Miley Cyrus covers Cher with popular drag queens

Popular drag queens Kylie Sonique Love and Jaidynn Fierce helped Miley Cyrus bring the house down during her Stand By You concert.

Filmed in Nashville, the show featured the multi-platinum recording artist performing an array of hits such as “The Climb” and “Party in the U.S.A.”. Additionally, Miley also took a creative spin on beloved classics, including “True Colors,” “We Belong” and “Dancing Queen.”

Not to mention a special Madonna medley featuring “Music,” “Express Yourself,” and “Like A Prayer” all in the spirit of Pride month.

During the hour-long performance, Miley covered Cher's 1999 hit "Believe." But not without a little help from a complete army of six fabulous drag queens. While the singer belted out the lyrics perfectly, all the queens honored Cher's style evolution over the years. Additionally, each performed choreography routines all while serving face.

Both Kylie and Jaidynn were joined by fellow drag queens, Venus Ann Serena, Sapphire T. Mylan, Raquel Rea Heart, and Iris Lefleur for the set.
