(Webster) Country music legend Dolly Parton has announced that she will be performing her song "Coat of Many Colors," on the Tuesday, Dec. 8 (8-9 p.m.) live telecast of NBC's musical competition series "The Voice."

Also taking the stage will be country star and "Voice" season three champion Cassadee Pope, who will perform her latest single, "I Am Invincible."

Parton will mentor this season's semi-finalists and share with them her infinite knowledge as a music industry trailblazer and icon. The NBC's two-hour movie "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" will also be premiering on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 9 p.m.

The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor musical about Dolly's whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family's life around the time she was 9 years old.

Jennifer Nettles will play Parton's mother, Avie Lee Parton; Ricky Schroder will portray Dolly's father, Lee Parton; Gerald McRaney, one of the most respected actors of his generation, will play Grandpa Jake Owens; and Alyvia Alyn Lind will portray 9-year-old Dolly Parton.
