The great Dolly Parton took the stage along with other singers on Sunday night during a special segment and tribute to her and her significant contributions to the music industry over the years.

Grammys every year decides to award the Recording Academy's MusiCares Person of the Year to a legend and this year, it was Dolly Parton.

Katy and Kacey performed "Here You Come Again" before Dolly and goddaughter Miley hit the stage for "Jolene".

The duo was accompanied by Cyrus' collaborator Mark Ronson for a performance of the 1983 Parton duet that feature Kenny Rogers, "Islands in the Stream".

Now that's a cause that, like Parton, deserves a standing ovation.

Cox also urged Herring to "adhere to the standard he has set for others", a nod to Herring's previous call that Northam resign . The civil rights leader said he came to Richmond to deliver a message to the governor: "I'm not going to be your minstrel!"


In her acceptance speech, she said: "I have worked with so many wonderful men".

Gospel singer Yolanda Adams received a standing ovation for "I Will Always Love You", the Parton-penned song famously covered by Whitney Houston. It was a rare public appearance for Ronstadt, who can't sing anymore because of Parkinson's disease, which Parton mentioned.

How many major musicians can fit on one stage to honor Dolly Parton at the Grammys? It was a joyous moment, the love for Parton and her music clear on all of the singers' faces, as well as in the audience (many were spotted dancing along throughout the tribute, including Korean supergroup BTS). And after Dolly gave her signature catchphrase - "Everybody!" - everyone sang together to close off a magical night for the country music singer. "We want to be like you when we grow up".

Dolly is also being recognised for her support of several charitable organisations, including the Imagination Library, which she founded in 1995 to support childhood literacy. "You're not personally involved but you still get off on it". Pictured: The singer attending MusiCares Person of the Year at Los Angeles Convention Center on February 8, 2019. "We may not have sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, but two out of three ain't bad".
