The latest Miley Cyrus pomo for the television stage was revealed on Jan. 20, but it stirs confusion and it may be her vocals that are stripped down this time. Miley Cyrus is the latest act announced for “MTV Unplugged.”

The popular music series asks artists to debut acoustic sets without the full band. The network revealed late Monday night that Miley’s “Unplugged” episode will air Jan. 29.

“Miley’s vision for the performance is like nothing we’ve ever seen,” Amy Doyle, MTV’s executive VP of music and talent programming strategy, said in a news release. “I can say that this will easily be one of the most memorable ‘Unplugged’ performances to date.”

That means surprise special guests and “intimate reinventions” of “Bangerz” tracks, according to the MTV promo.

Miley joins a long list of guests who have been on “Unplugged,” and the promo sets the stage up on what the audience can expect. Although this one is a bit bizarre.

The show was one of the network’s most influential in the 1990s. It debuted in November 1989 and went on to feature artists like Paul McCartney, Nirvana, Mariah Carey, Bob Dylan, Hole and Alanis Morissette. Many performers released recorded albums of their “Unplugged” stints that went on to be substantial hits on the Billboard albums chart.

The 21st-century version, known as “Unplugged 2.0,” airs less frequently than the series used to. It’s featured Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys as well as a cadre of unexpected artists like Korn and Lil Wayne. Florence + the Machine took the stage in 2012.

As for Miley and the promo, it doesn’t entail what she will do later this month on the show. From the looks of the promotional art released in conjunction with the announcement, the 21-year-old singer will bring her usual flair to the “Unplugged” stage. The photo posted to the singer’s Instagram features her topless and looking wistful while wearing pasties, fake buck teeth and a bleach-blond wig.

Of course, the entire Miley art promo itself could just be an act to get people to watch her on MTV.
