    The rap group Three-Six-Mafia did a fantastic remix of In The Ghetto with EP mixed into it. That was by far more real than Lisa's duet. Let's hope EPE allows them to release that to black urban radio. this song and Beyonce glorifying him tonight could go a long way into fixing the damaged image of EP in the black community.

    We can always hope- but For those who believe no explanation is needed, for those who don't none will suffice. Unfortunately that runs true.

    50 Cent said it best. "When I'm in Vegas it's not all about 50 cebt. But when Elvis was in vegas it WAS all about Elvis". He also said 'there's never been to this day anyone that comes near duplicating what he did".

    Any Network TV Special dedicated to Elvis is fine by me. Kermit the frog could do Jailhouse Rock and it wouldn't bug me a bit. Whether it's as good as Elvis or not, or it's unreleased footage or rehashed Aloha stuff, it's all good. There's gonna be a 12 year old out there watching that show who will want to buy an Elvis Cd tomorrow. (IMO of course).

    Too many no named country singers on this show. It would have been bigger if some of the top artists today and not yesterday were actually on there talking and singing.

    I'm not a huge country fan but I know Toby Keith is huge. He fills stadiums around the country and has had several big hits in a row. Willie Nelson is not current -but he is deserving of respect as a songwriter and singer. Like Tom Jones Willie is a contemporary of Elvis and knew him.

    Too much singing and too many commericals. This would have been a great show if it weren't for a bunch of no names. And why is everyone else perofrming and wasting space but Beyonce isn't? I would rather hear her sing than Brandie whatshername. And I'm sure the rest of the viewers would too.

    Maybe Beyonce didn't want to perform for the show.

    I give it a B+. It would have been an A+ had it not been for so many unnecessary performances. That movie with The Rock looks interesting. I have seen the previews quite a bit but never knew it had an EP influence or theme.

    Celine Dion has an amazing voice, but sheesh..she's actually boring to watch..granted it's a ballad..but I just can't get into her stage prescence (if you call it that)..
    Good show overall though.

    Or maybe "Sasha" didn't perform cuz she couldn't get paid enuff ???

    Her speech about Elvis this and Elvis that was so contrived it was embarrassing.

    I seriously doubt she even owns an Elvis Presley cd.
