Miley Cyrus can't stop doing good!

The 27-year-old Tennessee native has done much more than post pajama selfies and pet pics during her quarantine. She's also not one of those stars who promised to do regular Instagram Live sessions but never made good on it. In fact, Cyrus took things a step further.

Just as the virus was ramping up in mid-March, Cyrus launched "Bright Minded: Live With Miley" - a relaxed, at-home series she hosts via Instagram Live before uploading to YouTube later. The half-hour chats feature various friends and influencers at 11:30 AM PT Monday through Friday.

Last night, Cyrus was honored at "WFH: Webby From Home," the virtual celebration for the annual Webby Awards.

Since going online just two months ago, Cyrus' show has already seen a host of big-name guests: Amy Schumer, Rita Ora, Ryan Tedder, Hailey Bieber, Reese Witherspoon, Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, and Paris Hilton are just a few of them.

Cyrus' fellow Disney alum Demi Lovato appeared in the second episode of "Live with Miley" (on March 18th). The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer appeared again on Tuesday to present her longtime friend with the Webby Special Achievement Award.

“What is Miley Cyrus up to? Seriously, though," Lovato asked.

"As we’ve made our way through this unprecedented time, any way to connect and communicate with people to laugh, share stories, to sing with friends; any chance for us to come together joyfully has become vitally important."

"And my friend Miley has provided an outlet for millions of people to do just that.” Lovato informed that Cyrus' show has already reached "over 106 million global viewers."

The award show has a tradition of holding recipients to five-word acceptance speeches. Miley's has been her show's catchphrase since the start: "stay lit in dark times."
