Watch Dolly Parton Team Up With judas priest’s Rob Halford For “Jolene” Performance

Dolly Parton and Rob Halford of Judas Priest performed a surprise duet of “Jolene” at Saturday night’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The video can be seen below.

At the ceremony, both acts were admitted into the club among other notable musicians such as Eminem and Duran Duran. The event took place at an expensive party in Los Angeles.

After being eligible for more than 30 years, Parton was finally nominated for admission into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. As previously stated, Parton has stated that she will not accept admission; the singer-songwriter previously had some reservations about joining rock’s most elite recognition, which honored the likes of Chuck Berry, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Little Richard, and more, but that all changed after she was nominated this year.

After accepting her award, Parton gave a speech on how honored and proud she is with the acknowledgment, labeling herself as a “rockstar.” “I’m a rock star now! This is a very special night for me. I’m sure a lot of you knew that back when they said they were gonna put me in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I didn’t feel like I had done enough to deserve that. And I didn’t understand at the time that it’s about more than that. But I’m just so honored and so proud to be here tonight.”

Parton then gave an incredible rendition of her own classic, “Jolene” joining Judas Priests’ frontman Rob Halford along with other friends: Pat Benatar, Eurythmics, Simon Le Bon, and many more.
