She also performed “Head Like a Hole” by the Nine-Inch Nails and “Jolene” by Dolly Parton.

She gave her godmother Dolly Parton a shoutout by saying, “If you can’t tell that we’re related, rhinestones run in the family.”

Joan Jett joined her for “Bad Karma,” “Bad Reputation,” and “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”

During her performance, she gave a shoutout to the doctors and nurses present at the Super Bowl. She said, according to PopCulture, “It’s my honor to perform for you, and a dedication of a song can never repay you for a service.”

Miley Cyrus released her album “Plastic Hearts” in November 2020. This is her first live performance in about a year.

The album is Cyrus’ entrance into more rock-style music. It debuted as No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200. She released “Midnight Sky” and “Prisoner” as singles before the album release. Billy Idol, Dua Lipa, Joan Jett, and Stevie Nicks are all featured on the album.

“This is my first show in about a year, and I could not imagine a better way than here in Tampa surrounded by all these healthcare heroes. I hope I can have more like these [concerts]. And that dream will only be a reality because of people like yourselves…Our gratitude toward you is infinite,” Cyrus said to Elle.
