As a first for Graceland, Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough opened up the mansion for an NBC special filmed inside and around the grounds.

On the opportunity, Lisa Marie’s daughter said: “My family and I are elated to open the doors to Graceland in this first-of-its-kind special.

“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 hour-long TV special broadcast in the US saw some big music stars perform in honour of the King in a festive spectacle.

UK fans may have missed out on Christmas at Graceland, but now the network has released the individual performances on YouTube for fans to enjoy.

Highlights included Post Malone performing (You’re The) Devil In Disguise outside by Graceland’s swimming pool.

Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey covered Unchained Melody in the Jungle Room, where Elvis himself recorded a couple of studio albums towards the end of his life.

Also in the festive spirit, John Lennon performed a cover of John Lennon’s Happy Christmas (War Is Over).

Additional performances included: Blue Christmas by Kane Brown, Santa Claus Is Back In Town by Lainey Wilson, Last Christmas by Alanis Morrissette, If I Can Dream by The War and Treaty and Can’t Help Falling in Love by Kacey Musgraves.
