Miley Cyrus covers Pink Floyd song ‘Wish You Were Here’ on Saturday Night Live

Miley Cyrus arrived as the surprise musical guest the latest Saturday Night Live and delivered a rendition of Pink Floyd hit ‘Wish You Were Here’.

The performance, which arrived as part of SNL’s latest ‘At Home’ episode amid the lockdown, sees Cyrus beside a campfire and accompanied by musician and producer Andrew Watt for a rendition of the 1975 song.

Watt, who is tasked with producing Cyrus’ forthcoming new album, also revealed recently that he developed pneumonia after contracting coronavirus: “Yesterday I was given the results that I am positive for COVID-19,” the producer previously wrote in a post on a social media. “I wanted to tell you all about my journey getting here in an effort to bring awareness to the severity of what’s happening in the world.”

While he has recovered from the virus now, Watt detailed at the time: “My fevers have gotten much, much better and I have begun to have somewhat of an appetite again, but it is very hard for me to breathe as a result of this pneumonia. I am laid out in bed chugging Gatorade and using an oxygen machine to give my lungs as much relief as possible.

“I am 29 years old. I am a healthy young man and I am going to get through this no matter what,” Watt added. “I am going to make a full recovery. But there are so many people in my life and in the world that could possibly not get through this due to their age and/or a compromised immune system. This is why I am writing this post. I can’t stress this enough. This is not a joke. Stay inside, stay sanitized. Please stop everything and take care of yourselves and the people you love around you, until we are all through this.”

Now, fittingly, Watt is performing from home in a bid to promote social distancing. See his performance alongside Cyrus, below.
