Backed by a powerhouse band of musicians including Andrew Watt (lead guitarist and Cyrus’ creative partner/producer) and Stacy Jones (drums), Miley Cyrus took the stage at the iconic Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood for a short set — and boy, did she make it count.

Cyrus and the band only performed three songs, but the pop star made sure to leave an impression. Cyrus performed three songs — a cover of “Boys Don’t Cry” by The Cure, her own new song “Midnight Sky” and a riveting rendition of “Zombie,” the classic ’90s hit from The Cranberries.

But watching her belt out “Zombie” is sure to be an intriguing experience for a lot of people who maybe didn’t suspect she had such a performance in her.
