WATCH full Miley Cyrus’ countrified Bangerz performance on MTV Unplugged

“I tried to bring Nashville here for the night,” Miley Cyrus tells the audience during her MTV Unplugged performance, and she brought it with red gingham, glammed-out ab-baring, a Nashville worthy wig, a country twang, and, of course, horse twerking.


And it definitely worked, honestly, because she has the pipes to back up all the weird. Everything about this Unplugged performance shows that Miley has mad respect for Dolly Parton, who just happens to be her godmother/aunt. I mean, this is the girl who killed Dolly’s heartbreak anthem “Jolene” before she went on a rampage to take over the pop scene (she also performs “Jolene” on “Unplugged.”)

“I don’t think people really realize yet what a great singer and writer she really is,” Dolly told the London Evening Standard, defending her goddaughter about the post-VMA twerking backlash. “She’s just trying to find her own place and wings and learn to fly.”

So, do you think Miley’s next album should be a country album?

    I love her whole album. 🙂 Just watched the videos on MTV.

    Real classy……a madonna wannabe is a pretty sad state to be in.

    Stupid gimmicks are used to cover up a huge lack of talent.

    • Me

      I don’t agree, she has talent. Look up her cover of Jolene on YouTube. The stupid gimmicks are overshadowing her talent all due to a vain attempt to sell more albums. Sad.

      • Jamie

        You may be right, but because of the gimmicks, I won’t take her serious enough to look up anything on her.

  • Sharyn

    This is more Hannah Montana than Hannah Montana ever was.

    Don’t do drugs kids!

    She had a shot at sitting in a chair and being classy and just belting out tunes but instead turns it into a virtual Disney hour. Okay.

  • anonymous

    I don’t get what’s all the fuss about?! She is a really talented girl and for once she was covered head to toe!

  • Wow

    Omg, her Jolene performance was amazing. Then that last one was just a mess.

  • LaLa84

    This is just Miley’s attempt to shed her bubble gum Disney image. I don’t understand why everyone is so shocked.
    This is the same thing that Madonna did, Britney, Christina… the list goes on and on.
    Remember how innocent and sweet Christina appeared with her first album. People were all up in arms when she released Dirty and the video was so scandalous, dirty dancing in chaps and a leather bra? She was showing that she’s an adult, no longer a 16 year old girl.

    Miley is just trying to come into her own, this is a phase. Give her a year or two and she’ll be boring Miley and everyone will be wondering why she’s not acting a fool anymore.
