Miley Cyrus Covers The Beatles With Flaming Lips at BBMAs


Miley Cyrus‘ live shows are pretty visually out there, so it’s no surprise she turned to one of the most infamous psychedelic songs to perform at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.

Along with The Flaming Lips, Miley — wearing lots of glittery gold streamers and face paint — covered The Beatles classic, “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.”

Although Miley wasn’t actually in Las Vegas for the BBMAs, her quirky-yet-stellar performance was broadcast via satellite from Manchester, England, where she’s been on her Bangerz tour.

The 21-year-old has been a long-time fan of the band. In fact, after her beloved dog Floyd died recently, she turned to the Flaming Lips’ catalogue to get her through.

“Floyd and I always listened to the Flaming Lips,” she said. “So now when I listen to that music, I totally feel the presence of him still being there, you know?”
