Miley Cyrus left an American Idol wannabe stunned when she showed up to mentor her for a live performance on the talent show on Wednesday night.
Cyrus was invited to help music mogul and show regular Jimmy Iovine advise teenager Lauren Alaina, who is a huge fan of The Climb singer.

Iovine asked Cyrus to be a part of the show after regretting comments he made on the program, suggesting the 16 year old was “a much stronger singer than Miley Cyrus”.

An Idol source tells, “Jimmy apologized and personally asked Miley to come on.”

It’s one of the last appearances Cyrus will make before taking the stage for the beginning of her Gypsy Heart world tour in Ecuador on Friday.
