Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged (9:00 p.m. ET, MTV)and Madonna COWGIRL UP in the MTV show this Wednesday. Miley Cyrus goes back to her country roots for this MTV Unplugged episode, joined by special guest star Madonna. Twerking ensues, but also, as if there had been any doubt, Miley still proves that she is an excellent singer, and Madonna also still has tons of musical chops.
Though Miley Cyrus is going back to her Nashville and country roots, she and Madonna are sure to bring plenty of sass and attitude into the mix. The pair will be singing some country standards, like Jolene by Dolly Parton (who Miley refers to as “Aunt Dolly”), but they will add their own inimitable flair to the tunes.
Madonna in cowgirl gear? Yep, pardner — the “Material Girl,” now perhaps better known to her fans as Madge, will be dressed up in full cowgirl style, complete with rhinestones and boots.
One of the stage sets for their collaboration features bales of hay and a giant wagon wheel lit up with LED lights. Miley Cyrus has stated that she’s killed Hannah Montana; could it be that her former alter ego will rise from the grave this Wednesday night?
While Miley Cyrus will be dressed in traditional Country Western garb, one thing’s for sure — her clothing didn’t just come off of a bargain basement rack. Her sequin-decked, baggy, distressed jeans, triangle bikini top, rhinestone-speckled cowboy boots and other clothes can be found in the Ashish Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
Madonna matches Miley, and has leather fringe and a ten gallon cowboy hat on designed by Eric Javits. Her clothing contains crystal flourishes
Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged taped on Tuesday in a soundstage located practically within spitting distance of the Hollywood sign. The special will air at 9:00 p.m..
Together, Miley Cyrus and Madonna will be singing a total of 12 songs on Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged. Besides Miley Cyrus and her song choices on this episode, she sings Madonna’s “Don’t Tell Me” with her, and the moment is GOLD, solid gold.
One thing’s for sure: neither of these two singers have come as far as they have without being dedicated to music and pursuing the goal of entertaining their audiences, while still making enough money to support their wild lifestyles.
The advance word is that Miley Cyrus and Madonna will bump-and-grind, and Miley — hardly ever one to listen to her critics — will again be lolling her tongue out of her mouth, as she’s become famous for doing.
If you’re a fan of Miley Cyrus, Madonna, or both, put aside a little bit of your evening on Wednesday, January 29, at 9 ET, to see the duo sing Country Western songs, twerk, and contribute to yet another page of musical history together.
