But Dolly Parton is now facing claims that she lip-synced her way through her Sunday afternoon Glastonbury set.

The legendary singer played an 80 minute show of wall-to-wall classics including 9 to 5, Coat of Many Colours and Jolene.

Comedian Stephen Fry was quick to swoop in and defend the country star, tweeting that there are few people in the world he admires more before adding:

For what it’s worth – in our highly unscientific opinion – it didn’t seem like lip syncing to our eyes (though perhaps an unfortunate case of mouth paralysis from having a touch too much work done).

Despite the rumoured guest appearance of Miley Cyrus never actually coming through, the rhinestone studded diva still hugely entertained the 100,000 strong crowd with tales of growing up in a family of ‘randy hillbillies,’ and playing (or in this one case maaaaaaybe miming) the Benny Hill Theme Tune on a crystal coated saxophone.

She finished the career spanning set with her huge ballad I Will Always Love You (and we most certainly will, Dolly. Even if it does turn out you were miming).

The Glastonbury Weekend also saw performances from headline groups Arcade Fire, Kasabian and Metallica.
