Stocked with behind-the-scenes footage and performances from her upcoming shows in Spain and Portgual, Cyrus’ NBC special should be an interesting test in network editing. The Bangerz tour has been a notoriously risqué affair, with the singer’s raunchy performance including the riding of an inflatable penis.

Music programming remains a hot commodity for TV networks: HBO recently announced a 10-part miniseries featuring highlights from Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter World Tour. Dubbed Beyoncé: X10,” a series of four-minute concert segments from the tour with air every Sunday evening ahead of the final season of True Blood. 

Cyrus stayed busy while on the road for her Bangerz tour. After performing together onstage in Los Angeles, Cyrus and the Flaming Lips hit the studio to record what Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne calls “completely weird” versions of the Beatles‘ “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” and “A Day in the Life.”

The “We Can’t Stop” singer says she hopes to write music with the Lips for her next album. “On my last record, everything we did was with computers,” she told Rolling Stone. “But they’re real musicians – they can change keys on a whim. I’ve never seen anything like it. They’ve had me on this journey that’s greater than anything I’ve been on. It’s really deep.”
