Cyrus to duet with Madonna for show
Miley Cyrus is rumoured to be performing with Madonna for her MTV Unplugged show.
The queen of twerk is tipped to join forces with the queen of pop, who will be the surprise guest performer for the TV special.
Sources told E! Online that the pair have been rehearsing the collaboration on a Hollywood soundstage, although details of what they will be singing is being kept under wraps.
Miley previously compared herself to Madonna after her controversial performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards. She told the New York Times: "Last night, I was talking about some Madonna performances, and I said, 'At some point, everything becomes irrelevant.' Like, no one even thinks about when she did Like A Virgin at the VMAs."
Madonna, who teamed up with Macklemore And Ryan Lewis at the Grammy Awards for a performance of Same Love, has had a number of headline-making collaborations in the past, including those with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Nicki Minaj.
Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged will be recorded today (January 28), to be shown on the music network on January 29.
"The performance will showcase a more intimate side of Cyrus and feature surprise guests for an unexpected re-invention of the songs that have defined her career, including several from her number one critically acclaimed album, Bangerz," a statement from MTV said.
"Miley and her fans have always had an intimate and direct connection through her music, personality and no-holds-barred attitude and the Unplugged stage will serve as the perfect platform for her to show viewers what inspires and ignites her music and her passions."
Since its debut in 1989, Unplugged has showcased music stars such as Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Adele and Florence + The Machine.
