During the performance, Cyrus even addressed the controversy surrounding The Tonight Show‘s previous night visit from Donald Trump, where host Jimmy Fallon was accused of taking it too easy on the candidate.

“There is nowhere I would rather be than in New York City playing this song with the Roots, and being on Jimmy Fallon with our host, who is always so much fun, except when you’re Donald Trump. And then don’t even think about messing with my hair, I’m serious.”

Cyrus’ presence was all over The Tonight Show Friday as the new Voice cast member talked about being on that show, gave Fallon a yoga lesson and played an uncomfortable game of Phone Booth:
