Katy Perry Panned for Dolly Tribute

Featured Posts

The stars were out in full force to pay tribute to Dolly Parton at the Grammys, but there was one singer that stood out from the others - and not in a good way. 

Many were confused as to why Katy Perry was included in the mix of country stars who joined Parton on stage to celebrate her 50-year career. 

And they were less than impressed with her rendition of Here You Come Again. 

Perry took to the stage with Kasey Musgraves to kick-off the tribute with Parton's 1977 hit, sporting matching red and gold outfits. 

Parton then joined the pair on stage before singing Jolene with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus. 

Maren Morris and Little Big Town also joined Parton on stage before the entire group came back to perform '9 to 5', one of the country icon's most famous tunes.  

While the tribute itself received plenty of praise on Twitter, Perry was panned by critics. 

Here are some examples from Twitter:

Honestly, I thought she was fine. She was wacky and over the top, which is her brand. But she sounded ok to me. Even if it took a lot more effort from her than anyone else. Lol

She really isn’t doing herself any favours, it’s like she was trying to outshine Kasey but it just wasn’t happening. :rip:

You could probably pick and choose the same trolls criticizing Gaga. Honestly, Katy was a bit random, but whatever.

personally, I thought she did just fine, just that her pop voice didn't suit the song they sang, and I think that she's just not respected by the country music community, hence the huge backlash, and honestly it was hard enough for her to be singing with kacey musgraves and dolly parton :rip:

I actually legit thought that after Gaga did C2C and Witness happened that Katy was gonna see the parallels of the ARTPOP era and the Witness era and truly to do an era of country in the same way Gaga did an era of jazz, and that she would do that with Dolly after that first time Katy and Dolly performed together. 

And then Gaga went all Shania Twain with Joanne before Katy could do anything :ally:

Because I mean let’s be real, whether it’s on purpose or unconscious Katy took notes when Gaga did stuff. It won’t surprise me if she’s got a Vegas residency by 2020 lol.

Katy Perry actually didn't sound as bad surprisingly - but she can't do country... She should have practiced on that twang a lot longer

She was the one person in that tribute who struggled to sing. She also came across as making a joke out of it. (although I’m sure that wasn’t her intention) This appearance didn’t do her any favors.

I think Katy did just fine. Is she an absolutely amazing vocalist? No. But that’s not her brand. I don’t think she did a bad job. I think people just like to hop on the Katy hate train. My mom was complaining about her before Katy even opened her mouth I was like “can you listen before you judge?”.
