Date Revealed for Jennifer Lopez and Carrie Underwood Elvis Presley Tribute

The upcoming Elvis All-Star Tribute special celebrating Elvis Presley officially has an air date, with participating stars taking to their social media channels to share that the NBC special will air on Sunday, Feb. 17.

The show will be hosted by Blake Shelton and will see performances from Yolanda Adams, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Alessia Cara, Mac Davis, John Fogartey, Josh Groban, Adam Lambert, John Legend, Little Big Town, Jennifer Lopez, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Pistol Annies, Darius Rucker, Ed Sheeran, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.

Along with solo performances, there will also be multiple collaborations, including one from Keith Urban and Post Malone, who joined forces for a cross-genre performance in which Malone honored Presley by dressing in a rhinestoned banana-yellow suit complete with sparkling cowboy boots.

Adams and Underwood will also team up for a gospel medley, while Davis, Malone, Little Big Town, Rucker and Shelton will join together for a medley of some of Presley's hits.

The special was filmed over two nights on Oct. 10 and Oct. 11 on the Universal lot in Los Angeles, which is the same lot NBC uses to film The Voice. Performances were filmed in an intimate, in the round setting, with some audience members even sitting on the stage, and rare interviews and footage of Presley will also be included on the broadcast.

The show, which will commemorate Presley's 1968 television special, will also include interviews with the icon's ex-wife Priscilla Presley, as well as the original special's director, Steve Binder. Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, will also make a special appearance.

Presley's '68 Comeback Special aired on Dec. 3, 1968 and was the first time the entertainer had performed on NBC since 1961 and went on to become the network's highest-rated program of the season.

As a complement to the show, RCA/Legacy Recordings will release The Best of the ’68 Comeback Special, a collection of Presley’s performances from the original comeback special along with an updated version of "If I Cn Dream," on Feb. 15.
