‘Wrecking Ball’ singer Miley Cyrus to perform Roy Orbison’s ‘It’s Over’ on ‘Chelsea Lately’ finale


With Chelsea Handler ending “Chelsea Lately,” “Wrecking Ball” hit maker Miley Cyrus is set to perform live on the finale of the talk show. As a tribute to Handler, Cyrus will sing a cover of Roy Orbison‘s “It’s Over.”

After airing its first episode on July 16, 2007, the “Chelsea Lately” will have its live series finale on E! at 11/10c on August 26, 2014. Earlier this year, Handler’s manager Irving Azoff confirmed that the talk show host is leaving E! as soon as her contract expires at the end of this year, which was followed by Netflix’s announcement that a deal was made with her including a talk show and four documentary features.


Aside from Cyrus’ live performance, no further details of the “Chelsea Lately” finale were released. Two days prior to her “Chelsea Lately” guesting, she will attend the upcoming 2014 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

In 2013, Cyrus made a controversial performance with Robin Thicke at the VMA. Hosted by Lucy Hale, the 2014 VMA will open with a trio performance by Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande of their collaboration song “Bang Bang.”


While Cyrus is currently on her “Bangerz” tour in North America, Thicke was recently spotted alone at a grocery store in Beverly Hills almost two months after releasing his seventh studio album “Paula” named after his estranged wife Paula Patton.

It is yet to be confirmed whether Cyrus will perform at the event and whether she will have another duet performance with Thicke if he attends the event. Leading the VMA with eight nominations is Beyonce Knowles, who is receiving the Video Vanguard Award, followed by rappers Eminem and Iggy Azalea each with seven nominations.  

Taylor Swift was the only female artist nominated for Video of the Year in 2013. This year, only one male nominee is contending for the top award.

Competing for the Video of The Year award are Pharrell Williams‘ “Happy,” Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball,” Knowles’ “Drunk In Love,” Azalea’s “Fancy,” and Sia’s “Chandelier.” Meanwhile, here is “It’s Over” by Orbison:
