Miley Cyrus’ Performance Of Queen Classics Draws A Divided Response On Social Media
Famous popstar Miley Cyrus recently performed a few of the signature Queen songs such as ‘We Will Rock You,’ and ‘Don’t Stop Me Now,’ at this year’s NCAA men basketball Final Four tourney on April 3, and fans are divided into two districts sections on social media platforms since there are fans who absolutely loved while there are also who hated it.
As many of you know, despite being a well-known pop singer, Miley Cyrus has also performed numerous rock legends’ songs during her live performances over the years such as Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters, Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb.’
For this year’s NCAA men basketball Final Four tourney on Saturday, Miley Cyrus’ performance broke the internet as she opened the show with Queen classics, ‘We Will Rock You,’ and ‘Don’t Stop Me Now,‘ followed by her original songs.
Although her fans aren’t strangers seeing her performing cover versions of other rock musicians, the internet, apparently, wasn’t ready since everybody was quite shocked by Miley Cyrus’ performance. There are a majority of fans that were in love with the fact that she preferred to perform rock classics rather than the regular pop songs.
However, there were also a great number of people who were bashing the pop singer for signing up for such a big responsibility as performing Queen songs not perfectly can cause a musician quite a trouble by the band’s fans. The matter was all over social media platforms and those who did not enjoy Cyrus’ performance wanted the show to be over immediately.
Regardless of the divided opinions on her performance, many people agreed on the fact that seeing a young pop musician performing rock classics to an even younger generation as it was seen from the tiny crowd, cannot be something to be criticized but something to be celebrated.
Here is what a fan said:
“Glad to see this young lady Miley Cyrus rocking the stage tonight with songs of the Queen! My wife was in shock, we haven’t seen something like that in years! Miley rocks!”
Here is what another said:
“Miley Cyrus ‘Queen’ cover concert? Nope, don’t like that.“
