“Believe” is just one of the many highlights in “Miley Cyrus Presents Stand by You,” which was filmed at Nashville
’s Ryman Auditorium and will premiere Friday on NBC
’s Peacock streaming platform.
Cyrus has spent much of the past week teasing show performances, including several with country artists, including a duet of ABBA's "Dancing Queen" with Maren Morris and a later duet with the Brothers Osbourne of Pat Benatar's "We Belong."
According to press notes, the night's set list will include many of her own songs, such as "The Climb" and "Party in the USA," as well as covers of Cyndi Lauper and Madonna hits.
The full performance of "Believe" is available below.
T.J. Osbourne, half of the Brothers Osbourne, told GLAAD on Thursday that he was “extremely impressed” by Cyrus’ behind-the-scenes work
ethic and the fact that she requested that his straight brother John participate in the show as well.
“Ultimately, the reason I came out was for inclusion,” Osbourne, who came out as gay in February, said. “To me, it’s about [my brother and I] being on equal playing fields. How do I project that message to people
if I am pulling myself away from my brother? I think it has really put us in a unique position.”
The Peacock channel will premiere “Miley Cyrus Presents Stand by You” on June 25.
