The singer also donned a black wig, a cowboy hat and dark shades while Fallon rocked a denim jacket while the pair took their performance on the subway NY. They were backed up by a guitarist and a drummer and Fallon was playing the tambourine. As for Miley she was rocking the “Jolene” cover and it didn’t take long for the passers-by to notice her. By the end of the performance they had a big crowd and then took off their wigs.
“This is my first time [playing] at the subway station,” Cyrus yelled out. “This is exciting s**t for me!”
Later in the episode, Miley joined in on a fun installment of “Google Translate Songs” for songs that had been translated in other languages and then back into English. The singer totally rocked “The Shape Of You” by Ed Sheeran which was translated as “Your Body’s Curves.”
Miley also released Inspired and performed it at the One Love Manchester fundraising concert on Friday in honor of Gay Pride Month. She revealed that she will be donating all the proceeds from the song to her Happy Hippie Foundation. It’s an organization that Miley set up back in the 2014 to help fight for the rights of homeless youths and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and the LGBTQ community as a whole.
“SURPRISE! In celebration of #Pride and the desperate cry for more love in this world #Inspired is OUT NOW,” she wrote. “I will be donating my portion of any proceeds to @happyhippiefdn so we can continue our fight against injustice and bring food, shelter and most importantly hope to homeless youth everywhere!”
The representatives of her foundation wrote on the Instagram page, “@mileycyrus (has) made a donation in your honor to continue supporting our work with homeless and LGBTQ youth and to celebrate this song’s message of hope, love and unity.”
At the One Love Manchester gig she also raised money for the ones affected by the bombing after Ariana Grande’s concert on May 22. Cyrus performed Happy with Pharell Williams, and also a cover of Crowded House’s Don’t Dream It’s Over with Grande.
