Watch Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon’s Flawless Performance of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers’ Classic, “Islands in the Stream”
Jimmy Fallon has covered everyone from Adele to Neil Young and everyone in between; the man has made his career being one of the world’s most versatile performers. He can do no wrong when it comes to late night entertainment, and his extensive variety of celebrity guests have made for some of YouTube’s most famous collaborations.
Miley Cyrus is still well, just being Miley. She’s gone from girl next door to wrecking balls, back to fiancés, and back to her country roots. Then there was that, “Cyndersmelly” stage of 2015 that we can collectively agree we are glad she has finally moved past, am I right or am I right?
Then we have Dolly Parton, the woman, the legend (don’t forget the spandex and the hair). She has proven herself for decades to be one of the music industry’s most prized possessions. Her well-known hit, “Islands in the Stream,” was her spectacular 80’s hit with the “Gambler” himself Kenny Rogers, thus the inspiration for the recent collaboration between Fallon and Cyrus.
So what do we get when we combine all three of these phenomena of music and talent? Me screaming in pure millennial glee at my television, go ahead watch and see what I mean!
