Miley Cyrus sings “The Climb” to honor Las Vegas shooting victims

“I could go on and on, but I’d like to get right to the point: can I give you a hug?” she continued. Nearly expectedly, it begins with an explicit refutation of the old, wild Miley: “Feels like I just woke up”, she sings on the title track, “like all this time I’ve been asleep”.

It wasn’t exactly Miley’s idea to remix the song. The Wrecking Ball singer revealed why she spies on fiancé Liam Hemsworth, the reason she was kicked out of school and her real name.

While explaining the motivation behind her new album, Cyrus said that she’s no longer running away from her “life story”.

Later on “The Tonight Showm” Cyrus also performed her song “The Climb” and dedicated it to the Las Vegas shooting victims.

Finally, Clinton herself started on her own thank-you note to “all the women and young girls out there” telling them “you are smart, strong, and deserving of every opportunity”.

“It’s hard to figure out what are the priorities”, she said.

The singer strummed an acoustic guitar as she dazzled the audience (and ever-enthusiastic host Jimmy Fallon) with her intricate, melismatic vocal runs. “4 anyone who’d like to join, I’m doing a 20 minute moment of meditation/silence/prayer on my InstagramLive for calming of the [world]”, she wrote, sharing a simple image of the peace-sign tattoo that adorns her wrist. Last month, Cyrus told The Sun on Sunday that when they broke up that “I didn’t know [we’d get back together]”.

“This morning, we woke up to the news of another senseless shooting”, a somber Jimmy Fallon said in his introduction to Cyrus’s performance.
