Miley Cyrus delivered a stellar performance on Saturday night during the NCAA men's final four concert.
Cyrus, 28, took the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to perform some classic rock and roll songs for an audience of socially-distanced frontline workers. The concert took place after the Baylor-Houston game, which ended in Baylor advancing to the championship game against Gonzaga on Monday.
Cyrus, dressed in a black vest, trousers and a pair of lace-up vinyl boots, played versions of several vintage hits, including Queen's "We Will Rock You" and "Don't Stop Me Now," Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen," and Blondie's "Heart of Glass."She also took on some of her own hits, such as "Wrecking Ball."
"⭐️ A STAR IS BORN ⭐️," the Hannah Montana alum captioned a video on Instagram that featured her walking out onto the stage.
Cyrus also shared behind-the-scenes footage from before the concert on social media, including one video of her soundcheck performance of "Don't Stop Me Now." In another post, Cyrus posed for a mirror selfie while dressed in her outfit for the outing.
Cyrus was applauded on social media for her performance. Her dad Billy Ray Cyrus wrote on Twitter, "Mamaw Ruthie said it best " Wow Wow Wow !!!!" Excellent performance #finalfour@mileycyrus @CBSI agree …Thank you first responders for your service and sacrifice. PS nice hairdo."
The Bachelorette's Tayshia Adams and Zac Clark also tuned into the show-stopping performance. "@tayshia was passed out. Miley Cyrus sang one note and she is now dancing around the room like a teenager....0 to 60 would be an understatement here...." Clark, 37, wrote on Twitter about his fiancée, 30.
Cyrus last performed for a major sporting event in February when she headlined the TikTok Tailgate at Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida. For the show, she performed hits like "High" and "Edge of Midnight" from her 2020 album Plastic Hearts, as well as past singles including "We Can't Stop."
She also covered tracks like Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole" and Dolly Parton's "Jolene" and was joined by '80s music icon Billy Idol to perform their song "Night Crawling," as well as rock superstar Joan Jett to sing "Bad Karma."
