Unsurprisingly, the best part of Dolly Parton's Grammy Awards tribute on Sunday, Feb. 10 was Parton herself.

The 73-year-old took the stage to celebrate her honor as the Recording Academy’s annual person of the year, and understandably, a number of stars wanted to celebrate alongside her.

The tribute kicked off with country singer Kacey Musgraves and pop star Katy Perry, who performed "Here You Come Again" alongside Parton.

Miley Cyrus — who performed alongside Shawn Mendes earlier in the evening — was next in line, and the two chose a duet of "Jolene" for their segment together.

Later on, Parton and Cyrus were joined by Maren Morris for a spirited rendition of "After the Gold Rush," and Little Big Town wrapped up the tribute with a performance of "Red Shoes" and "9 to 5."

While Parton's fellow performers were impressive, her performance was nothing short of perfection, and it's no small feat considering her last Grammys show was nearly two decades ago.


As if the tribute wasn't enough, Parton also shared a new song from Netflix's acclaimed film, Dumplin'.

In other words, 73 is the age to be.

The 61st Grammy Awards took place Sunday, February 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Singer Alicia Keys hosted the event. Camila Cabello, Janelle Monae, and Shawn Mendes and Miley Cyrus, and other major artists performed.
