Watch Miley Cyrus And Dolly Parton Perform 'Jolene' With Help From Pentatonix

In case you didn't know, Dolly is Miley's godmother.

Earlier this year, Pentatonix released a stunning acapella performance of the country classic "Jolene" with none other than Dolly Parton herself. Tuesday night, during The Voice live results show, they performed it again, with a very special addition — coach Miley Cyrus, who just so happens to be Parton's goddaughter.

The pair has performed together before, and Parton has been supportive of Cyrus's talent and transformation as an artist, saying in 2014, "I just hope that she has a long career and I hope that she gets a chance to do everything she wants to do." Now she can check this amazing collaboration off the list.


Parton and Cyrus make for a dynamic duo, with Pentatonix providing some amazing sounds to back them up. The group (made up of Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, Kevin "K.O." Olusola, Kirstin Maldonado, and Avi Kaplan) never ceases to amaze us with just how much they can do using only their voices

The performance was a good luck charm for Cyrus — both of her remaining team members, Aaron Gibson and Ali Caldwell, were saved from elimination last night. She does have a fairy godmother, after all.
