Actress and singer Miley Cyrus joined “The Tonight Show” on Friday to promote her season-long appearance on “The Voice” as one of the show’s guest judges.
While on Fallon’s show she played a silly game, sat down for an interview and joined The Roots for a cover of one of Bob Dylan’s greatest songs.
The version of the Dylan-penned “Baby I’m in the Mood For You” Cyrus performed was made famous by Odetta in the mid-1960s.
Cyrus ditched her pop star image for a sultry and country-infused performance of the song, complete with a mid-song vocal breakdown.
“Alright everybody, how we all doin’ tonight?” Cyrus asked the crowd.
“Here at Jimmy Fallon, everybody in the audience, everybody at home, I can’t forget about you. I wanna say thanks to you. There is nowhere that I would rather be than right here, in New York City, playing this song, with The Roots.”
This was far from the first time that Cyrus dazzled an NBC show with a popular cover.
At the 40th anniversary celebration of “Saturday Night Live,” Cyrus performed a cover of Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” that became a viral sensation.
