When Miley Cyrus was performing at the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest in Los Angeles in 2022, she sang one of the greatest hits of the 1980's, "Like a Prayer" by Madonna.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

During her gripping rendition, Cyrus owned the stage while singing the pop classic in her unique, raspy tone as the choir, horns, and guitars behind her synched with her voice perfectly.

What to know about "Like a Prayer" by Madonna

Released off Madonna's 1989 album of the same name, "Like a Prayer" is a gospel themed song with elements of electro pop. It reached the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100, and in 2023, the outlet named "Like a Prayer" as the second best Madonna song. 

"The song’s full religious experience would be incomplete without a perfectly deployed gospel choir, humming hushed harmonies over the verses and singing full-throated sermons to drive it all home. Life might be a mystery, but the mastery of this song is irrefutable," Billboard wrote.
