Another photo showed the two arm-in-arm with Mendes wearing a jacket emblazoned with Parton's face on the back along with a caption reading, "this could be the year for the real thing", which happens to be a lyric from "Islands in the Stream". The stars of today got together to pay a heartfelt musical tribute to the musical rockstar.

Anna Kendrick introduced the segment and both Katy Perry (who is a huge Dolly fan) and Kacey Musgraves took the stage to sing the song "Here You Come Again".


Parton received the MusiCares Person of the Year award earlier this week. Cyrus stayed on, while Maren Morris - who was up for five Grammys herself - joined them to round out the trio for a beautifully realized performance of Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush". Dolly Parton's life, music, and legacy was honored by a large lineup of stars including P!nk, Norah Jones, Leon Bridges, Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, and Garth Brooks.

Dolly teamed up with Little Big Town for the song "Red Shoes" which was featured in the new Netflix movie Dumplin'.


Grammy Week culminates with the 61st Annual Grammy Awards® at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10.

"We love you, Dolly", said Perry. Dolly Parton's tribute concluded with everyone taking the stage again to sing "9-5".

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".


Parton, 73, also appeared to touch on some of the concerns of the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct in entertainment and other industries, when she described entering the music business when it was a "man's world".
