Miley Cyrus was the surprise musical guest on the April 25 “At Home” edition of “Saturday Night Live”. The singer performed a cover of the Pink Floyd classic “Wish You Were Here” while seated by the fireplace and accompanied by Andrew Watt, a renowned guitarist, songwriter and hitmaker, who recently recovered of a coronavirus and talked about the scary experience on social networks. The musician now carries antibodies that may have an impact on the reacquisition of the virus and donates his blood to continue research on the composition of COVID-19.

Cyrus’s raspy take on the iconic song was exactly what the doctor ordered, so to speak, because it stayed true to the simplicity of the 1975 original but injected it with a somber sense of urgency. No embellishment required.

Watt, on a 12-string acoustic guitar, was not far from one of the most recognized melodies in the history of music. After recently collaborating with a diverse range of artists – Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne, 5 Seconds of Summer, Camila Cabello and Dua Lipa, among them – Watt’s next project is to produce Cyrus’ next album, which must be scheduled .

Watch the performance below.

“SNL” opened its second edition “At Home” with Brad Pitt describing Dr. Anthony Fauci in a thought-provoking address on the coronavirus, but rather than looking for jokes, the show used its platform to provide real information about the state of the pandemic.

At the end of the sketch, Pitt took off his Fauci wig and thanked the real Dr. Fauci for his “calm and clarity during this troubling time”. He also thanked the medical workers, first responders and their respective families.
