GRAMMYs 2019: Dolly Parton's Star-Studded Performance and Tribute

Dolly DID that! 

Dolly Parton, eight-time GRAMMY winner and 2019’s MusiCares Person of the Year, hit the stage at Sunday’s 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards to perform music from the 2018 Netflix film Dumplin' as well as a medley of her iconic hits.

She was joined onstage by a who's who of talented (and mostly female) artists spanning across the country and pop genres, including goddaughter Miley Cyrus along with Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry and Maren Morris.

The performance kicked off with Musgraves and Perry dressed in all red and belting out "Here You Come Again" from the Dumplin' soundtrack. Then Dolly came out to complete the song with them while looking like a million bucks in all white.

Next, Cyrus took the stage to sing "Jolene" with the country legend. As the cameras panned across the audience, you could see the members of K-pop band BTS and singer Toni Braxton jamming along with the performance.

There's more: After that memorable number, Maren Morris came out to sing "After the Goldrush" with Cyrus and Parton, followed by a star-studded rendition of "Red Shoes" with Little Big Town.

For the finale, all of the performers came back to sing their hearts out to Parton's classic hit, "9 to 5."

This was Dolly's first time on the GRAMMYs stage since 2001, and she opened up to ET before the show about being ready to slay!

 

Parton was honored on Friday night with a star-studded tribute concert at the MusiCares gala, featuring performances by Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Cyrus, Perry, Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, Mark Ronson, Pink, Shawn Mendes, Norah Jones, Lauren Daigle, Leon Bridges, Vince Gill, Don Henley, Willie Nelson, Linda Perry and Mavis Staples. 

The 73-year-old Tennessee native was recognized this year for her iconic career and charitable contributions, including her long-running Imagination Library. The children’s literacy organization has donated more than 100 million books to kids around the world since it was founded in 1995.
