Dolly Parton helps Miley Cyrus win over 'Voice' contestant

Dolly Parton helped her goddaughter Miley Cyrus get one of Tuesday night's contestants on "The Voice" to join Cyrus' team.

East Tennessee’s Dolly Parton helped her goddaughter Miley Cyrus win over a contestant against Alicia Keys on NBC’s “The Voice."

Sophia Urista sang the Beatles’ classic “Come Together” on Tuesday night’s show.

Cyrus and Keys were battling for Urista to join their respective teams.

“You sounded like a rock and roll Dolly Parton to me,” Cyrus said of Urista’s performance. “It was high, but it was sweet, but it had so much growl and power, and like this little vibrato shakiness you had to it. I mean Dolly did ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ and that’s what it reminded me of.”

Cyrus then got Urista to watch a video with Parton in it.

“Hey everybody it’s Dolly,” Parton said in the video. “You have just got to pick Miley because she’s my goddaughter.”

Urista, who lives in New York City and is originally from Detroit, followed Parton’s advice.

“The Voice” airs on WBIR at 8 p.m. ET Mondays and Tuesdays.
