Brace yourselves, teen pop fans, because your brains are about to melt. Photos have surfaced of One Direction's token Irishman, Niall Horan, in the studio with none other than Miley Cyrus. Say what?!

Fresh off of rumors that Harry Styles was flying solo on a side project (which were quickly shot down), Horan was spotted with and snapped by the former 'Hannah Montana' starlet.

Cyrus took to Twitter (where else?) to post photos from her sessions, where she's hard at work on her first album for RCA -- and in case you had any doubt that Horan was, in fact, present, she makes it very clear for you.

 

It's unclear if the two adorable blondes (seriously, their hair is like, identical now) were actually recording together or if they just happened to be in the same place at the same time. Horan's squeaky-clean boy band sound is pretty far removed from the hip-hop vibe that Cyrus is striving for on her new album, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have any surprises up her sleeve. (Especially if they'll garner her the kind of publicity that 1D will inevitably attract!)

But truthfully, if Horan were going to duet with any former Disney diva, we figured it'd be Demi Lovato!
