Dolly Parton was joined by more than a dozen of the top-recording artists to perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. The performances were part of a tribute to Parton's songwriting after the country music legend was celebrated for her musical achievements and philanthropic work as MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday night.

She's the first country artist to be saluted in the tribute's 29-year history.

Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves kicked off the medley of Parton's biggest hits by singing "Here You Come Again" before they were joined by Parton wearing a sequined, white dress.

When the 73-year-old stepped out on stage, the crowd started roaring and were brought to their feet.

Parton was then joined by her goddaughter Miley Cyrus to sing "Jolene" before Maren Morris came out to help the singers perform "After the Gold Rush."
