The I Kissed a Girl hitmaker took to the stage to give a rendition of the superstar's hit song Here You Come Again.
Katy, who performed with Kasey Musgraves, wore a gold and red outfit – and was eventually joined onstage by Dolly, who then sang Jolene with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus.
But fans have now accused Katy of crimes against humanity – and ordered her to be "flogged".
One wrote on Twitter: "I've seen war. I've seen violence. But I’ve never witnessed anything close to the barbaric murder Katy Perry just committed on @DollyParton".
Another said: "@katyperry should be publically flogged for the heinous crimes she committed against the ICONIC @DollyParton during the #GrammyAwards2019 tonight".
A third wrote: "That outfit alone. Couldn't they have just given that whole thing to sweet @KaceyMusgraves with those lovely brows?"
A fourth wrote: "Katy Perry needs to be banned from any further @DollyParton tributes. #GrammyAwards".
Another fumed: "Dolly Parton has some spunky songs that, in tribute, can be done v. cool. Katy Perry seemed to know this and tried….too hard?"
Another armchair critic chimed in: "Not a good song for Katy Perry to sing. Sorry. That was bad!
"That was an awful performance by Katy Perry. I mean, if you're gonna sing a classic by Dolly Parton. Don't chop it like that, just awful.
"All the other performers did an excellent job, including the Legendary Dolly Parton herself."
Fans even question why Katy was selected for the tribute, which was otherwise filled with country musicians.
One asked: "'Real talk: When people think about putting together tributes and acts together at awards shows, do they just not care about what sounds good or what the artist would want the most? Specifically why are artists like Katy Perry on a tribute to Dolly Parton?"
