AceShowbiz - Miley Cyrus gave fans in her native Tennessee a big thrill on Saturday, May 04 by joining singer Marc Cohn onstage at the Beale Street Music Festival.
The pop superstar made a surprise appearance to team up with Cohn on his 1991 hit "Walking in Memphis", before treating attendees to renditions of her own tunes, including "We Can't Stop" and "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart".
Miley was supported at the gig by her new husband, Liam Hemsworth, who cheered her on from the crowd, and she even gave Britney Spears a shout out as she played her chart smash "Party in the U.S.A.", according to TMZ.
Instead of repeating the line, "And a Britney song was on" during the refrain, Miley shouted, "Free Britney!" - a nod to fan conspiracy theories suggesting the "Toxic" singer was being held against her will at a mental health facility last month.
After some devotees staged a "Free Britney" protest in Los Angeles on April 22 - three days before Spears checked out of the undisclosed California medical centre.
Britney even tried to assure fans there was no truth to the claims by posting her own video denial on Instagram.
