It was a nice day for a "White Wedding."

Miley Cyrus shared the stage with Billy Idol during her TikTok Tailgate pregame concert performance in Tampa Bay Sunday before Super Bowl 55, bringing the rocker onstage with a simple, "Hey, Billy Idol."

After singing their Plastic Hearts collaboration "Night Crawling," the two joined forces for Idol's 1980s hit "White Wedding" with Cyrus, dressed in a pink and black cheerleader outfit (and matching knee pads), dancing suggestively in between vocal turns.

Cyrus kicked off the TikTok Tailgate, her first concert in more than a year, with her own take on Toni Basil's "Mickey," turning the lyrics to "Miley" when asking the crowd to sing along. She performed "Prisoner," covered Blondie’s "Heart of Glass," Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole," and Dolly Parton's "Jolene."

Rocker Joan Jett joined Cyrus on the stage.

"An introduction seems insulting," said Cyrus as Jett took the stage. Instead the two gave a spirited version of "Bad Reputation," "Bad Karma" and "I Hate Myself for Loving You."

Cyrus got emotional during one section of the concert. "I wear a lot of glitter and I wear a lot of armor, but I also wear my heart on my sleeve, and it gets broken a lot,” Cyrus said before transitioning into her song "The Climb."

The NFL announced last month that 7,500 vaccinated health care workers had been invited to attend Super Bowl 55 at the Raymond James Stadium to watch the concert. Cyrus gave props to the workers during the show. "I could not imagine a better way to do this with all these health care heroes," said Cyrus from the stage. "Surrounded by the people making this show possible. We are so appreciative of you and all your diligence. And for that we are going to rock hard."

Idol, 65, and Cyrus, 28, both posted appreciative social media posts about the performance from the same seat of motorcycle, each writing "Hot in the City."

"Hot In The City @MileyCyrus -BFI," Idol wrote on Twitter.
