Dolly Parton has appeared on US television show Dancing With The Stars wearing a corset to perform some old and new songs.

As a musical guest on the reality show, Dolly performed laced into a waist-minimizing corset and one of her trademark wigs.

She first sang her classic hit 'Nine to Five' and later revealed her newest number, a song called 'Better Get To Livin''.

The star has been in the press of late for refusing to be a guest judge on American Idol, despite the fact that the programme will play tribute to her music with a special episode. "I won't be a judge. I couldn't do that. I can't tell people they aren't doing a good job even if they ask me. To tell someone if they're good or bad, or if they suck isn't me," she said.

The nice girl of country could be appearing on the UK's screens in a corset soon, as she releases her new single, which will appear on her forthcoming February 2008 album, Backwoods Barbie.
