Miley Cyrus to get MTV Unplugged special

Miley Cyrus to get MTV Unplugged special

Brace yourself Smilers, Miley Cyrus is getting her own MTV Unplugged special and you can count on it being something pretty special.

The Wrecking Ball singer shared the news of her one-off televised performance by posting a wacky picture of herself on Instagram wearing a blonde wig and fake buck teeth, with just two stick-on stars to cover her nipples.

Nothing particularly out of the ordinary there... But the TV bosses behind the MTV Unplugged series, which sees bands and artists unplugging their instruments for intimate performances, are certain the show will be something extraordinary and promise the acoustic set will "showcase a more intimate side of Cyrus."

MTV boss Amy Doyle said in a statement, "The Unplugged stage has been home to some of the most iconic live performances of all time. Miley's vision for the performance is like nothing we've ever seen. I can say that this will easily be one of the most memorable Unplugged performances to date."

You might think the intimate acoustic setting would somewhat limit the potential for scandalous antics, but wherever Miley's involved nothing can be taken for granted. We can only guess what 'Miley's vision' might be...

The performance is set to be aired in America on 29 January.
