Post Malone Performs “Devil In Disguise” At “Christmas At Graceland” Special
Post Malone performed “Devil In Disguise” at the first-ever Christmas at Graceland TV special.
Christmas at Graceland aired on NBC on Wednesday, November 29.
According to a press release from Graceland, some of music’s biggest stars traveled to Elvis Presley’s iconic home to perform songs from his favorite time of year. It is also “the first live musical televised holiday special of its kind at the estate.”
The special was executive produced by Riley Keough, the eldest daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis’s only child.
“My family and I are elated to open the doors to Graceland in this first-of-its-kind special,”Keough said. “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.”
She also made a special appearance.
Elvis loved Christmas so much, he released an entire album.
Because we know how much The King loves Christmas time, it’s shocking to hear that there has never been a Christmas special filmed at Graceland! His album Elvis’ Christmas Album was first released on October 15, 1957.
It included classics like “White Christmas” and “Silent Night,” as well as new songs “Santa Bring My Baby Back To Me” and “Santa Claus Is Back In Town.”
Due to several reissues of this album, there are plenty of Christmas songs for the artists to choose from! Other than Post Malone, viewers saw performances by Alanis Morissette, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Kane Brown, Lainey Wilson, Lana Del Rey, and The War and Treaty. But don’t let the title of the TV special fool you, while they are celebrating Christmas, it wasn’t only Christmas music that was performed!
Del Rey performed “Unchained Melody” and The War and Treaty performed “If I Can Dream,” which Presley famously closed out his ’68 Comeback Special with.
Standing on a platform over Graceland’s pool, Post Malone sang Presley’s 1963 song “Devil In Disguise.”
This isn’t Post Malone’s first time covering Elvis.
He was included in NBC’s Elvis Tribute in 2019. He performed “Baby What You Want Me To Do” alongside Keith Urban.
After his performance, Post Malone jumped into the pool, guitar and all!
