A clip of Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes rehearsing for their Dolly Parton tribute performance they've been teasing on Instagram has been posted onto Twitter and people can not wait to hear the full thing at the "Person Of The Year" Tribute Concert hosted by the Recording Academy ahead of the Grammy's.

Musgraves and Perry began the tribute with Parton's "Here You Come Again", with the duo sporting teased hair and bright red outfits.

Miley Cyrus then arrived onstage with her signature low-voiced growl to deliver a rousing performance of "Jolene" alongside Parton, who is also her godmother. The last verse was done completely acapella to a silent audience swaying their arms along to the rhythm. Parton wrote the original song "Red Shoes" for the film, and brought it to the Grammys stage with assistance from country quartet Little Big Town. She was joined by Grammy favorites Little Big Town.
