The former The Voice Coach did an edgy take on the disco tune back in 2020.

In 2020, Miley Cyrus used her signature rock and roll voice to bring an edgy flair to Blondie's "Heart of Glass."

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

During her performance she made the unique (and effective) choice to belt the chorus to the classic new-wave tune. Unsurprisingly, the cover went ultra-viral, and now has more than 170 million views on YouTube.

What to know about "Heart of Glass" by Blondie

Released off of the band's 1978 album Parallel Lines, "Heat of Glass" marked the transition of Blondie's sound from punk to a disco style. It reached the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100, and in 2023 the outlet listed "Heart of Glass" as the 47th best pop song of all time. 

"One of the first (and best) singles to blend dance and new wave, Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” boasts a breezy effervescence that belies its immaculate production and meticulous execution," Billboard wrote.

"Heart of Glass" by Blondie lyrics

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing, but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing there's no peace of mind
If I fear I'm losing you. it's just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I'm the one you're using, please don't push me aside
We coulda made it cruising, yeah

La, da, da, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, da, da, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, da, da, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Yeah, riding high on love's true bluish light

Ooh, oh, ooh, oh
Ooh, oh, ooh, oh

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing there's no peace of mind
If I fear I'm losing you it's just no good
You teasing like you do
