Niall Horan's Acoustic Cover of a Hannah Montana Song Is Surprisingly Soulful

The Voice Season 24 Coach tackled this classic from Miley Cyrus, a.k.a Hannah Montana, a.k.a also a Coach alum from The Voice

By Jackie Manno

In 2023, The Voice Coach Niall Horan put a unique spin on one of Miley Cyrus' very first songs: "The Best of Both Worlds" from the TV series Hannah Montana, where she played the titular role. 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 25 premiere of The Voice Monday, February 26 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

During Horan's cover, he strummed his guitar while sitting in front of a slew of Hannah Montana posters. He played the usually-upbeat tune with still confidence, infusing it with a surprising amount of soul. 

Check out his version of the song further down this post.

What to know about "The Best of Both Worlds" by Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus

"The Best of Both Worlds" is the theme song to the TV series Hannah Montana, which ran from 2006 to 2011. It was sung by Miley Cyrus' (named Miley Stewart on the show) alter ego, Hannah Montana, as the premise was that Cyrus' character led a secret life as a pop star.

"The Best of Both Worlds" by Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus lyrics

You get the limo out front 
Hottest styles, every shoe, every color
Yeah, when you're famous it can be kinda fun
It's really you, but no one ever discovers
In some ways, you're just like all your friends
But on stage, you're a star

You get the best of both worlds
Chill it out, take it slow
Then you rock out the show
You get the best of both worlds
Mix it all together
And you know that it's the best of both worlds
The best of both worlds, yeah

You go to movie premieres (Is that Orlando Bloom?)
Hear your songs on the radio 
Livin' two lives is a little weird, yeah
But school's cool 'cause nobody knows
Yeah, you get to be a small town girl
But big time when you play your guitar

You get the best of both worlds
Chill it out, take it slow
Then you rock out the show
You get the best of both worlds
Mix it all together
And you know that it's the best of both
You know the best of both worlds

Pictures and autographs
You get your face in all the magazines
The best part is that
You get to be whoever you wanna be

Yeah, the the best of both
(Best, best) You got the best of both
(Best, best) Come on, the best of both

Who would've thought that a girl like me
Would double as a super star?

You get the best of both worlds
Chill it out, take it slow
Then you rock out the show
You get the best of both worlds
Mix it all together
And you know that it's the best

You get the best of both worlds
Without the shades and the hair
You can go anywhere
You get the best of both girls
Mix it all together, oh yeah
It's so much better
'Cause you know you got
The best of both worlds
