Put her tongue-wagging, twerking and twisted performances aside and you’ll be surprised to find out that Miley Cyrus can actually sing. By stripping away that controversial persona, you’ll discover a talented star.
Miley’s talent has been overshadowed by her crazy publicity stunts and now it’s time to bring the stripped back version of her to light. Whether it’s her backyard sessions or her live lounge performances, Miley pulls off a stunning performance. Don’t believe us? Here’s every time Miley Cyrus’ voice was actually amazing…
Miley Cyrus covers Jolene
Give Miley a country classic and she’ll handle it like a pro! In 2012, Miley covered her godmother’s classic Jolene. The popstar performed her very own rendition of the Dolly Parton hit and proved her strength as a vocalist. We bet you’re already seeing her in a different light!
Miley Cyrus covers You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go
You won’t believe your eyes or ears after watching this! Miley took on the Bob Dylan song back in 2012 and absolutely nailed it with her raw tone. This clip proves that she doesn’t need to twerk or dance with blow-up dolls to impress an audience. Her voice alone is captivating enough!
Miley Cyrus covers Summertime Sadness
In between all the madness in 2013 like twerking on Robin Thicke and causing controversy with her We Can’t Stop video, Miley let her real talent shine through with a performance of Lana Del Rey’s Summertime Sadness. This interpretation was that good, it was almost better than the original. Miley’s voice was pure gold during these 4 rare minutes. If only we could hear more of it.
Miley Cyrus covers Lilac Wine
This has got to be our favorite Backyard Session by Miley Cyrus. It’s hard to believe the Do It artist could sing with such passion. Overproduced music might make Miley some money but it’s definitely not where her talent lies. We just wish she could start making music like this instead of going for the shock factor. This was beautiful!
Miley Cyrus covers Don’t Dream It’s Over
Miley showed that she has the voice to pull off an acoustic during her Backyard Session of Don’t Dream It’s Over alongside Ariana Grande. Miley’s low voice and sultry sound doesn’t get the credit it deserves. We admire how much soul she put into this cover. We want to hear more from this side of Miley!
Miley Cyrus covers No Freedom
This kind of genre really highlights Miley’s voice. She gave a heartfelt performance of Dido’s No Freedom and sent shivers down listeners’ spines. After watching this clip, you’ll notice that the Wrecking Ball star has a bunch of talent that sadly goes unrecognized.
Miley’s voice is much better than you anticipated, right?
Behind her bizarre antics and craziness, it’s clear to see that Miley Cyrus is actually an extremely talented vocalist. It’s a total shame that this side of her is kept hidden away. Would you like to see more of this side of Miley?
