The New York City subway system can be a pretty dismal place at times.
That’s why artists like to fill the subway halls with musical or dance performances.
These talented acts bring life and humanity to the underground subway tunnels. But you never expect to see big named celebrities busking down there.
Subway riders inside Rockefeller Center station in Manhattan were really feeling a country duo of singers who were backed up by a guitarist and a bucket drummer.
They had no idea that they were actually looking at Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon in disguise.
The drummer and guitarist were already seated when Miley comes walking out in a long black wig, sunglasses, and a cowboy.
She was followed by Fallon who was wearing a mop-top dark wig and a cowboy hat. They were both wearing a lot of denim.
Cyrus started her performance with a big “Yeehaw!”
With Fallon backing her on the tambourine, Cyrus ripping into a performance of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” which she has beautifully covered before.
It wasn’t long before a huge crowd formed and people were screaming and cheering. It’s safe to say that people caught on to who they were by the time the song was through.
That’s when they pulled off their wig and the crowd went wild.
“This is my first time at the subway station. This is exciting s–t for me,” Cyrus said.
Cyrus jumped right into fan favorite “Party in the USA.” I mean, who wouldn’t want a mid-day subway dance party concert.
How awesome! Those people must have been so happy.
Cyrus declared that it was a “Party in the Sub-Way.” The impromptu surprise performance went over well with subway goers. It also went over well on the internet. A video of their performance was viewed more than 16 million times.
“Sorry I’m late boss…well… you see… miley cyrus was at the subway… and she was doing a concert… yeah… in the subway…oh yeah… fallon was there too… yeah, Jimmy fallon…ok, I’ll pack up my stuff,” one person wrote on YouTube.
“I have to admit I’m impressed. That girl can sure sing country!” said another.
“She’s a very natural performer, not many singers have this kinda quality nowadays.” said another.
