Originally meant for just a cameo appearance and a single song in Bill Murray’s Netflix Christmas special, “A Very Murray Christmas,” Miley Cyrus ended up being critical to the production, arguably stealing the show with multiple appearances and three songs. In the final cut of the special that aired last night, Miley sings the Christmas classics. “Sleigh Ride,” “Let It Snow” and a soulful rendition of “Silent Night” that is being called by some the special’s most memorable moment.
Yesterday, Vanity Fair ran a piece reprinting quotes from costars Bill Murray and George Clooney raving about Miley’s part in the special – and her willingness to go beyond her original small role in ways that might have saved the special when rapper Rick Ross failed to show for the taping. Bill made headlines when he praised the “Dooo It!” singer, saying “It was stunning to work with her … She came through in a huge way for us.” And George called Miley ” fantastic and fun and a real pro.”
Watch Miley sing in “A Very Murray Christmas” below.
