her break-up from husband, Liam Hemsworth, could the song be related to Liam?
It is unsure whether the new single is from the next two EP’s which are both expected to drop in the next few months to make up the album ‘She Is: Miley Cyrus’ along with the first EP ‘She Is Coming’ which dropped back in May.
