Miley Cyrus & Dolly Parton sing “Wrecking Ball” / “I Will Always Love You” mashup

With CNN banning Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen from airing, Miley Cyrus has had to shoulder the burden of delivering entertaining New Year’s programs. Luckily, Cyrus did a great job with her second annual NBC special, Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party.

We’ve already highlighted Cyrus’ surprise duet with David Byrne, when the pair teamed up to perform David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” and Byrne’s own “Everybody’s Coming to My House.” Another notable moment came just before midnight when Cyrus teamed up with her godmother, Dolly Parton, for an incredible live mashup of “Wrecking Ball” and “I Will Always Love You.”

Elsewhere during the program, the two performed a mashup of Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight” and Parton’s “Jolene.” Parton, who was newly inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, also offered a possible preview of her upcoming rock album by performing Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock and Roll” with Cyrus. Check out everything below.

Cyrus will also release new single “Flowers” on January 13th.
