A lucky crowd in London got to witness the live, acoustic debut of Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson's new collaboration "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" on Friday night (Dec. 7).   

The track -- Cyrus's first since the drop of Younger Now, her 2017 album -- embraces a Nashville-bred twang and a "Jolene" vibe, and the collaborators opted to strip down the production for an intimate performance in Ronson's hometown.

Ronson brought Cyrus to the stage to sing along with the recorded backing track, but Cyrus took control: she started belting out the single a cappella while encouraging her fans to join her. She made it through a few verses before Ronson grabbed a guitar and started picking along, and the crowd sang every word back to them.

It's an excellent end of the week for Ronson in particular, as the producer scored three nominations for this year's Grammy Awards. He earned two nods for "Shallow," which he co-wrote with Lady Gaga and for A Star Is Born, and "Electricity," the Dua Lipa-featuring first single from Silk City, his duo with Diplo.
