Miley Cyrus, Mark Ronson Cover Ariana Grande’s ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ At BBC 1 Radio Performance [Watch]

first_imgMiley Cyrus and Mark Ronson are currently in the middle of a global media tour to promote their recently-released collaborative pop single, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”. The latest stop on their media blitz included a live performance on BBC 1 Radio‘s Live Lounge, where the two performed their new single in addition to keeping the show’s tradition of the featured guest doing a contemporary pop cover. Cyrus and Ronson chose to give listeners a wonderful live rendition of Ariana Grande‘s “No Tears Left To Cry” from the singer’s 2018 studio album, Sweetener, which arrived over the summer.Miley’s performance of the emotionally-driven pop ballad required the singer to reach deep within herself to pull out the intensity needed to sing such a heavy song. Cyrus was joined in the broadcasted performance by a small orchestra of violin and cello players, with Ronson seated beside her on the acoustic guitar. The singer showcased both her traditional singing abilities in addition to her rapping skills as she sang along to the lyrics, “I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up, Lovin’, I’m livin’, so we turnin’ up, we turnin’ it up.”The performance even earned some praise from Grande, who gave her pop colleague a shoutout via Twitter. The only real question left for Miley Cyrus after hearing the cover is, “Where can fans get that heart-shaped disco ball hanging behind her during the performance?” Watch the video of the cover performance below:Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson – “No Tears Left To Cry” [Ariana Grande cover] – BBC 1 Radio[Video: BBC 1 Radio]The other performance during the show saw Ronson and Cyrus giving listeners a stripped-down version of “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”. The two were once again joined by a small orchestra, with the addition of a percussionist and a bassist.

She also released a new single on Friday night: with a holiday cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono‘s “(Happy Xmas) War Is Over” with help from the famous couple’s son, Sean Ono Lennon.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)ExpandMIAMI — Whatever it is that ails the Dodgers, there is reason to believe the other symptoms might improve. But the Dodgers’ bullpen is the persistent cough that just won’t go away.Starving for clutch hitting, the Dodgers fairly gorged themselves during a four-run sixth inning that erased an early deficit. But Pedro Baez served up a solo home run to J.T. Realmuto in the bottom of the inning and the Miami Marlins handed the Dodgers another loss, 6-5, Wednesday night.The Dodgers have now lost a season-high six consecutive games, nine of their past 10 and 16 of their past 21. They have fallen into last place in the National League West (percentage points behind the San Diego Padres). Only one team in the NL has fewer wins this season – the Cincinnati Reds, who just swept the Dodgers in a four-game series over the weekend.“Tonight, the silver lining is we put some hits together,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “But the bottom line is we lost another ballgame.” “Well, someone’s going to have to pitch,” Roberts said when asked to explain the choice.“We had (J.T.) Chargois down and you’re in the sixth inning so you’ve got four innings to cover. Pedro’s had three days off. He was rested. Whether it was (Josh) Fields who pitched in that spot or (Daniel) Hudson or Baez – one of those guys is going to have to pitch. All of those guys are going to have to pitch when you’re trying to cover four innings. In that situation, I loved who he was matching up against. It just, unfortunately, didn’t work out tonight.”Realmuto hammered a 1-and-2 changeup from Baez that did little but roll over and ask for it. Whatever momentum-swinging potential the four-run rally had, it was topped by that pitch as the decisive moment in the game.“You keep trying to put these guys in positions to have success,” Roberts said of his bullpen. “You’re mindful of their workload. You try to put them against hitters that you feel they have a great chance to be successful against and you expect them to go out there and put up a zero. I’m going to continue to do what we’ve done.” Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury center_img “I’d say probably not,” Roberts admitted reluctantly. “Not yet.”Wednesday night would have been a good time for it.The Marlins gave Buehler the roughest time of his five big-league starts. They pushed across a run in the first on a two-out RBI single by Brian Anderson then capitalized on an error by shortstop Chris Taylor for another run in the third.When Buehler gave up a two-run home run to Justin Bour in a three-run fifth inning, it was the first time Buehler had given up more than two runs in a start and the Marlins held what had passed for an insurmountable lead against the Dodgers lately.“Just a gigantic, really, really strong human,” Buehler said, marveling at Bour’s ability to take a pitch off the plate and muscle it out down the line in left field. “He’s a Major League Baseball player and a really good hitter.”Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

