Katy Perry hit the 2019 Grammys red carpet and per usual, the 34-year-old singer wore a standout look.

She chose a strapless bubblegum pink Balmain Couture gown featuring a sculptural silver-accented bodice and a structured pleated skirt. Djula diamond jewelry added extra sparkle to her ensemble.

Perry is performing at the ceremony as part of the star-studded tribute to Dolly Parton, who was honored Friday by the Recording Academy’s charity, MusiCares, as its annual person of the year.

She’ll be joining Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Little Big Town, who will all sing covers from the catalog of Parton’s hits. Parton herself is also going to take the stage to sing new music from the soundtrack to Netflix’s Dumplin’.

Noticeably absent from the carpet was Perry’s boyfriend, Orlando Bloom. The two first were spotted together in 2016 snuggling at a Golden Globes after party. They split a year later in February 2017, when their reps told PEOPLE they’d be “taking respectful, loving space.” But by April 2018, they were back together again.

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards are broadcasting live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on CBS.
