‘Musical Genre Challenge’ is a fun and creative game invented at the popular talk show ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ and we got to witness the beauty of it first hand when Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon himself took on the challenge last night. Musical Genre Challenge generates a random song along with a random genre and the participants have to perform the song in whatever the genre it is matched up with. This is not an easy task. Why? Try singing “Ignition (Remix)” by R. Kelly in Bluegrass.
At the talk show Jimmy Fallon and Miley Cyrus went head-to-head taking turns. First up Jimmy Fallon got “Cotton Eye Joe” by Rednex paired with Soft Rock genre. He nailed it. In Miley Cyrus’ first turn she got matched with “Ignition (Remix)” to be sung in Bluegrass. Miley broke into her thick western accent and killed that performance.
Jimmy Fallon was thrown off the game for a second by his next pairing of “Santeria” by Sublime to be performed in Latin Crooner genre. But he poured his heart out to the act and came out successful. Finally, Miley Cyrus was matched with Cardi B’s number one hit “Bodak Yellow” to be sung in Pop. She nailed it.

Miley Cyrus was also the opening act of the last week show of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She performed a beautiful rendition of “No Freedom” accompanied by Adam Sandler. This performance was dedicated to the victims of the horrific act of terrorism in Las Vegas last Monday. Watch Miley Cyrus and Adam Sandler cover Dido’s “No Freedom” live.
Towards the end of the show, Miley Cyrus also performed an emotional throw back track “The Climb” from her Hannah Montana days. It was beautiful to say the least. Watch her perform her hit single below.
