Miley Cyrus was all over Friday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, teaching host Jimmy Fallon yoga moves, participating in a game of Phone Booth, and even referencing Fallon’s interview with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during her musical performance.

Accompanied by some light percussion, acoustic guitar, and upright bass, Cyrus covered Bob Dylan’s “Baby, I’m In the Mood for You” for Tonight Show viewers and audience members. While she delivered on the vocal front, she paused about halfway through the 2013 track to address Fallon and his crowd.

“There is nowhere I would rather be than in New York City playing this song with The Roots, and being on Jimmy Fallon with our host, who is always so much fun, except when you’re Donald Trump,” Cyrus said in part. “And then don’t even think about messing with my hair, I’m serious.”

Fallon was widely criticized for his interview with Trump, during which the GOP nominee praised Matt Lauer for his derided performance during the Commander-in-Chief Forum earlier this month, denied having a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and allowed Fallon to tussle his hair.
