Meeting the contestants earlier in the day Parton told them: “I feel very honoured to be in the presence of all of you. What I love about this show is that they pick you based on your talent. I know that some of you are going to be having to go home tonight - but just because you don't win doesn't mean you're not winners.”

“To me, a true success is just being who you are.” The 69 year old also revealed that she still gets nervous, even after all these years. “Once the spotlight hits me I'm OK because I'm there and there's nothing I can do about it now! And if I mess up I try to make a show of that,” Parton said.

During the live show Parton told host Carson Daly about her time meeting the contestants: “They were so sweet and so nice, reminded me of all my big dreams when I was young," Parton said. "I had the chance to give them a little information. They asked for advice, but I said, 'I don't do advice - I'll give you some information.”

“They're so talented.” Turning to the judging panel Parton added: "I love the show, I watch it, and I love this group down there. They’re alright our coaches, they're alright. I was happy to be a part of this show and get a chance to touch some of that greatness with those kids, because some of them you can already tell are gonna be big in this business.”
