Miley Cyrus paid tribute to George Clooney with amazing 'Man of Constant Sorrow' song

George Clooney received the highly acclaimed Lifetime Achievement Award. Miley Cryus dedicated a very relevant song to him earlier this week.

The American Film Institute threw a gala in honor of the beloved actor. Miley Cyrus performed a special song as a tribute.

Clooney, 57, is also a director, producer, and writer and has several top films under his belt. 1997's "Batman & Robin" and 2001's "Ocean's Eleven" are just a couple.

One of his most notable roles was in "O Brother, Where Are Thou" from December 2000. He played the character Ulysses Everett McGill who becomes part of a group called The Soggy Bottom Boys.

The trio gains popularity when they lip-sync "Man of Constant Sorrow." That's the song Cyrus performed on Thursday at the Los Angeles Dolby Theatre.

She was introduced by Bill Murray. According to Country Music Nation, Clooney and Cyrus became friends after her appearance on a "Very Murray Christmas" in 2015.

At the gala, Murray referred to Cyrus as "America's sweetheart," to which Cyrus responded:

"He's the only one who thinks I'm sweet."

She then belted out her rendition of the timeless song. She was accompanied by a group of fiddlers and banjo players.

Cyrus was sure to look the part as she sang the western song. She was donned in a loose white blouse intentionally ruffled. Her black long pants opened slightly at the legs. She topped it off with a pageboy cap.

The 25-year-old singer is currently engaged to Liam Hemsworth. She shared fun glances with the honoree as he sat next to his wife and barrister Amal Clooney.

Cyrus, daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, is reportedly working on something new.

She was photographed in a blue patterned jumpsuit earlier this week in Los Angeles.

The pop singer hilariously entertained fans on "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon" last year. She sang a duet with the host in remembrance of a performance from the 1983 Grammy Awards.

The pair recreated the performance of "Islands in the Stream" by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. They even wore similar costumes as Parton and Rogers did.

Cyrus also played games and did a performance amidst her interview. She was promoting her most recent album "Younger Now."
