Miley Cyrus has become notorious for her covers. The “Midnight Sky” singer is not new to the art of singing classics with her 2012 cover of “Jolene” garnering over 277 million views. Lately, however, Miley has ramped up her cover-singing game and took the internet by storm with her “Heart of Glass” cover. Fans and critics alike have been impressed with Miley’s singing abilities and noted how great she sounds singing rock music. Cyrus has seemingly taken note and has continued on her rock-cover trend by singing both “Boys Don’t Cry” by The Cure and “Zombie” by The Cranberries last Saturday, October 17. The latter of these two really stood out to viewers and even gained the attention of The Cranberries. The band took to Twitter to praise Cyrus and even said that they believed “Dolores would be very impressed!” Filling the shoes of the late Dolores O’Riordan is no simple task, and with such, this kind of praise from her bandmates really is telling of Cyrus’ talent.
We were delighted to hear of Miley Cyrus’ cover of Zombie at the Whisky a Go Go #SOSFEST in LA at the weekend. It’s one of the finest covers of the song that we’ve heard. We think Dolores would be very impressed! Check it out here: https://t.co/ysFxUZLKnl

The performance was part of the three-day Save Our Stages Fest. The live-streamed festival featured musicians from all across the musical spectrum with performances from Finneas, Phoebe Bridgers, Reba McIntire, and many more. Save Our Stages was created to raise money in order to help independent venues like Troubadour and Whiskey a Go Go that have taken a hit during the Coronavirus pandemic. Donations are still being accepted at the festival’s website.
