Fans are eagerly anticipating “Miley Cyrus Presents Stand By You”, which streams on Peacock beginning Friday.
In advance of the show, on Wednesday Peacock shared a special sneak peek from the Pride-themed special, with Miley Cyrus delivering a special cover of Cher’s anthem “Believe”.
“Happy Pride, everybody!” Cyrus tells the crowd before launching into the 1998 hit.
As she sings, Cyrus is joined by an array of drag queens as backup dancers, including Kylie Sonique Love, Venus Ann Serena, Iris Lefluer, Raquel Rea Heart, Sapphire Mylan, and Jaidynn Diore Fierce.
Cher herself responded to the performance, praising, “she was perfect. Didn’t expect to wake up this morning & see something that would put a big smile on my face.”
Miley added that all she wanted to do was make “our queen” “proud”.
