Miley Cyrus broke down in tears during “The Voice” star Janice Freeman’s memorial on Monday.

The Grammy nominee was supposed to sing at the event, but she was too upset to do it. However, Cyrus did say a few words. Janice was only 33 years old when she passed away on March 3 reportedly due to a blood clot.

Monday’s event was supposed to be a celebration of Freeman’s life. However, Cyrus couldn’t hold back her tears, Us Weekly reported. While speaking at the event, the Grammy nominee said that she wanted to clear up a “rumor.” “I was never her coach,” Cyrus said about Freeman.

Liam Hemsworth's wife explained that she learned more from the singer, which made the latter her coach instead of the other way around. “I should have gotten more lessons than I did, but she taught me everything that I know about love,” Cyrus said.

The "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker was supposed to sing, but she asked her father to step in for her and sing “Amazing Grace” instead.

Cyrus previously posted a clip from “The Voice” that showed her and Freeman telling each other that they would do anything for each other. The “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” singer appeared to be just as emotional as Freeman at the time.

“You have been the best thing that has ever happened to me,” Freeman said about Cyrus in the clip.

Cyrus also shared a clip of a letter that Freeman wrote to her, thanking the Grammy nominee for choosing her. Freeman had said that Cyrus not only saved her life, but changed it as well.

The friendship between Cyrus and Freeman appears to have continued after the show. The singer revealed that she made a promise to Freeman when she was still alive.

Cyrus vowed to take care of Freeman’s “precious little girl,” whom she called her “baby sister.” She also promised to “shine light” on Freeman’s husband and mother “when days are dark.”
