    Miley Cyrus Seriously Impressed People In Her "Black Mirror" Episode


    So, the fifth season of Black Mirror dropped last night on Netflix.

    One of the episodes, called โ€œRachel, Jack, and Ashley Tooโ€ features Miley Cyrus as the star character. In it, she plays a pop star called Ashley as she navigates performing and fame.

    Cyrus even posted a pic of Ashley on Twitter and changed her name to "Ashley O."

    Ashley O. Your new favorite pop star / best friend . ๐Ÿ’œ #BlackMirror @netflix

    A lot of people who have seen it are absolutely loving Cyrus in the role.


    Some even stayed up late to watch.

    me: black mirror is scary as shit no way im watching it late at night black mirror: we have an episode with miley cyrus me, at 3am:

    To put it lightly, they are impressed.

    Just watched the new @blackmirror feat. @MileyCyrus and its REALLY good. Love the way the show takes reality and ONLY JUST tweaks it. Super sinster, Miley is great in it... Now I'm worried about all my fave pop stars. Hope you're OK huns. @NetflixUK

    Seriously impressed.

    Remember when people tried to say Miley Cyrus couldn't act?? #BlackMirror

    A few people saw deeper meanings in the episode.

    The Black Mirror episode with Miley Cyrus is deep. Her character is literally unconscious and they extract music from her brain to sell. If this isnโ€™t a metaphor for the industry and how pop stars are exploited. They donโ€™t care about /you/, just the money they can make /from/ you


    isnโ€™t the Miley Cyrus Black Mirror episode basically just telling her story of breaking away from Disney ๐Ÿ’€

    In true Black Mirror fashion, it's like real life but even darker.

    the end of black mirror is giving me serious freaky friday vibes ๐Ÿ˜‚ #BlackMirrorseason5

    One person applauded her version of Nine Inch Nails "Head Like a Hole."

    miley cyrus singing 'head like a hole' by nine inch nails in black mirror, uh YES

    In short, she's getting some pretty ecstatic reviews.

    Miley really did an amazing performance. She really made me laugh, cry and dance through all episode. It is really her best performance, so sad the episode wasnt that long. #BlackMirror

    Mayyybe, just maybe, this is the acting performance we never knew we needed!
