Miley Cyrus loves a good cover, and we love a good Miley Cyrus cover. Luckily for us, there’s a whole library of great ones to choose from on YouTube. Cyrus is one of the most eclectic artists of her generation, singing everything from country pop, to stoner anthems and club bangers but at the end of the day, she’s a powerhouse vocalist with great tone and control. She shows that in all of its versatility when she's putting her own spin on classics.
From her Backyard Sessions, to the Happy Hippie Project, to covers added to her live show setlists, here are our favorite covers performed by Miley Cyrus.
All the way back in 2012, Miley started The Backyard Sessions, where she sang covers in her backyard. She hit it out of the park and reminded everyone that she’s got a great voice with this cover of her godmother's classic song of betrayal. This is pure country Miley at her best.
While the vocals might not be as strong as some of the others on this list, this is definitely Miley’s cutest cover. She and Ariana Grande both dressed up in kigurumis and sitting on an inflatable couch give there all for this 80s classic. Plus you get to see her flirt with Ariana, so this is a must-see.
Miley is pretty in pink in this simple and understated Tom Petty cover. Her singing is absolutely beautiful in this, and she doesn't need to do anything wild in order to show it. She brought her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus along to The Tonight Show and they both got back to their roots with this tribute.
Another rocking performance, this time live from Whisky a Go Go, Miley takes full advantage of the raspiness inherent in her voice as she absolutely wails all the way through this Cranberries alt-rock classic. Miley having fun is the best Miley, and she’s having a great time here.
