Niall Horan is an enormous Miley Cyrus fan and has shown his appreciation of her latest track, ‘Midnight Sky’, by covering it using piano and guitar and his dreamy voice on Instagram live, much to fans’ delight.
The 27-year-old is open about his massive love for Miley’s music, talking and posting about her often, and whilst chilling on live in his lounge, he decided to give his own little rendition.
Niall said: “I’ll tell you what song I’m absolutely obsessed with at the moment, is Midnight Sky.”
He began to play the chords and sing along to the chorus, and fans in the comment section was loving how much the former One Direction star was piling on praise for Miley.
Fans wrote, “he’s obsessed with Miley” and “such a fan” and if he’s chosen to stan anyone, we must say he’s chosen well.
Only last week did he praise Miley on Twitter for a performance she gave of the song, getting a message back from the lady herself with a kiss emoji.
We can’t help but let our imaginations run away with us and wonder what a collaboration between the duo would sound like.
At the end of July, Billie Eilish released her latest song “my future,” and just recently, Miley Cyruscovered a track for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. And if you’ve ever wondered what both artists would sound like singing the song together, look no further, because one fan on Twitter has taken care of that for all of us.
Twitter fan account @MileyNation13 made a mashup of Billie performing “My Future,” with Miley’s performance of the song, and the result is gorgeous.
The mashup caught the eye of Miley Cyrus and during a recent interview on UK radio station Capital FM, she called it “really, really cool.” She said, “Someone actually did this with Billie. Someone put her version with mine. I’m taking the lower octave and she’s singing up in that nice head voice, falsetto. It’s really, really cool.”
Check out the Miley/Billie (Millie?) mashup below.
Of course, we can only hope that Miley and Billie can get together one day and perform this live as a duet (or any song, really). In fact, after Cyrus had performed the song on Live Lounge, Billie sent her a beautiful flower arrangement with a sweet note that said, “Thank you for your sweet cover of ‘my future’! Hopefully we can meet soon when all of this is over.” Miley responded to the gesture by tweeting, “ROCKSTAR @billieeilish COMING THRU WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET EVVVVVVEEEER! MADE MY F***ING DAY! APPRECIATE YOU AND YOUR ART!”
Miley is getting ready to drop her new album She Is Miley Cyrus, which she has already given fans a taste of via her song “Midnight Sky.” Earlier this year during an Australian Radio interview, the singer said the project has some rock and roll with “Joan Jett vibes.” She’s also worked with star producers like Mark Ronson, Max Martin and Andrew Watt.
The one and only Miley Cyrus joined #MostRequestedLive for an interview via Zoom to talk about her hot new song, “Midnight Sky,”!
Check out some of the highlights and then watch her full interview below!
On the most unique thing about making “Midnight Sky”:
“One, I would say — something that I haven’t actually done in my career, and that I’m doing now, which I love — is taking advantage of the way that we can deliver music to our audience and to our fans. The fact that I can write a song — I only wrote the song like 4 to 6 weeks ago — and now put it out, and saying, ‘I’m talking to you in real time, I’m telling my real story,’ not something that I felt a year ago and I have outgrown, because also you’re less passionate about it. For me, it grows and evolves so quickly. This is such an amazing time that we live in that we can really talk directly to our audience.”
On self-directing the “Midnight Sky” music video:
“This is one of the proudest moment I’ve had in a really long time, when it comes up and says, ‘self-directed.’ I’ve always been kind of behind the creative — obviously half the time no one could come up with these things: I want someone to be eating a money sandwich in ‘We Can’t Stop,’ I want them to be cutting their fingers and goo coming out — so a lot of this is always coming from me. But being able to polish my craft as a filmmaker over this quarantine period, I’ve been researching and learning, doing a lot of sessions with camera operators, and directors of photography. I jumped into the deepest waters — the best way to learn how to swim — and I did, I swam, didn’t sink, so I’m really feeling lucky for that.”
On the meaning behind the disco ball in “Midnight Sky”:
“The disco ball, what it really reflects, literally, is this idea that a bunch of broken pieces can come together to make an entire being that then, when the light is shined upon this brokenness, people are really mesmerized and in awe, and drawn to — we’re drawn to each-other’s brokenness because we all connect trough the brokenness.”
On how she’s grown and what she’s learned over the last few months:
“I’ve come to the realization that I’m allowed to really love things about myself, and I’ve been writing down these qualities about myself that have nothing to do with fame or fortune, but have to do with me and my integrity as a person, and writing the things about myself that I don’t dig. One of those are — I put it in the song — ‘Can’t bite the devil on my tongue.’ I don’t like that about myself. I don’t like that tongue is driven by the devil and says things that I don’t mean to hurt people. So that’s something I’ve been working on, is watching what I say, and knowing that the words have really deep meaning.”

33. MILEY CYRUS – Billboard’s “100 Greatest Music Video Artists of All Time”
Why She’s a Video Icon: Miley has managed to make headlines with nearly every music video she drops — especially when one ushers in a new look — simultaneously inspiring spoofs and Halloween outfits for years to come.
The MTV Classic: The shocking, Terry Richardson-directed “Wrecking Ball” stands as the quite possibly only hammer-licking music video around — and proved that, if you’re Miley, you can still do the most while wearing the least.
Worth YouTubing: The video for the foreshadowing track “Can’t Be Tamed,” in which the pop star literally breaks free from her cage, serves as air-tight proof that (as Miley claims a decade later on her latest single) she was born to run. — L.H.
