Star-Studded Line Up For Elvis' '68 Tribute!

I hope you're ready to get "All Shook Up" during the tribute to rock legend, Elvis Presley! 

On Tuesday they announced that NBC will be hosting the Elvis All-Star Tribute. It's definitely going to be a star-studded event with the amazing line up that they have!

The tribute show is hosted by Blake Shelton and there is going to be covers of some of Elvis' biggest hits from artists such as Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, Post Malone, Kelsea Ballerini, Ed Sheeran, Dierks Bentley, John Legend, Little Big Town, Jennifer Lopez, Darius Rucker, Yolanda Adams, John Fogerty, Josh Groban, Adam Lambert, Shelton, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.

You already know that I'm excited to hear Shawn Mendes cover one of Elvis' biggest hits! I can only imagine that he's going to be covering "Can't Help Falling in Love" since he posted a snippet of it on his Insta story last week! If that's really the song he's covering for the tribute I may or may not cry because we'll be getting a full version of the song not just a 20 second snippet!

 

As a recreation of Elvis' comeback 1968 special, the tribute is going to feature rare interviews and footage with his wife, Priscilla Presley as well as the original director of the '68 special along with Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis' daughter. 

If the artist's performances of Elvis' songs aren't enough for you, there will be an album released along with the tribute, "The Best of the '68 Comeback Special." 

The special is going to air on NBC on February 17th! Get ready!
