Miley Cyrus' Billboard Awards Beatles Cover Blasted on Twitter

Miley Cyrus paid tribute to The Beatles Sunday night with a rendition of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" at the Billboard Music Awards, but the pop star's performance was not up to Twitter's standards.

Cyrus sang the 1967 classic, off the Beatles' iconic "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album, along with Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips.

"Coyne, wearing a silver tinsel jacket and skintight body suit with tinsel dangling from his crotch, traded verses with the singer, crashed a nearby cymbal with timpani mallets, and dropped to his knees to kiss Cyrus' feet," Rolling Stone reported. "The pair slowed down the original track, extending and repeating the word 'gone' while blasts of confetti festooned the duo."

MTV.com's Alicia Lutes said she found some redeeming quality in the performance and the remake.

"That's right: putting Miley and the Lips and the Beatles into a psychedelic funkblender has managed to produce something pretty tripptastic in a 'hitch a ride on a rainbow-pooping-unicorn and hold on' sorta way," Lutes wrote for MTV.com. "It is equal parts weird and wonderful."

The reaction to Cyrus' Billboard performance on social media, though, was brutal.
