Noah Cyrus Makes An Impressive Late Night Debut On ‘Fallon’
A certain TV performance made me (cry) this week, but it wasn’t Noah Cyrus’ late night TV debut. The 17-year-old makes a great first impression on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon — belting out rising hit “Make Me (Cry)” with collaborator Labrinth. After a cautious start (she looked a little nervous), the unlikely pair find their groove and deliver an accomplished performance. I particularly enjoyed this arrangement of the song. It’s a little more raw and acoustic than the synth-heavy studio version.
It’s shaping up to be a big week for Noah. The break-out artist revealed that her debut LP is called NC-17 on Twitter yesterday (January 30) and “Make Me (Cry)” officially passed 100 million streams. The emotional anthem is also shooting up iTunes on the back of a discount and last night’s Fallon performance. It’s currently perched at number 14 and looks set to go a lot higher. All of this points to a new chart peak on the Billboard Hot 100 next week. Watch Miley’s little sister do her thing up top.
