WATCH: Miley Cyrus Performs ‘Jolene’ with Dolly Parton
On Tuesday night (Nov. 29, 2016), the “We Can’t Stop” singer was joined by Dolly Parton, Cyrus’ godmother and the woman who turned the little ditty into a smash hit, for a show-stopping duet. Performed completely a cappella with Pentatonix providing backing vocals, the godmother-and-goddaughter duo did not disappoint as they completely crushed the country tune and made it into a toe-tapper that will surely get stuck in your head.
“It’s great that she has someone like Dolly to idolize, someone to look up to,” Billy Ray Cyrus, who befriended Parton in the ’90s, said of his daughter’s connection with the music legend back in 2010. “Having that type of influence in her life, it’s so amazing and so special.”
Preach, papa. Preach.
