They made this happen by Miley sliding into Shawn’s Instagram DMs! She says, “I actually sent him a DM and said I don’t know what you’re trying to do next because I’ve actually been in his position in his career too before where you’re someone who I think is trying to fit into pop music and you want to be played on pop music but you don’t want to be conformist and you want to do your own thing, I love the way that he always kind of plays alternative pop because it’s something that I love to do.”

So they got together with Mark Ronson and performed the 1983 duet featuring Kenny Rogers, Island In The Stream.

We knew she was working with Shawn, she kept hinting that they were working together, and now we know they were working on the tribute to Dolly Parton together!

They’ll be performing at the Grammys together Sunday night, can’t wait for that!
