Dolly Parton Leads All-Star Tribute (To Herself!) at 2019 Grammys

  • Dolly Parton with Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes

Miley Hemsworth, née Cyrus, jumped on stage at the Grammys for a glorious tribute to Dolly Parton. Parton last performed at the Grammys in 2001 when she collaborated with Nickel Creek and Brad Paisley for a rendition of Billy Joel's "Travelin' Prayer".

Nobody pokes more fun at Dolly Parton - all hair, sequins, nine-inch nails and five-inch stilettos - than the country superstar herself.

The duo is known for busting out a bit of Jolene from time to time, so this certainly wasn't their first rodeo, but I'd wager just about everyone was stoked regardless.

The country singer added that Parton is "a total pro", playfully noting: "She and I are the same height!" "Well, not them", the well-endowed Parton joked in a bawdy acceptance speech. The star-studded event included a brief on stage reunion when the beloved singer-songwriter-actress was joined by her former Trio partners, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. Blending their vocals, Miley kept the melody while Dolly dazzled on her harmonies - but the best harmonizing came right after.

"I'm not getting into any of that", she said a year ago when David Wright of ABC's "Nightline" kept trying to get her to comment on today's politics.

And when she had the stage - she completely rocked it, belting out, among other songs, her theme song from "9 to 5".

"It's been such a thrill for me tonight to see all these great artists singing songs I've written or been a part of", Parton said.
