Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton's Voices Blended Gorgeously While Covering 'Jolene'

It was a night to remember.

Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton Count Down to Midnight | Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party on NBC

Miley Cyrus knows how to throw a party, and her festive flair was in full force for the Miley’s New Year's Eve Party special on NBC, co-hosted by none other than the gloriously glamorous Dolly Parton. 

The night was packed full of jaw-dropping musical performances, with Cyrus calling in an outstanding lineup of talent, including Latto, FLETCHER, Rae Sremmurd, and Sia (to name just a few). But the entertainment didn't end there: Saturday Night Live side-splitters Chloe Fineman and Sarah Sherman also stopped by to give NBC audiences a few laughs, joined by the digital short savants Please Don’t Destroy

With a star-studded lineup like that ringing in the new year, it's safe to say that 2023 began on a high note. But lest we forget that Cyrus and Parton, everyone's favorite godmother-daughter duo, were the fierce forces behind the fantastic celebration. Let's look back at Cyrus and Parton's legendary performances from the night.

Parton looked stunning in a black and leopard body suit, while Cyrus rocked a form-fitting black dress perfect for the headbang-inducing performance. Let's be honest, Parton and Cyrus dancing together while air guitar-ing is a historic moment.

Cyrus has countless bangers under her belt, but "Wrecking Ball" is a bonafide fan favorite, making this duet with Parton super special. Parton seamlessly harmonized with Cyrus' powerful belt, with each verse more powerful than the last.

Cyrus had the crowd in the palm of her hand during the final performance of the night when she said, "Wait, Dolly, I forgot something. I flew from L.A., you flew from Nashville all the way to Miami, and we didn't even do 'Jolene.'" Well, Parton couldn't have that, now could she? Cue the crowd going absolutely wild, and for good reason.
