Best Beatles Trip-Out: Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd joined Miley Cyrus onstage from Manchester, England, to perform the Beatles' 1967 classic "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." Coyne, wearing a silver confetti jacket and skintight body suit with confetti dangling from his crotch, traded verses with the singer, crashed a nearby cymbal with timpani mallets and dropped to his knees to kiss Cyrus' feet. The pair slowed down the original track, extending and repeating the word "gone" while blasts of confetti festooned the duo. Did it piss off Beatles purists? Probably. But it's also the only time you'll see an indie oddball like Coyne at an award show celebrating the most popular mainstream artists.
