Host Jimmy Fallon addressed the tragedy straight up, before Miley Cyrus and Adam Sandler performed a special and extremely touching tribute to honour the victims.
“We woke up to the news of another senseless shooting, this time in Las Vegas,” an emotional Fallon said.

“In the face of tragedies and acts of terror we need to remember that good still exists in this world.
“We’re here to entertain you tonight and that’s what we’ll do. Ladies and gentlemen with a little help from Adam Sandler, Miley Cyrus.”
“No Love without Freedom … No Freedom without LOVE ❤️ Thank you so much to Adam Sandler for joining me tonight in remembering all those lost, and singing lyrics that I believe are so important at this time…. ” Miley wrote on social media following the duo’s performance of Dido’s ‘No Freedom.’
The powerful tribute has already touched the hearts of hundreds of people around the world.
“When words fail, music speaks”… Beautiful tribute,” one person commented.
