Miley Cyrus and Madonna perform together on 'MTV Unplugged'

MTV brought back its iconic "MTV Unplugged" series on Wednesday night with Miley Cyrus. She performed many songs from her latest album Bangerz. The highlight moment, though, was when the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna, joined Cyrus for a mash-up of their hits "We Can't Stop" and "Don't Tell Me."

Cyrus became a worldwide phenomenon last year with her array of wild antics (like twerking on Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards). The former Disney starlet did "MTV Unplugged" on Tuesday to put her vocal prowess at the forefront. She performed stripped, country versions of her Bangerz songs like "4X4" and "#GETITRIGHT," and covered Dolly Parton's "Jolene." Though, Cyrus still got some twerking and tongue-wagging in, of course.

For the finale, Cyrus did "We Can't Stop" and then Madonna's 2000 hit single "Don't Tell Me." In a blue cowgirl outfit, Cyrus sang a few lines of the latter before a star-studded Madonna took to the stage. The two singers grinded on each other and performed some hoedown-inspired dance moves. Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" later cut in and Madonna sang, "If you're not ready to go home / Can I get a 'hell no.'" As Cyrus and Madonna seamlessly mashed-up their defiant anthems into one fun performance.

Cyrus' Bangerz album was released in October of last year and peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's albums chart.
