Miley Cyrus dedicated her latest performance of “Malibu” to the victims of the Manchester bombing and Ariana Grande
During last night’s finale of The Voice, Miley Cyrus paid tribute to victims of the Manchester attack with a special performance of her new track “Malibu.”
The singer’s move comes after it was reported that 22 people had lost their lives following a suicide bombing in Manchester at the end of a concert being put on by fellow popstar Ariana Grande. Miley, along with stars like Katy Perry, Lorde, and Taylor Swift have all sent tributes, thoughts, and prayers to those affected by what happened on Monday night. Ariana herself shared a brief but heartfelt message to her fans on social media noting that she felt “broken” by what had happened at her show.
Taking the stage during the finale episode of The Voice, Miley Cyrus, who has been acting as a coach on the reality TV contest, stood in front of a waterfall, luscious greenery and flowers for the performance. All dressed in white, she dedicated the track to those impacted by Monday’s heinous events.
“I’d like to dedicate this song to my good friend, Ariana Grande, and everyone who experienced that horrific attack yesterday," Miley said. "Our hearts are with you."

Meanwhile, despite reports, it’s unclear whether Ariana Grande will continue on with her Dangerous Woman tour. While it appears that the singer has returned to the U.S. to be with her loved ones, she is still scheduled to perform at London’s O2 arena on Thursday and Friday this week.
