The Elvis All-Star Tribute will air February 17th on NBC. The show was taped in October, and features stars of various musical genres, including pop artists like Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Pistol Annies, Darius Rucker, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, Shawn Mendes, Josh Groban, Jennifer Lopez, Adam Lambert, and Post Malone. Elvis’ widow Priscilla Presley will appear on the special, as will his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.
The special, hosted by Shelton, will create the look and feel of The King’s legendary ‘68 Comeback Special, where he performed both stand-up, rocking numbers and a more intimate, stripped-down set wearing black leather.
Along with the special, an album called The Best of the ‘68 Comeback Special will be released on February 15th. It’ll include 15 Presley performances from the ‘68 broadcast, three studio recordings of songs that appear in the special, and a new version of “If I Can Dream,” feature Elvis’ original vocals plus those of Underwood, Mendes, Rucker, Shelton and Malone.
