Miley Cyrus & David Byrne Perform David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” on New Year’s Eve

Last night, Miley Cyrus and David Byrne per­formed David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” on the NBC hol­i­day spe­cial Miley’s New Year’s Eve Par­ty. And they also treat­ed view­ers to a per­for­mance of “Everybody’s Com­ing to My House,” from Byrne’s 2018 album Amer­i­can Utopia. Not a bad way to send off 2022.

Before leav­ing 2022 behind, we’ll also flag anoth­er Miley Cyrus collaboration–a per­for­mance from this sum­mer’s cel­e­bra­tion of the life of Tay­lor Hawkins. Below, watch her take the stage with Def Lep­pard and per­form “Pho­to­graph” at the 3:45. No doubt, she can sing.

Hap­py 2023.

    Byrne dances like the whitest guy in the room, fresh off hip replace­ment surgery. And was that lip-synched?

  • Mike Bean says:

    Any of David Bowie songs and nev­er be sung by Miley Cyrus any oth­er singer but not her please that voice is just hor­ri­ble

  • Dorothy says:

    I still don’t under­stand why so many musi­cians cel­e­brat­ed Tay­lor Hawkins. He was a eff­ing junkie! He died of an OD! He had 13 dif­fer­ent sub­stances in his body when he died. Includ­ing hero­in and coke! Why would you want to pay trib­ute to that? I feel bad for his fam­i­ly. Don’t up play a junkie,his fam­i­ly should have sent him to rehab. No one can be that addict­ed to drugs and your loved ones don’t know about it. They just chose not to see it. And so did all of those musi­cians that played a trib­ute to him. Todays sad soci­ety, and not want­i­ng to see the truth…

  • Tara says:

    Dorothy I so hope you nev­er have a loved one who bat­tles with addic­tion. You do not under­stand it enough to talk about it and you come across igno­rant.

    You are so right. Sad for the kids to see all this pos­i­tive about a guy that was so a neg­a­tive role mod­el

    And the award for most aston­ish­ing dis­play of igno­rance in a com­mu­ni­ty forum goes to …


    You did it! amongst always stiff com­pe­ti­tion, you pulled out a win. Dotards of the world will hon­our your name for­ev­er.

    That sound was­n’t about Miley — it was about David Byrne. What a WONDERFUL vehi­cle for him. Lit­er­al­ly moved by sev­er­al clips I’ve seen from the show — thanks Miley!
