Dolly Parton Denies Miming At Glastonbury Festival
A spokesperson for the country star has insisted people "don't know an amazing singer when they hear one" after claims she lip-synched...
Following her set on the Pyramid Stage - which saw Dolly sing hit tracks Jolene and 9 to 5 - fans soon took to Twitter to accuse the country star of lip-synching.
It is thought the speculation came after she performed a breathy rap about Glasto - which came complete with a chorus about mud - with Dolly following it up with a note-perfect rendition of Banks Of The Ohio.
Sky News anchor Kay Burley was quick to question Parton on Twitter, writing: "Oh, Dolly is miming. How disappointing."
Comedian and actor Stephen Fry then rushed to defend Dolly, tweeting: "I think I know quite a lot about how TV is made. Why are people saying @DollyParton is miming? She's fooling me.
Believe me, that is not miming. If it appears not always to lip-sync that’s an HD live processor issue. You see it with news reporters.

Fry added: "Believe me, that is not miming. If it appears not always to lip-sync that's an HD live processor issue. You see it with news reporters."
Parton's spokesperson later insisted that Parton's vocals were live, telling The Sunday Mirror: "She sings live. Some people don't know an amazing singer when they hear one."
