Miley Cyrus is all prepped up to deliver the performance of her life at the 2019 Grammy for godmother, Dolly Parton. According to her Instagram tease, Miley will team up with Shawn Mendes for a performance where the Jolene singer is reported to be honoured at the Grammy’s. Having seen Miley doing a spectacular rendition of the Jolene rendition of her godmother, there is no doubt that the Wrecking Ball singer will miss the high note.

Teasing fans for the collab, Miley posted a picture of her and Shawn faced back at the camera, wearing a leather jacket with a Dolly Parton and ‘Playboy’ printed on it.  

Her Insta caption read, “this could be the year for the real thing @recordingacademy @shawnmendes @dollyparton,” , a line taken from Parton's 1983 duet with Kenny Rogers, "Islands in the Stream,". We are hence, preety sure Miley and Mendes will be recreating the iconic tune for the tribute.
