Coach Miley Cyrus and a-cappella group Pentatonix to perform 'Jolene' with Parton, who will also sing 'Circle of Love' with co-star Jennifer Nettles & top 10 artists 

Country music legend Dolly Parton is set to perform two songs on the Tuesday, Nov. 29 (8-9 p.m.) live telecast of NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice." The stakes are high on this night as the top 10 artists face double-elimination, and only eight artists will advance to the semifinals. 

Season 11 coach Miley Cyrus and Grammy Award-winning a-cappella group Pentatonix will join Parton to perform her hit classic "Jolene." Cyrus is Parton's goddaughter. 

Also, Parton will debut her single "Circle of Love" - which was recorded especially for her upcoming NBC film - alongside Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Jennifer Nettles and the top 10 artists.

Parton and Nettles will co-star in the upcoming holiday sequel "Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love" airing Wednesday, Nov. 30 (9 p.m. ET/PT). In the two-hour movie, the Partons, a family of humble means living in the mountains of Tennessee, face a devastating event that challenges their will. But when they experience a bewildering Christmas miracle, the Partons are drawn closer together than ever - with deepened faith and love for one another.
