While chatting with Jimmy, Miley revealed how she got Stevie Nicks’ blessing to include a sample from ‘Edge of Seventeen’ in Midnight Sky, “I said, ‘I have an alternate melody if you don’t want to kind of like pay tribute to you and you and your greatness and how much you’ve inspired me.’  And she said, ‘you can borrow from me anytime.'”

Dressed in a red-sequenced dress, Miley performed a classic from Hall & Oats, Maneater.  Explaining why she chose to cover the song, Miley tells Jimmy, “I think it’s very important to be transparent.  I’m freshly single, so anyone watching that’s my future husband, just know, I told you.”
