Yesterday (November 23) was Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving means NFL football, and NFL football means halftime shows. The sports league booked a nice roster of performers for this year’s festivities, with Jack Harlow playing the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions game, Dolly Parton performing at the Washington Commanders and Dallas Cowboys match-up, and Steve Aoki taking the contest between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.

It was Parton and Harlow who drew the most attention, though, but for different reasons.

Parton gave it her all, donning a Cowboys cheerleader uniform on a massive stage as she delivered rousing renditions of her own “Jolene” and “9 To 5” and Queen’s “We Are The Champions” and “We Will Rock You.”

Harlow, meanwhile, was decidedly more scaled back with his production, running through four songs on a small igloo set.

Harlow’s performance happened earlier in the day, so after Parton’s went down later on, the internet was full of comparisons between the two showings, pretty much exclusively in favor of Parton. One X (formerly Twitter) user commented, “Beloved American icon Dolly Parton showing the world how to do a halftime show only hours after Jack Harlow borrowed the set from a local middle school’s production of Frozen for his.”

I love me some Dolly, and I have to say she looked and sounded great during her Halftime performance. I hope to look as good at 77, as Dolly did during her performance, and Cher did earlier in the day when she performed DJ Play That Christmas Song at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.

Let's celebrate women of a certain age still kicking and doing what they love, like Dolly, Cher, and even Madonna, who after damn near losing her life a few months ago is defying the odds on her successful Celebration world tour.

As for Jack Harlow, his performance was giving the following tweet below...
