Cyrus embraced her Nashville roots for the special, giving a countrified twist to "Bangerz" material such as '4 x 4,' 'Do My Thing' and '#Getitright' and covering Dolly Parton's 'Jolene.'
'We're trying to bring Nashville here and get people in the country spirit,' Cyrus said on sound stage at Sunset Gower Studios on Tuesday evening. The turnaround of the show in less than 24 hours is the fastest MTV has done in the history of the 'Unplugged' franchise.
'It's been a dream to go live globally, but with the addition of a guest (Madonna), we decided to do a quick turnaround,' MTV Networks Music and Logo Group president Van Tofler told Billboard.
He said MTV is focused on the premiere Wednesday night at 9pm and that down the road they will consider releasing a longer version and will put interview footage and extras online at MTV.com.
MTV UK confirmed to madonnalicious that the show will air in the UK on Thursday 06 February at 9pm on MTV Music.
