E! News reports that Miley Cyrus and Madonna will perform together at Cyrus' upcoming MTV Unplugged special. The two were on a Hollywood soundstage yesterday rehearsing for the show. It's unknown what song they will perform. The special tapes tomorrow and will air Wednesday night at 9 PM.
MTV said in a statement: "The performance will showcase a more intimate side of Cyrus and feature surprise guests for an unexpected re-invention of the songs that have defined her career, including several from her No. 1 critically acclaimed album, Bangerz. Miley and her fans have always had an intimate and direct connection through her music, personality and no-holds-barred attitude and the Unplugged stage will serve as the perfect platform for her to show viewers what inspires and ignites her music and her passions."
Unplugged debuted in 1989 and has featured Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Adele and Florence + The Machine.
Madonna's most recent performance was with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at the Grammys for "Same Love". Cyrus, meanwhile, is gearing up for her 38-city Bangerz tour on February 14 in Vancouver, Canada.
Cyrus compared herself to Madonna in an interview with the New York Times last month. She said: "Last night, I was talking about some Madonna performances, and I said, 'At some point, everything becomes irrelevant.' Like, no one even thinks about when she did 'Like a Virgin' at the VMAs. That just becomes a standard, where it's just like, 'Oh, that's her thing.' So, I feel like now that I did the VMAs, that just kind of became a standard for me, and then anytime I do anything else, they're like, 'Miley kept it tame tonight.'"
