Between that denim bikini, her sexy mashup with Madonna and whatever she did to that horse, there was plenty to talk about throughout Miley Cyrus’ raucous “MTV Plugged” performance on Wednesday night. But it wasn’t the suggestive dancing that had many, many fans excited — #MileyUnplugged was quickly catapulted into a nationwide Twitter trend — but rather, it was the fact that between all the controversy, Miley can sing.
Of course, loyal Smilers knew all along that the Bangerz singer has a hell of a voice, but “Unplugged” saw it on full display as Miley got back to her country roots.
Perhaps it was @elliot_friar and @KidzBopsicle who best summed up the atmosphere inside Los Angeles’ Sunset Gower Studios when they tweeted “my ears are squirting rainbows and glitter” and “IM HAVING AN EARGASM,” respectively.

Before inviting her highly anticipated plus-one to the stage, Miley roared through favorites like “Drive” “Do My Thang,” “Wrecking Ball,” “Adore You” and “Jolene” (a track by Miley’s godmother Dolly Parton). So which was the fan-favorite? It’s hard to tell, but early results show that the frontrunners were:
“Adore You,” which “could not be more perfect”
Adore You on Miley Unplugged could not have been more perfect

And the Twitter just about combusted when Madonna herself joined Miley for a sexy mashup of “Don’t Tell Me” and “We Can’t Stop.”
