The 24th Annual Webby Awards is thrilled to honor Miley Cyrus with a 2020 Webby Special Achievement Award to recognize her creation of a positive, digital forum to connect and uplift people amid the COVID-19 outbreak through her Instagram Live show, Bright Minded: Live with Miley.
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.

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.)
Facebook is working to make things right with a special event in May called #Graduation2020: Facebook and Instagram Celebrate the Class of 2020. The live-streamed special will feature a commencement address by Oprah and appearances by Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Awkwafina, Jennifer Garner, and Simone Biles. Facebook plans to announce additional guests closer to the event.
Cyrus will be performing her hit song from Hannah Montana: The Movie, “The Climb,” with a powerful message about not giving up, during the stream. The celebrities and other guests involved will offer recognition to individual high schools and colleges throughout the U.S. on a state-by-state basis, with photos and videos of the class of 2020 as well as messages from principals and deans woven throughout.
The event will take place on Friday, May 15 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT and will take place over the course of several hours. It will be streamed over Facebook Watch, with individual clips being posted to the official Instagram account and celebrities’ handles as well. It may be an unorthodox celebration this year, but it’s a happy time nevertheless!
Miley Cyrus performed an acoustic cover of the Pink Floyd classic “Wish You Were Here” as musical guest on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live at Home.
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.”
