Miley Cyrus covered The Bealtes' classic 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards last night (18.05.14).
The 'Wrecking Ball' singer, who appeared via video link, was first bleeped by ABC producers when she slipped up while thanking fans for her Top Streaming Song (Video) and Top Streaming Artist gongs.
The 21-year-old star said: "Thank you to everybody for making this sh*t possible," adding, "Oops sorry, forgot I was on ABC."
The singer, who was still in Britain as part of her Bangerz World Tour, then performed a cover of The Beatles' song for the Billboard audience with The Flaming Lips' vocalist Wayne Coyne.
Miley wore a sequin body suit emblazoned with a pair of jumbo lips for her acceptance video, before taking to the stage in a gold cape and pink face-paint, while Wayne donned a red one-piece and tinsel silver cape.
The performance aired live on ABC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Miley turned to The Flaming Lips' music after she called off her engagement and her dog Floyd was killed by coyotes and she has since been in the studio with the band.
She said: "Floyd and I always listened to the Flaming Lips. So now when I listen to that music, I totally feel the presence of him still being there, you know?"
