2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis TV Special simply called "Elvis" that was broadcast on NBC in 1968. The television show commonly know as the Comeback Special has Elvis donning iconic black leather and performing some of his most unforgettable hits, Elvis reclaimed his glory and put himself back at the top of the charts.

NBC will celebrate the 50th anniversary of that epic evening, an all-star group of music's superstars will pay tribute in Nashville, Tennessee, recreating the spectacle - even the staging - of that legendary night of song. In addition to the musical performances, we'll see rare Elvis footage, outtakes and interviews from those involved in the '68 comeback special, including Director Steve Binder. Whether you're a lifelong fan or just getting to know Elvis, this is an event not to be missed.

Let's hope they don't recreate Charlie Hodge's irritating laughter.

I can already see a bunch of whitewashed nashville-country stars (the females in sexy dresses) singing "polished to death" versions of elvis songs. This thing is going to be unbearable. .... if not, it would be the biggest suprise ever, I'm sure this is going to suck.

It's unlikely that I will bother with this.

Nonsense. Show ELVIS and not some other singers/jokers trying to copy him! It's ELVIS that made history by his singing, his style, his appearance etc. There are so many efforts during the last years to sort of 'upgrading' ELVIS to this time. Leave it! Show the man as he was.
