Since most of us are watching the Super Bowl and waiting on the halftime show, you might have missed Miley Cyrus killing the pre-show. She even brought out Billy Idol, of all people, who jumped on stage for a rendition of his classic hit White Wedding.

That was arguably the highlight of her show, but the whole event was spectacular. Cyrus also brought out Joan Jett for a quick medley that included the timeless banger that is Bad Reputation.

Miley Cyrus also performed Hey Mickey, which she changed to “Hey Miley” at one point; Heart of Glass by Blondie; and even Rebel Girl by Bikini Kill…

It was a crazy, esoteric set, packed full of covers like Head Like a Hole by Nine Inch Nails and Jolene by Dolly Parton. She also managed to sprinkle in a few of her own hits like The Climb and Wrecking Ball.

The performance took place during the pre-show for the first ever TikTok Tailgate and was produced for over 7,500 healthcare workers given free admission to the event. 

“This is my first show in about a year,” Cyrus said on stage, “and I couldn’t imagine a better way to do this than in Tampa, surrounded by healthcare heroes. We are so appreciative of you and all your diligence.”
