Shame about the quality of this youtube video but my God. I so enjoyed it. If this is the kind of vision and promotion Elvis is going to receive via the Robert Sillerman CKX deal then we fans should be very excited. I know I am. Well done! Anyone know when this will be broadcast in the UK?
Technically very clever, and no doubt it may instill Elvis in some of the younger generation.
However, it is an example of the corporatisation and Disney-fication of Elvis Presley. Ultimately tacky, IMO.

I know the link to the song has been pasted, but I think this link has a much better sound.
I loved it too. Celine did a great job and the image of Elvis was fantastic!
This one looks and sounds great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpH7BlYsdGI
I didn't get to see it last night. Did Simon rip Elvis' performance up?
Very impressive production. Must have been a bummer to have been there though and seen the other dude.
...you won't forget me when I go.
I've been watching the videos clips all morning, if I had an mp3 I would pay to download the clip! I especially love the way they show Elvis' profile beside Celine at 2:21 -where he sings "out there in the dark..." My first reaction to Elvis was - Oh he should have been wearing his black leather singing this song, but then the more I thought about it the right decision was made. This is showing the younger audience just what an elegant (& gorgeous) man he was - not the caricature in the Vegas outfits. It'll be interesting to see if the 68 DVD has an increase in sales.
Did anyone see the reaction to the performance on GoodMorning America? Diane Sawyers looked like she's a fan from way back!
marvelous, outstanding, awesome .
celion did a great job, but the king wiped the floor with her
LETS BE FRIENDS!
Celine was great and i am a big fan of her music but elvis is in another class on off his own. his voice is awesome.
Heres a lovely clip of celine singing because you loved me .

I didn't get to watch American Idol last night but I knew that my friends on this site would have it. You are all so AWESOME!!!! You know all the news before it becomes news!
America has contributed four things to the world that are really unique: Baseball, Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and Elvis Presley. And only one of them is human - - Jerry Hopkins - "Elvis" - A Biography.
Here is Ryan Pelton's webpage. He is a ELvis Tribute Artist he also has done some TV stuff too. He really truely loves elvis. And no hasn't had any pastic sugery.
Love to all,
Absoluely FANTASTIC. Both Elvis and Celine were great. I sincerely hope that this is just the start of the new technology to bring Elvis back to the masses.
I suspect this technology will be used to great effect with the forthcoming Cirque Du Soleil productions. With this performance, Bob Sillerman has done more for the Elvis Legacy in 2 minutes than EPE or Sony BMG have done in the last 5 years.
Here is couple pictures of Ryan he's great guy you should go see him perform.
Love to all,
