Watch: Miley Cyrus Covers Pearl Jam in Her Backyard for MTV Unplugged!

October 23, 2020

Miley Cyrus recently did a backyard edition of MTV Unplugged and absolutely killed it. Check out her cover of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe”!

These “Backyard Sessions” are nothing new to Cyrus, she’s been doing them for the last decade. And how about the backdrop? Lush tropical trees, the day transforming to dusk. Nothing wrong with beautiful scenery.

For what it’s worth, Pearl Jam took to Twitter to applaud the performance.


That Pearl Jam cover wasn’t the only cover Cyrus broke out for this MTV Unplugged special. She also did The Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane”, and Britney Spears’ “Gimme More”. You really can’t argue Cyrus’ talent.


MTV Unplugged Setlist:
Gimme More (Britney Spears cover)
These Days (Jackson Browne cover)
Sweet Jane (The Velvet Underground cover)
Just Breathe (Pearl Jam cover)
Communication (The Cardigans cover)
I Got So High That I Saw Jesus (Noah Cyrus cover) (with Noah Cyrus)
Midnight Sky

This past weekend, Cyrus was part of the #SOSFest, performing at The Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood. She ripped through covers of The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” and The Cranberries’ “Zombie”.

What’s the best cover song you can think of? Gotta hand it to Miley, this Pearl Jam cover is absolutely fantastic! What. A. Voice.