But Joc Pederson led off the sixth inning with a double off Marlins reliever Junichi Tazawa, moved to third on a fly out and actually scored from there on an RBI single by Yasmani Grandal – the Dodgers’ first hit with a runner in scoring position since Saturday.Three more hits followed in quick succession as if the dam had finally broken – a double by Cody Bellinger, an RBI single by Taylor and a game-tying two-run double by Max Muncy.With Buehler done after a career-high 97 pitches in five innings, Roberts sent Baez out for the sixth.Related Articles Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense The offense has been wanting during this freefall – particularly situational hitting. But the return of Justin Turner gives reason to expect improvement. The starting rotation can look forward to Clayton Kershaw’s eventual return and Walker Buehler’s bright, bright future to fortify it.But no one is painting Tony Cingrani’s return after a 10-day DL (anticipated Saturday) as the move that will set things right in a Dodgers’ bullpen that has Roberts playing Jenga on a nightly basis, wondering which piece will send the whole thing crashing down.Over the past 22 games, Dodgers relievers have surrendered 13 home runs and pitched to a 5.15 ERA with a 1.61 WHIP. Baez took the loss Wednesday, the sixth loss charged to a reliever during this stretch.“It’s one of those things right now – for quite some time, to be quite honest – we haven’t been synced up,” Roberts said.But has this bullpen ever been in sync with anything for more than a game or two here or there?

Jordan Clarkson trade analysis: Jazz give up on Dante Exum dream to get offensive spark

first_imgCleveland, meanwhile, gets a 2014 lottery pick in Exum, as well as much-needed draft ammunition. This could be the first of several midseason moves for the rebuilding team.MORE: SN’s NBA Athlete of the Decade#Cavs are getting a 2022 second from San Antonio and a 2023 second from Golden State in this Utah deal for Jordan Clarkson, sources say.— Chris Fedor (@ChrisFedor) December 24, 2019It’s only December, but NBA trade season is now officially underway. Here’s an in-depth look at how the Clarkson-for-Exum swap could shake up the Jazz and Cavaliers, as well as other teams in the league.Why did the Jazz want Jordan Clarkson?With Conley injured and no indication of when he will be 100 percent, Utah has reinserted Joe Ingles into its starting lineup. While Ingles is thriving in a distributor role alongside Donovan Mitchell, his previous duties as the team’s most assured bench weapon have been vacated. Enter Clarkson, a combo guard used to handling the ball and leading second units in scoring (14.7 career points per game).Clarkson is not a complete player, and Utah won’t ask him to be one. He is notoriously wobbly on defense and streaky on the perimeter. But the Jazz have a strong group of defenders they’ll deploy in an attempt hide Clarkson from difficult matchups (or at least provide help). His lone objective is to get buckets, something he’s been able to do throughout his six years in the NBA.Rather than wait until next month to add a bench option, the Jazz capitalized on the chance to bring in a known commodity without giving up much 2019-20 value.How might Dante Exum fit into Cleveland’s rebuild?There is a chance that Exum, the oft-injured No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 draft, will not be in Cleveland very long.Around this time last year, the Jazz dealt another prospect, Alec Burks, to the Cavaliers in exchange for Kyle Korver and two second-round picks. Burks, who also struggled to stay healthy in Utah, used his time on the Cavaliers as an audition for playoff contenders, and was subsequently dealt to Sacramento later in the campaign. Should Exum perform well in his new home before the trade deadline, a fringe contender needing a backup point guard may look to buy low on him. He is signed through next season.Cleveland, of course, would love to see Exum develop into its lead guard of the future rather than mere trade bait. Collin Sexton and Darius Garland have not yet proven they are long-term backcourt answers for the Cavaliers, and Exum will get the playing time necessary to try and translate his long frame and basket-attacking instincts into consistent NBA production. The Jazz traded 24-year-old guard Dante Exum and a pair of second-round draft picks to the Cavaliers for veteran bench scorer Jordan Clarkson on Monday, bolstering their depth ahead of a grueling fight for Western Conference playoff seeding.The move comes amid a five-game winning streak that has pushed Utah within a game of the Mavericks for the No. 5 seed. Clarkson should give coach Quin Snyder’s stretched rotation some added life with point guard Mike Conley on the shelf due to a hamstring injury. But similar to Burks, who has carved out a niche as a solid role player for Golden State this year, Exum may no longer possess the ceiling that once made him a high first-round draft pick. The Australia native has not played in more than 42 games since the 2016-17 season, and he averaged just 2.2 points in 11 games for the Jazz this year.Does this mean the Cavaliers will trade Kevin Love soon?While the Cavaliers are reportedly listening to trade offers for Kevin Love, moving Clarkson likely does not impact the decision-making process on their star forward. They have no need to rush what will probably go down as the most important transaction of their rebuild, one that must bring back either lottery draft picks or significant young talent.Still, we can expect Love rumors to grow more intense as the Feb. 6 deadline draws nearer.last_img read more
