Sorry Christmas, Miley Cyrus Used All The Tinsel At The Billboard Awards

Seriously guys, it was the shiniest performance ever.

When she’s not busy jamming on Beatles classics with her best fwend and Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, Miley Cyrus has a career of her own to attend to.

On Sunday night (May 18) that meant, well, jamming with her best fwend Coyne on their cover of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.” There was glitter, more glitter, and, we’re going to assume an upcoming worldwide shortage of tinsel, since she and Coyne used about 250 pounds of it to make themselves his-and-hers silver and gold shiny outfits.

Beamed in from an overseas stop on her Bangerz tour, the mostly faithful rendition of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band ballad had Miley singing the rock classic’s lysergic lyrics in her slightly hoarse style, as Coyne joined her on the choruses. That is, when he wasn’t bending down to kiss her bejeweled feet or smashing a crash cymbal with a taped up maraca.

When it was all over, the cameras cut to dad Billy Ray Cyrus, who looked… proud?

The remake of the Beatles classic went on sale as part of the pre-order of the Lips’ upcoming Fab Four covers album.
