The pair recently collaborated on Ronson’s new track ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart‘, along with the cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’. Lennon’s son Sean also worked on the new version of the festive hit.
Now, Ronson and Cyrus have aired the two songs during an appearance on Saturday Night Live. After being introduced by host Matt Damon, the musicians performed ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ – backed by strings and car chase footage that features in the single’s official video.
Later, they returned to the stage with ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ and were joined by Sean Ono Lennon on backing vocals and guitar.
The second performance was introduced by Pete Davidson, who had worried fans earlier in the day by posting online that he didn’t “want to be on this earth anymore“.
Elsewhere on the show, Matt Damon played a Weezer superfan in a sketch, while another skit saw Theresa May interview Lord Voldemort and David Cameron.
