    i’m sorry, but that was the dumbest thing i’ve seen since nat king & natalie cole did a “duet” like 20 years ago. i got up & took a leak when i saw elvis & celine come out.

  • anon

    that was just too creepy to watch.

  • hr

    yeah i thought it was creepy/weird too.

  • Lori

    That was fantastic!

  • Danielle

    I thought that was the coolest, sweetest, best thing ever!! I have tears in my eyes just thinking off the moments like this we lost when he died. Bravo!!!!

  • bdj

    That was a nice duet. A little creepy. If they hug at the end, I was going to get up and make sure all my doors were still locked. Modern technology is amazing and the King lives on.

  • celeb watcher

    Bravo! Loved it!

  • Ellen

    I think it was well put together, the voices also sounded great and I have never been an Elvis nor a Celine fan but can you imagine the time it took to do this? No need to put the performance down just hope that maybe one day someone would want to raise up a dead hater-it might just be you!

  • panama red

    neither. it’s alarming that we accept this blurring of reality. the line is being pushed much too far.

  • Burpie

    That is so cool and creepy and fascinating and plain out WEIRD all at the same time. He looks so real.

  • Hubbell

    Weird. Creepy. Frightening.

  • Susan

    Completely COOL! A little bit weird. But definitely worth the price of admission!

    Many may be too young to feel that tingling feeling mixed with sadness and reminiscence of days gone past……but, like Danielle…it brought tears to my eyes, and wishing for the days back when. Although there were many challenges….there were still the unknown that needed to be discovered. The turning of the era and lifestyles. You were still able to find those with that fighting heart, and pride in humanity. Nowadays…..it is sad how our generation have taken advantage of the bountiful blessings, and disregarding what it means to earn your pay. No work ethics, it is mostly……hand outs…..but, our society made it this way……so sad. I miss those days….it was a beautiful duet…..

  • OK

    The technology is mindboggling. Two dead people singing. Genius.

  • Ben

    That was so creepy! I don’t know how they did it, if it was a hologram or if it was computer-generated.

  • StoppingIn

    What was frightening & weird was the fruit cake host who introduced them name Ryan Sissycrest.

  • Frenchy

    What’s even creepier was Sanjaya siniging on stage as well when he wasn’t really there! They brought him back like they did Elvis. The performance of Celvis was taped before Sanjaya was eliminated so they had to do some editing. But they forgot to edit him out. Next thing you see he’s in the audience! LMBFAO!!!!!!!!!!

    Here are the screencaps of this “magical” night LOL!!!!

    so glad i was dvring it so i could skip it. thought it might be ok (not really) but after a few pain filled seconds (30 or so) i had to switch the channel. luckily the dvr allows me to not have to suffer through that pain.

    HORRIBLE

  • Willemijn

    Very cool. Love that woman, and the duet was amazing.

    “If I Can Dream”…perfect song for this dream of a duet! Loved it!

  • black

    —————Elvis you rock—————————————————————-

  • Kellie

    Why is everyone finding this creepy?
    It’s amazing!!
    What an honor for Celine!
    That was just beautiful, truly.

  • FAY

    loved it from an big Elvis fan

  • Linda

    I thought that was the best thing ever! It was awesome to see this.I still get goose bumps when I hear Elvis. I too, have tears in my eyes just thinking of the moments like this we lost when he died. Bravo!!!!

    ELVIS IS STILL THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL!!!

  • Joanna

    I thought it amazing! I would have loved to listen to Elvis only, but nonetheless it was fantastic…LOVED IT!!

  • Harmonie

    I agree with Linda….ELVIS FOREVER BABY!!!! I was teary eyed and covered in goosebumps while listening to his magnificent voice. The best performance by far!

  • K.

    This was technological perfection. Can those who are under 25 years of age understand how much effort was made by passionate people who dreamt that this day would come ! It was spotless and daring and magnificent ! This was the birth of your future! Remember you saw it, and but maybe you didn’t see it for its significance.

  • Dumdums

    Wonderful .. Celine has the golden pipes Elvis daughter does not possess. I think Elvis would have been honored to duet with her too.

  • http://justjared #1 Elvis Fan

    It was amazing to see Elvis one more time on stage singing with those lights shinning on him as they should have. What a treat. Some of you may not know but August will be 30 years since we lost Elvis and to see him last night was like a dream for many of us. Celine was great and I am sure if Elvis was still here he might have just done a duet with her. I had tears and goosebumps and I was sad knowing this wasn’t for real. That is what need to know, it was entertainment not real. But, Elvis will always be real in my heart and in so many others. Thank you American Idol for giving us a little of what we lost 30 years ago. I could have watched that all night..

    BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! I saw Elvis sing that when it premiered back in the day on good ol TV and I was Blown away when I saw it. Not creepy but mind boggleing actually. The coolest thing I have ever seen, technology is truly amazing.

  • Yo

    Elvis is what entertainment should be. We don’t have entertainment today.

  • Robin

    I thought it was cool I have already purchased the video off of itunes.

  • HottieTottie

    BEST thing on tv in the last 10 years!! Kudos!! Would love to see more duets like this!!

  • rara3000

    That was creepy yet im intrigued. I dont know what to think of that. The whole singing with a dead Elvis animation is totally freaking me out. And that was on prime time TV. chills.

  • Nancy

    WOW is all I can say, what the advancement of technology has done, I was an Elvis fan from the first time I saw him in 1956 in downtown Memphis and I was just a kid!!! And when we had to go to a neighbors to watch him on the Ed Sullivan Show, because we didn’t have a TV, and the one we watched wasn’t in color!! What advantages you young people have now…….Please use it to the fullest, you have the whole world ahead of you. Appreciate the OLD as well as the NEW!!

  • Melanie

    Get rid of Celine Dion and its great! Just have Elvis up there!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Assem

    heyy ppl, at the very begining of that vid the host said”in Egypt”well, does anyone knows why he mentioned egypt?!?!?1well iam egyptian, so iam just curious as well as i think that duet was pretty silly..besides me lovin Celine Dion alot…

  • SF

    Excellent stuff and I truly mean that. I was wondering though was it a hologram or was it like taken from one of his concerts, technically not really a computer generated hologram?

  • lyc

    creepy. celine was looking at him like he was actually there.

  • Terry

    Brilliant! Pertfect song for the show…it gave me goosbumps

  • http://google dpal

    oh my gosh. I loved it. Yes it was creepy. But I love Elvis. I only really started loving his songs probably 15 yrs ago. So he had been dead for long time. But I too had goosebumps. Celine (not my fav) was GREAT! She sang different I guess that is why I really liked her with this song. Glad if DVR it…….I can go back and rewatch it later. Thanks AI

  • Sue Reich

    I REALLY loved it, I am listening to it again right now. It made me cry because it was so beautiful. I sent it to my sister Marilyn. Thank you for putting “share” on this page so I could forward it on. Thanks, thanks, thanks- – - – - -Sue KCK

    I felt like I was watching Star Trek at first, but technology is awesome. I can’t imagine what it must have felt like for Celine Dion to be standing next to and singing with one of the greatest performers ever. I wish I would have had the opportunity to see Elvis live.

  • http://YAHOO ELVIS

    AWSOME, I NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD!

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERY MUCH

  • Bryce

    30 years later after his death and he still has it!!!!! Iam talking about Elvis the greatest singer that ever lived. Celine is very good I went out to see her in Las Vegas in 2003 very good and both singing together what genius thought this up supurb!!!! Technology is great I hope to see more of this, they both make me cry when I hear them.

  • Cindy

    Not at all creepy – how weird to even think it was – I don’t get that.
    Really cool! Awesome technology!
    The BEST performance in an otherwise “lackluster” show.

  • Toots Mettura

    This was FANTASTIC! Elvis is as relevent and exciting today as he was 30 yrs ago!
    Elvis lives Forever!

  • Bev

    I think that people don’t truly realize what reallllll!!!!! music and talent is all about. We have too many young kids with too much time on their hands and no expierence of what real music is. I thought the Celine, Elvis performance was an awesome thing. You don’t realize how truly amazing it would have been to be on stage with some of the greats of the past.
    Our music has gone to the dogs literally, it has no heart to it.

  • Puddles

    This was one of the most fabulous and amazing events in music history…who else could ever have pulled off a duet this well with Elvis other than Celine? I found it to be extravagent…very well thought out AND put together. What an honor for Celine to *sing* with the “King”!!! For those of you who think it’s creepy…lighten up!!!

  • http://Charter-JustJared Angie Beasley

    I have been a Huge fan of both singers but more for Elvis–always have been. I was tremendously excited but saddened at the same time to know that he is no longer with us. This will be the closest I’ll ever get to see him on stage. I believe he would have been honored because that the kind of person he was–he was always giving to a good cause like the via Hawaii Satellite–& now he’s still making history. He was an excellent performer, a good son, a good father, loyal to his country & faith in God & he is still so badly missed. He brought something to the world nobody else with all the technology can do–he was naturally gifted. Celine was classy as always. It was the best thing I’ve seen in a long time & the younger generation just don’t realize what the world lost when we lost him.
