    It's almost scary to see/hear how much Miley sounds/looks like her Godmother.

    A+ for costumes and looking like the original. Miley has a great voice and Jimmy is musically talented, but the harmony together didn't quite work.

    Something tells me Miley is using one of her God Mothers actual wigs...
    Jimmy looks like President Snow.

    Perfect. Incredible. For who don’t know this is Barry gibb’s song.

    Gotta say - not a big Miley fan, but she killed this - partly because it was all about the song and not about boobs. She did her Godmother proud, and Jimmy was great (more a tenor than a base, but still great).

    Dolly and Kenny both have unique voices with distinct tonal and phrasing qualities. This was a pleasing rendition of an iconic performance by legendary artists. I have never been a CW music fan, just the opposite, but I know talent and quality when I hear it. Other than not being Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers I see no reason to disrespect a good effort by talented performers who are far above my level and I suspect above all you haters. You display your lack of character with your rude and disrespectful comments. Hopefully you may someday mature a bit to halfway decent human beings.

    Miley didn't look like Dolly at all, but she does look like she stepped out in front of a Mack truck, and her voice sounds like a contestant on the Voice trying to sound like Miley. LOL

    Wow! This was great. Their impressions were spot on. It couldn't have been easy for Miley to hit those notes while imitating Dolly, but she did an incredible job! I love all the Jimmy Fallon music skits. They are very well done.

    Incredible, every time you two get together and sing it's a great time. Kudos to the pair of you.
    If Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton came out this would have been even more awesome. 💖

    Miley is perfect, as usual. Fallon sounds more like Mister Rogers with a head cold than Kenny Rogers.

    It's great, but they still need that "totally country" sound.

  • Gary Gibson
    Gary Gibson 11 days ago

    Nope. I like them both. Really. But Jimmy was flat the entire time and Miley's voice couldn't be more different, stylistically from Dolly's. A cute idea with poor execution in my humble opinion.
