Watch Miley Cyrus Perform Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’ on ‘SNL at Home’
The classic 1975 song gets a stirring acoustic update.
Sitting next to a fire pit that lit the pop superstar’s rendition with an eerie red glow, Cyrus and guitarist Andrew Watt (who recently recovered from COVID-19) delivered a stirring cover of the beloved 1975 single, after being introduced by guest star Brad Pitt.
Rolling Stone notes that it wasn’t Cyrus’s first time covering a Pink Floyd classic live: In September 2019, at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, the singer added the band’s “Comfortably Numb” (and Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”) to her set.
The “Wish You Were Here” performance is the second straight week that SNL at Home enlisted an artist to play an acoustic cover of a rock classic. Last week, Coldplay’s Chris Martin covered Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm.”
