Miley Cyrus Hung Out Backstage with alt-J Last Night

alt-J‘s “Hunger of the Pine,” the lead single off their new album This is All Yours, initially made some waves for a couple things, among them a sample of Miley Cyrus‘ vocal on her song “4×4” featured quite prominently multiple times on the track.

At last night’s KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas, that sorta-collaboration almost came to fruition.

Cyrus was backstage at the event, held at Los Angeles’ The Forum—and according to sources close to the band, alt-J considered bringing Cyrus onstage to perform her “I’m a female rebel” line from the song unannounced as a total surprise.

However, the cameo was nixed at the last minute, and “Hunger of the Pine” was performed as usual: with Cyrus, but not a live Cyrus, despite the singer being just a call away backstage.
