The description in the following video put it best: “We talk a lot about Miley Cyrus‘ hair, Twitter, fiancé and dogs, but at the end of the day, she’s a singer.” In a backyard acoustic performance, Miley Cyrus wows us with what she does best, and that’s sing.

The music video, premiering on E! Online, features Cyrus in a passionate cover of Melanie Safka’s “Look What They’ve Done to My Song.” Accompanying her are two guitarists as she sings, “Well, if the people are buying tears/ I’ll be rich someday, Ma,” she croons. “Look what they’ve done to my song.”

I don’t know why, but I feel like this is one of my favorite performances by Miley Cyrus ever. Her voice is beautiful, soulful, and she’s so into what she’s singing. It helps to have a great song like this to sing to, but bravo to Cyrus for such a great video. Watch it below.
