Was Miley Cyrus the Lollapalooza 2021 MVP?

To kick off the first massive music festival of the season, Miley Cyrus took the stage at Lollapalooza on the night of Thursday, July 29th. A lot of artists curate a sort of "best of" setlist for big crowds, but Miley rolled out a live debut, some deep cuts AND a handful of special guests for her Lolla appearance.

In a red, sparkling shorty romper, Miley opened her set with 2013 party anthem, "We Can't Stop" with musical nods to Pixies "Where Is My Mind." Watch fan-shot footage of that medley:

After that epic opening, she live debuted Plastic Hearts track "WTF Do I Know" and the album's title track.


Four songs in featured her first special guest, a duet of "Night Crawling" with Billy Idol. The two then covered Idol's iconic 1982 single, "White Wedding."

Following a cover of Blondie's "Heart of Glass," Miley resurrected "SMS (Bangerz)" for the first time since 2014 and "Dooo It," the only track performed from Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz album, and for the first time since 2015.

Miley's parade of special guests began on "Love Money Party" with Chicago's own G Herbo.

"23" saw Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa join Miley on stage before she introduced remixed versions of "Malibu" and "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart."

Rarity "Slide Away" hit mid-set, and "7 Things" was performed for the first time since 2011.

There were three more cover songs in Cyrus's set, including her collab with The Kid LAROI, "WITHOUT YOU."
