Dolly Parton left a lot of viewers hot under the collar with her electric Thanksgiving Day performance on Thursday - but perhaps none more than Tony Romo.

The 77-year-old Country music star looked sensational as she performed several of her biggest hits for the Commanders-Cowboys fans in Dallas at AT&T Stadium.

And she may have been singing '9 to 5', but Parton proved she's an absolute 10 as she took to the stage dressed in a blue and white Cowboys cheerleader outfit.

There's no denying that Parton looked remarkable, with many viewers taking to X (formerly known as Twitter) to compliment the star's youthful appearance. "Wow Dolly Parton. I hope I look half as good and have a fraction of this energy when I’m her age," one viewer wrote.

"Dolly Parton is literally 77 and looks better than I ever will," a second person tweeted.

But perhaps none were more impressed than former Cowboys quarterback and CBS commentator Tony Romo, who couldn't hide his admiration for Parton. Check out his reaction below:

After cutting to Romo in the commentary booth, the commentator looked visibly impressed by Parton's performance attire.

Speaking to co-commentator Jim Nantz, Romo said: "She was wearing the Cowboy's cheerleading outfit - you saw that coming, didn't you? You said, 'I think she's going to go with a little cheerleading outfit tonight.' And I was like, 'Wow. That's pretty good!'"

"I mean, she looks amazing, right?” Romo then gushed. "She’s wonderful. Who doesn’t like Dolly Parton?"

Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for viewers to pick up on Romo's heart-shaped eyes for the 'Jolene' singer, and people quickly teased him about it on social media.

"Romo has a crush," one X user wrote, with a second joking: "Tony wasn’t trying to move on to the next subject."

"I’m a little sad Tony Romo couldn’t spend the entirety of the second half talking about Dolly Parton as he clearly wanted to," another view tweeted.

"Tony Romo can’t focus on the game after seeing Dolly," added another.

And it would seem that most viewers were completely in awe after seeing Parton take to the field in her studded cheerleader outfit - as many viewers clearly couldn't believe the singer was in her 70s.

In fact, yesterday saw a huge spike in Google search terms like "How old is Dolly Parton?" and "Dolly Parton age".

Well, to reiterate once again -- she is 77! I'm more than half my age and I can't stand up out of a chair without making a noise... Dolly, you're putting us all to shame.
