Miley Cyrus and Adam Sandler Cover Dido's 'No Freedom' to 'Remember All Those Lost' in Las Vegas Shooting

Cyrus also performed her 2009 single "The Climb" on Monday's show "to encourage unity, peace & hopefulness"

Miley Cyrus kicked off her weeklong “Miley Week” at The Tonight Show on Monday with a special duet featuring Adam Sandler in honor of the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting.

After host Jimmy Fallon made brief remarks about the attack, the singer, 24, and the actor, 51, opened the late-night show with a performance of Dido’s 2013 single “No Freedom.”

Cyrus, who recently released her album Younger Now, previously performed a cover of Dido’s “No Freedom” during her backyard sessions in May 2015.

“This morning we woke up to the news of another senseless shooting — this time in Las Vegas. In the face of tragedies and acts of terror, we need to remember that good still exists in this world. We’re here to entertain you tonight and that’s what we’re going to do,” Fallon, 43, said.

Sandler, 51, was the night’s scheduled guest along with Dustin Hoffman to promote their Netflix comedy, The Meyerowitz Stories.

The Voice coach also performed her 2009 single “The Climb” on Monday night.
