The two covered a number of songs, with Jimmy accepting the challenge of transforming “Cotton Eye Joe” into a heartbreaking ballad, and Miley giving a fun Bluegrass version of R Kelly’s “Remix to Ignition”

While both of them were great sports, the Rolling Stone applauds Miley for showing how much stylistic ground she can cover with her singing. When the genre generator prompted her to sing a pop version of “Bodak Yellow” – a hip hop song by Cardi B that is currently number one on the US charts – Miley saw a chance to shine. 

She belted the chorus, adding the appropriate pop performance hand gestures and getting cheers from the audience. Miley took it home by standing up from her seat and really singing her heart out, the way any pop diva worth her salt would.
