    I think I will enjoy this. There isn't too many artists I would turn it off for.

    Adam Lambert will be good at the Elvis thing lol. He has the look and the type of voice that can imitate Elvis well.

    ^ agree. Adam is a perfect Elvis.

    Some tweets came in from the shooting last night. Shawn Mendes did Hound Dog. Nothing about Carrie yet. Or Adam etc. there is another taping tonight though.

    This is so exciting! .. Love Elvis. So cool Carrie is doing this. So far the other singers don't sound too bad.

    I'm really excited about this one! Lots of good singers. I'm all for Shawn Mendes! He stole my heart the other night, the way he sweetly reacted to Carrie!!

    Actually that song was first recorded by BJ Thomas in 1969 & Brenda Lee covered it in 1971.

    ^ point still stands that Elvis did not sing it on the comeback special in 1968smile1.png



    Carrie's song required a choir
    durell_anthonySo grateful for the opportunity to be apart of a choir backing up Yolanda Adams and Carrie Underwood today for an upcoming Elvis Presley special. The show airs on NBC in 2019. Lookout for it! ✌

    I don't believe HGTA was part of the original special. I just googled the original special and there was a gospel medley. Guess we'll see. Too bad we have to wait so long to see it. Although, if its set to air in January, that will be something to look forward to while we wait for either a Grammy show appearance or the ACMs in April.

    According to Wikipedia, this was the gospel medley:
    Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child
    Where Could I Go But To The Lord
    Up Above My Head
    Saved

    That is exactly the song I thought she'd sing! It'd be great for her and it closed the '68 special.
