Dolly Parton was joined by more than a dozen of the top-recording artists to perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more took on the timeless hits of Dolly Parton at the 61st annual Grammy Awards in a performance befitting the queen of country music.

Several of those ditties were honored during Sunday's tribute, in addition to performances of "After the Gold Rush", Parton's newest song "Red Shoes" and, of course, the iconic "9 to 5". Let us know in the comments (below)!

Parton stunned with some excellent vocals, kicking things off with Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry on "Here You Come Again" before duetting with her goddaughter Cyrus on "Jolene".

It was another movie soundtrack song that brought the tribute to a rousing close, however, when all of the performers from the segment returned to the stage alongside Parton to knock out her 1980 Oscar-nominated hit "9 to 5".

Parton, whose career began with appearances at the age of 10 on radio stations in her native Tennessee, began her speech with a joke that made light of her backcountry roots. She thanked her "Aunt Dolly" after the performance.

"I met her, and I was trying to not quote Steel Magnolias at her obnoxiously", Morris said of Parton's classic 1989 film. One of only seven women to win the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award, Parton was also inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999.

Dolly herself shared her delight about the event, saying, "I am so excited and humbled to be honored as MusiCares Person of the Year".

Pink performs during a gala event honoring Dolly Parton as the MusiCares Person of the Year, ahead of the Grammy Awards, in Los Angeles, California, U.S., February 8, 2019.

The tribute to Dolly Parton was slated to be number six in the musical lineup on Sunday night, televised live on CBS News and starting at 8 p.m.
