You Gotta Hear Miley Cyrus' Country Cover of Andre 3000's "Hey Ya!"

After making our jaws drop with a stunning acoustic take of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" we were looking forward to the next time Miley Cyrus made her voice the predominant talking point of a live performance. A new video of the singer covering Andre 3000's "Hey Ya!" has surfaced showing the starlet doing that for about 95 percent of the time... with the last five percent dedicated to twerking. 

Watch above for footage from Cyrus' Bangerz tour where she takes "Hey Ya!" to the farm for an acoustic, country-fied rework. With banjo, cello and acoustic guitar backing her, Miley sing/raps the 2003 hit with her twangy-but-powerful vocals for a rendition we're kinda sorta dying to put on our iPods.

The performance stays relatively controversy free until the bridge. In true Miley fashion, she takes the "shake it like a Polaroid picture" line literally and brings back the signature twerking we saw at the 2013 VMAs. Guess this means Miley has rescinded her vow to never twerk again.

A performance mostly with great vocals and a little bit of Miley twerking? We'll take it. I mean, it's not like she's fondling a little person or anything.
