You might expect Miley Cyrus' choice of live cover song to be some sort of nursery rhyme where the key chorus words are changed to 'lollipop' and 'penis' or something, but curiously she chose to cover The Smiths' "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" in Belfast on Monday night.

Cyrus went with the 1986 track for a concert at the Odyssey Arena, giving a performance much like Morrissey's, if he thrusted rhythmically in a one-piece while taking tongue-out selfies on a smartphone.

Actually, as the fan footage shows, it was quite a tender performance, almost as though you could see the 21-year-old women in there somewhere craving to be singing something more real than the alphabetti spaghetti and twerking tomfoolery of We Can't Stop.

This isn't the first time Miley has chosen a classic song to cover live, last week on her Bangerz tour she was joined by The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven  Drozd for a performance of The Beatles' "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", with whom she has also been writing songs for her next album.
