Cyrus’ new cover-filled special is the latest in a series of cover versions the pop singer has performed on TV in recent months, following on from renditions of Dolly Parton’s ‘Light Of A Clear Blue Morning’ and ‘Doll Parts’ by Hole among others.

Cyrus released her latest album, ‘Plastic Hearts’, in November last year. NME gave the album a four-star review upon its release, saying it “finds the pop-star-turned-rock-star going hell for leather – and when Miley Cyrus is at full throttle, it’s an absolute blast”.
