“My family and I are elated to open the doors to Graceland in this first-of-its-kind special," said Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough was reported by People as saying ahead of the show.
"With intimate musical performances drawing inspiration from my grandfather Elvis’s cherished Christmases in Memphis, viewers will be invited to experience firsthand the magic that is Christmas at Graceland."
The NBC special is called Christmas at Graceland and aired at 10pm ET/PT on NBC and Peacock last night. It has yet to be announced if it will air in the UK.
Each artist on the bill performed a song in tribute to Elvis during the broadcast, which also featured never-seen-before footage of Presley, and a look inside Graceland.
The performing artists also spoke about how they found inspiration in Elvis's love of music and Christmas. You can watch all of the musical performances in full below.
