Number 3 will convince you that she is the best
Whether you love her or you hate her, Miley Cyrus certainly has one of the most recognisable and versatile voices in the industry. Her own albums have always done well but one thing we can always appreciate is her ability to take a cover and make it her own.
Here are Miley's top 5 song covers.
Miley's voice is most suited to country and pop music but her cover of Arctic Monkeys' "Why Do You Only Call Me When You're High" is a triumph. She literally takes the song by the throat and gives it her signature high notes and sex appeal.
This song is probably quite special to Miley. Her Godmother Dolly Parton first sang this song in 1973 and Miley could probably sing this song in her sleep if she really had to.
Miley's cover of The Turtles' best known song is truly transformative. Her voice sounds like it was made for this particular track. Her flourishes and the ease with which she belts out each note kind of makes you wonder if Miley wrote this herself.
A lot of people criticised Miley's cover of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" when it first came out. They said she did too much with it and added too many flourishes. Good thing those people are just haters.
One of the latest in Miley's backyard sessions featuring Ariana Grande, "Don't Dream It's Over" boasts two of the most talented young vocalists in pop music. This is a major winner for her outdoor concert series.
