Miley Cyrus couldn’t attend the Billboard Music Awards in person, but that didn’t stop her from performing on the award show on Sunday. The singer performed “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” from the UK, where she’s on her BANGERZ tour. She was joined by Wayne Coyne of the The Flaming Lips.

As Gossip Cop reported, the pair recorded their reimagining of The Beatles classic in March. Cyrus and Coyne have emerged as unlikely buddies this year. While it’s not clear how they met, the duo seem to hang out quite frequently, often documenting their exploits on Instagram.

The awards appearance marked Cyrus’ first time on TV since her hospitalization last month. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, the star fell ill with the flu, and then became seriously sicker when she had a major allergic reaction to an antibiotic.

The performance was a great cause for celebration in the wake of her health woes. As was the fact that Cyrus took home not one, but two of the night’s many awards. She won Top Streaming Artist, as well as Top Streaming Song for “Wrecking Ball.” She was also nominated in seven other categories.
