Miley Cyrus performed "Tiny Dancer" with Sir Elton John at the 2018 Grammys, and it brought the audience to their feet
The 2018 Grammy awards have been fill of incredible performances by amazing artists. One of our favorite parts of the show had to be when Miley Cyrus took the stage alongside Sir Elton John. Their performance at the Grammy awards was nothing short of amazing.
John started the performance sitting at the piano in a perfectly bedazzled ensemble, singing “Tiny Dancer,” one of the biggest hits of his career. A few lyrics into the song, Cyrus stepped out to sing along with him. In a pink ball gown with long, soft waves, Cyrus looked simply stunning — and the audience loved it.
Cyrus belted right along with John (not an easy feat!) thanks to her powerful vocals. Of course, she still had some quintessential “Miley” moments happening — she winked at the cameras a few times — but the focus was on the beautiful duet the whole time.
This was the second time Cyrus has performed at the Grammys — she made a now unlikely pair singing “Fifteen” with Taylor Swift back in 2009. Nearly ten years later, Cyrus showed how much she’s grown throughout her career through her impressive vocals and much more adult image.
If you’re thinking that John and Cyrus as a duo seems even more unlikely than Cyrus and Swift, you’re not alone. They’ve had two entirely different careers and a large age gap between them that left many wondering what, exactly, they were going to be doing together. According to Bustle, though, the two “go way back” and are actually pretty close. Oh, and the fact that John recently announced his retirement makes this even more special — it’s probably his last Grammys appearance after an unbelievable career.
If you loved the performance as much as we did, then you’ll be glad to know that this isn’t the only time you’ll see Cyrus and John together. Two days after the Grammys, Cyrus will be part of the taping of Elton John: I’m still standing — A Grammy Salute. The tribute video will air later this year, and Cyrus will be a performer along with other artists like John Legend, Sam Smith, and so many more.
