The pop star performed her single “We Can’t Stop” a capella style with host Fallon and his house band, The Roots.
The performance was a welcome contrast to her strip-club-style choreography and outfits at the 2013 VMAs that are forever engraved in the world’s collective memory.
“I actually Love this video,” one commenter wrote on the “Late Night” blog. “Good job Miley, and with your clothes on even!!!”
“Only Jimmy can make it so I can hear the words and start to like it,” another new fan wrote.
It appears that some people still prefer judging musical performances with their ears these days. Maybe there’s hope for America, after all.
