Parton's stunning performance came after she released her first holiday album in 30 years, "A Holly Dolly Christmas," on October 2. The album featured Miley Cyrus, Willie Nelson, and Michael Buble.
Parton was not the only star to perform on the night as other stars like Kelly Clarkson, Tori Kelly, Gwen Stefani, Meghan Trainor, Brett Eldredge, and many others also hit the stage.
"Today Show" co-hosts Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin, Al Roker, and Savannah Guthrie hosted the show, though there was no live audience due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Parton jokingly admitted that she and Dean are sick of each other.
Despite the lack of a live audience, all the artists that performed gave it their all to ensure that the night was filled with entertainment that would have lifted the spirits of viewers at home.
The event ended with the lighting of the iconic Rockefeller Christmas Tree, the world's most famous Christmas tree. This year's edition marked the 88th annual lighting ceremony of the tree's lighting.
The tree was lit up with more than 50,000 LED lights and topped with a Swarovski crystal. Visitors are allowed to come and view the tree in-person without tickets. However, they must keep all social distancing measures.
Parton is married to Carl Dean. The couple has been married for 54 years, which is quite a remarkable achievement and an exemplary relationship for many people.
However, after staying together for such a long time, the couple can get tired of each other, which Parton jokingly admitted that she and Dean are sick of each other.
Parton and Dean remain hopeless romantics and are still crazy in love despite their many years of being together. They are truly a perfect match for one another.
