On Saturday evening (Dec. 31), the international superstar was joined by the “Becky’s So Hot” singer to perform a Cyrus fan-favorite from her latest album, Plastic Hearts, which was released on November 27, 2020, via RCA Records.
Cyrus, donning a pastel fringe skirt, kicked off the performance singing the opening verse of the fan-favorite hit. FLETCHER then joined Cyrus on stage to sing the second verse before harmonizing on the song’s chorus. Throughout the risqué showcase of the tune, FLETCHER and Cyrus share several hugs and danced against each other as they belted out the lyrics to the tune.
“I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no / I don’t need to be loved by you (by you) / Fire in my lungs, can’t bite the devil on my tongue, oh no / I don’t need to be loved by you / See my lips on her mouth, everybody’s talking now, baby / Ooh, you know it’s true, yeah / That I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no / I don’t need to be loved by you (by you),” Cyrus and FLETCHER sang in sync on the chorus.
Earlier in the show, FLETCHER performed her viral hit, “Becky’s Hot,” a tune that appears on her latest album, Girl Of My Dreams. Wearing an all white ensemble, the 29-year-old singer/songwriter allowed her powerhouse vocals to truly shine.
She even paid homage to Cyrus during her performance with a clever lyric change at the end of the tune, changing “Becky’s so hot” to “Miley‘s so hot.”
Co-hosted by Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton, Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party aired on live on NBC from Miami, Florida on Saturday (Dec. 31) from 10:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. ET and will also stream live on Peacock.
This year’s edition of Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party marked the second consecutive year of the New Year’s Eve special.
Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party also featured an A-list lineup of musical performances and special guests, including Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Latto, Liily, FLETCHER, Rae Sremmurd, and SIA.
In addition to an epic lineup of performances, Saturday Night Live’s (SNL) Chloe Fineman and Sarah Sherman as well as comedy trio Please Don’t Destroy also made appearances.
“The lineup is very me. It is curated in a way that makes no sense, but makes total sense,” Cyrus previously explained during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Last year, Cyrus co-hosted her New Year’s Eve Party alongside Pete Davidson. The 2021/2022 installment of the show, which drew in over 6.3 million viewers and was the No. 1 trending New Year’s Eve special on Twitter, featured performances from Jack Harlow, Billie Joe Armstrong, Brandi Carlile, Saweetie, Noah Cyrus, Anitta, 24kGoldn, Kitty Ca$h, and more.
