Miley Cyrus gives a shoutout to her godmother Dolly Parton with her mom Tish on SNL

Miley Cyrus paid tribute to her godmother Dolly Parton when she opened Saturday Night Live with a stirring rendition of her classic Light Of A Clear Blue Morning in honor of Mother’s Day.

The 28-year-old pop star flexed her smoky vocals for the heartfelt ballad, which was paused periodically for the entire SNL cast to bring out their own mothers for some cute wisecracks.

Miley capped off the performance with her mother Tish Cyrus by her side as the rest of the cast and their mom’s swayed with her ahead of Elon Musk‘s monologue as the evening’s host.

Happy Mother’s Day! Miley Cyrus, 28 opened Saturday Night Live by singing her godmother Dolly Parton’s classic Light Of A Clear Blue Morning while the cast appeared with their moms

Despite the sweet nature of the opening segment, Miley was as risqué as ever in a white button-up shirt with breast-like padding over her chest, which she wore with a thick black belt around her midriff.

She sported the spiky mullet she’s worn in recent months, though it had grown long enough for her to tie the back into a ponytail. 

Kate McKinnon was the first cast member to arrive with her mother, who joked that she wanted her to perform the popular Mary Katherine Gallagher character, even though that was a fixture of long-departed performer Molly Shannon.

Still, Kate gave in and shouted ‘Mother’s Day’ while assuming the same pose Shannon did for ‘Superstar!’

Chris Redd’s mother looked happy to see him after so long, until she jokingly revealed they hadn’t been playing it very safe amid the pandemic.

The show included a hilarious parody of dark crime shows, most recently HBO’s Mare Of Easttown, with Kate McKinnon and Alex Moffat playing detectives.

Kate was the lead detective with ‘a very specific accent, which lead her to pronounce daughter as ‘dirter.’

‘You’ve seen dead teens in New York, Chicago and Boston, but what about another city with very specific whites, Pennsylvania whites,’ intoned the narrator sinisterly over images of dying steel mill towns.

The trailer advertised the show as ‘starring an actress with a messy ponytail that says “Forget I’m actually British.”‘

Kate also joked that everyone in her precinct was related to her in some way to underscore the fake show’s small-town nature.

She wasn’t amused when Michael Che asked her about the trip. 

‘The happiest place on Earth? For who? I am not happy. I am tired,’ she said wearily.

‘I stood in line for two hours on Splash Mountain so I could sit my haggard a** in a log flume, only for the log flume to break down,’ she complained

‘I don’t get to break down, I just keep on getting my back blown out,’ with Michael suggesting ‘that sounds like a very different thing.’

She complained about men no longer finding her appealing since she was constantly worn out. ‘Men used to buy me appetizers. Multiple appetizers!’

Miley made her sole appearance in a sketch during the night in a pre-taped sketch featuring Elon Musk as himself leading a control room on Earth as his Mars colony was in danger of running out of oxygen.

Someone on the colony would have to go outside to fix the oxygen valves, but they would surely perish from the high radiation.

Luckily, Pete Davidson’s popular Chad character was there to volunteer.

‘Chad, I want you to know you won’t survive this mission,’ Elon dramatically intones to Chad, who replies with his trademark, ‘OK.’

Miley played another member of the Mars colony who had a previous relationship with Chad and wishes him well.

‘God, I wish we could make love just one last time,’ she says, and suddenly Chad drops his space suit to reveal his (censored) nude body.

‘— But we can’t,’ she adds, and he’s instantaneously clothed again.

After she tells him that she’s pregnant and he’s going to be a father he rushes outside to certain death.

He’s able to turn the air back on, and Elon and everybody back on Earth cheers him before putting a video feed of his face on screens in metropolises across the globe.

But when Elon tells him to give them a better look at his face, Chad absentmindedly starts to take his helmet off, causing him to explode and coat the inside of his helmet in gory red jelly that gets broadcast across Earth.

Miley helped wrap up the show with her final musical performance of the night, this time with the title track from her November 2020 album Plastic Hearts.

The album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 album charts and was her best charting release since 2013’s Bangerz, though Black Friday distribution challenges prevented her from having any physical copies in stores on her release date.
