She and her father Billy Ray Cyrus performed "Amazing Grace" at the ceremony. 

"Before we sing this song for Janice, I just want to clear up a rumor. I was never her coach, ever, she was always mine," Cyrus said holding back tears. 

"I've learned more from her than anyone that I've ever gotten the honor to be in the room with, not just vocally, I should've gotten more lessons than I did, but she taught me everything that I know about love."

The Malibu singer continued by saying, "And, to be here, and I had planned on singing a song for her, but just losing her is just too much for me."

"So my dad's gonna take care of this for me. But, I'll always be your sister, I'm here for you, and I'm here for your family, and Janice I'll miss you more than I could ever say."

Freeman and Cyrus were more than just partners on a reality competition show, they actually developed a genuine friendship. 

According to Janice, Miley Cyrus took care of her family's security deposit for a temporary two-bedroom apartment to live in early last year, along with the first six months of rent. 

Freeman was quick to acknowledge her sincere gestures on Instagram saying, "Miley, you are my dawg, like, my best friend, and I will defend you to the bitter end."

She even spoke through tears in an Instagram video saying, "This woman blessed me to be able to move in. Do you understand? What she don't know is, I've been praying for her."

The day after Miley heard about her dear friend's passing, she shared a photo to Instagram of a beautiful rainbow. 

Captioning it, "You are now a rainbow. Something beautiful that comes after something so gloomy." 

Rest easy, Janice. Your voice and energy were an inspiration to us all.
