Wayne Coyne Teams Up with Miley Cyrus in Los Angeles

Never one to shy away from a bizarre sit-in, The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd jumped on stage with pop star Miley Cyrus last night in Los Angeles, as Cyrus continued her Bangerz Tour at Staples Center.

Cyrus, who is a well-known fan of Coyne and the Lips’ work, admitted she was terrified to perform with Coyne. The trio, along with members of Cyrus’ band, performed The Flaming Lips’ 2002 hit “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part One.”

While the first rendition of the song didn’t go particularly well, prompting Miley and Wayne to admit their level of inebriation, the trio performed the song again, in a rare pop show moment. Before The Flaming Lips left the stage, unabashed fan Miley Cyrus exclaimed, “This is the best night of my life.”
