MTV set to air ‘Unplugged’ set with Miley Cyrus

By Andrew Wilson,

The MTV Unplugged series has seen notable artists such as Eric Clapton, Aerosmith and Nirvana reimagine some of their greatest hits and covers into a stripped-down, nearly all acoustic set, giving a more intimate feel to the listener and viewer. During Monday’s MTV show Teen Wolf, the one-time all-music cable station announced Miley Cyrus is the next to take on the series with Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged set to air at the end of January.

The Hollywood Reporter noted that the special will “showcase a more intimate side of Cyrus,” and will also include special guests. Although there are no specifics yet, the set list is speculated to include some of the twerking-goddess’ older material, songs of Bangerz, and a couple cover songs as well.

Cyrus may have showed at least one of these stripped-down versions already when she performed and hosted Saturday Night Live, singing an all-acoustic version of “We Can’t Stop.” A hint at a cover might have been seen when Cyrus stopped by BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge where Direct Lyrics reported the singer took on Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness.”

Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged will air on Wednesday January 29 at 9pm EST/PST.
