I watched part of her "rap" performance and had to change the channel. I hope this wasn't Dolly's idea to do this and that she was somehow talked into it against better judgement. Dolly has always had class and style, this fell far short of both. I find the QL show a waste of airtime and just another fill in slot for the liberal media. What is she famous for? It certainly isn't for any talent other than a big mouth. Sorry Dolly, always loved you, but not on ths one.
