Miley Cyrus has been added to the list of artists performing at this year’s Super Bowl.

The pop star will perform at a pre-game event to an audience of vaccinated healthcare workers at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Cyrus shared the news late on 24 January, following an announcement by the NFL that it would allow 22,000 people to attend Super Bowl LV. Frontline healthcare workers will receive free admission.

“I can’t wait to put on a show for the NFL’s honoured guests before the game,” Cyrus wrote on Twitter. “Health care workers from Tampa and around the country!”

The performance will air on TikTok and CBS on 7 February, beginning at 2.30pm ET (7.30pm GMT).

This year’s Super Bowl halftime show is being headlined by The Weeknd, while R&B artist HER will sing “America the Beautiful”, and Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

Cyrus released her latest album, the rock-influenced Plastic Hearts, late last year.
