Whether she’s soaring seamlessly through Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” or using her perfect snarl on the Cranberries’ “Zombie,” Miley Cyrus can nail a good cover. The powerhouse added to her repertoire today by sharing a sizzling rendition of Cher’s 1998 hit “Believe”, and it’s just as great as you’d expect.
The performance is part of Stand By You, a one-hour Pride Month special set to arrive on Peacock this Friday for streaming. Cyrus stars in the special, which will also see her cover Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”, Pat Benatar’s “We Belong”, ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”, and a medley of Madonna classics. Watch her do “Believe” with help from a crew of drag queens below.
Stand By Me was filmed earlier this month at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, where nearly 2,500 vaccinated residents got to watch a stellar performance with appearances from Orville Peck and Brothers Osborne.
