Which Relative Race team will find out they’re related to Elvis Presley?
March 18th, 2018 under BYU TV, Elvis Presley. [ Comments: none ]

Last week on Relative Race, sisters Jamie Grace and Morgan Harper Nichols found themselves driving through a hurricane. Tonight at 9p on BYU TV, Troy and Nicole Hitt will find themselves in the middle of wildfires on their route to the new family member. Good thing they learned how to fight fires last week. Will they use that skill this week?

The episode starts off with the four teams getting in their cars to meet their newest family members and it is much smoother driving for all except Team Red driving through the wildfires. When they get to their destination, they pose with the city sign. But for one team, it is too much. They develop a cramp in their leg and that slows them down.

After they send their photos into home base, they are told what their challenge for their day is. They have to finish a puzzle of the face of a family member they are about to meet. Once the picture is complete, they are given a clue to where that person will be. Now they are off to be with their newest family member somewhere in the town.

Once they meet their family member, now it is time to get to know then. One team will find out they are related to Elvis Presley, think you know which team it is? Could it be musical Team Green, who already know they have white people in their family? What about Team Blue, the father and son, who came in to the race only knowing themselves as their family? What about Team Black’s Rebecca Hoyt, her father kept her family secret, is this why? And then there is Troy Hitt, who was adopted, is this a great family find?

At the end of the day, while it is a cool thing to tell people, it is even cooler for these teams to meet some more new family. Oh and not one, but two teams finish under their allotted times, a Relative Race first!

If you are not familiar with Relative Race, it is a mix of Amazing Race (in America) and Who Do You Think You Are. After 10 days, each team comes out of the game with 10 new family members they never knew they had. That is worth more than all the money in the world. Even though, there is a cash prize for the one winner.


Rick Springfield shares a really neat Elvis Presley story!
January 18th, 2018 under Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley, Harry Connick Jr. [ Comments: none ]

Rick Springfield might sing Don’t Talk to Strangers, but thankfully Elvis Presley did not believe that. The never ageing rocker shared a story about meeting The King to Harry Connick Jr yesterday on the crooner’s daytime talk show.

Back in 1971 when Springfield was flying back to Australia, they had a stopover in Hawaii and Elvis boarded the plane. Of course, Elvis the Pelvis sat in first class, and Rick, back then, sat in the cheap seats. Towards the end of their flight, Presley got up, walked to the back of the plane and signed autographs and took pictures with all of the passengers on the plane. Which is totally awesome that someone as famous (was their anyone more popular than him) as The King of Rock’n’Roll would do that, while most of today’s celebrities cannot talk to the commoners.

Back to Springfield, at the time he was managed by the same man who directed Elvis’ 1968 special and the two men bonded over that. What a really swell encounter to share with everyone and anyone. I would start every conversation with that if that happened to me.

When it comes to Elvis, this story makes me love him even more. Some of the other actors I have heard stories about like this are Henry Winkler and Jerry O’Connell, the latter I witness for myself at the Jimmy Kimmel Live green room.


Britney Spears sings Elvis Presley acoustically
December 3rd, 2017 under Britney Spears, Elvis Presley. [ Comments: none ]

It’s Britney Spears party and she’ll sing if she wants to. Therefore, she did. She said that she, “always wanted to do a performance like this… singing in a pretty little black dress, with a simple 360, one take shot! I figured since it was my birthday, why not go for it?! So boom 💥 When the clock struck 12:00, I did it!!! Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes, and for letting me do what I love. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!!!!”

Then she shared that video of herself singing Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love in a LBD as a cameraman went around her in a circle. She got her birthday wish and we got our wish of hearing her real singing voice.

As good as a job she did, I will always be partial to the Corey Hart cover of the song. To hear it, then click here!


Does Billy Ray Cyrus’ bruise look like Elvis Presley?
June 20th, 2017 under Billy Ray Cyrus, Elvis Presley. [ Comments: none ]

Billy Ray Cyrus hurt his hamstring a week and a half ago during the City of Hope ball game and now he is seeing someone famous in his bruise. Maybe because his show, Still the King, will be back on CMT July 11th or because he is a fan of The King, but he thinks it looks like Elvis Presley. Do you see it?

Whether you do or not, say you do because you don’t want to break his achy breaky heart if you do not. I see it. In fact, I think he should get a tattoo of it because I think it would be totally cool to remember it as is.

Have you ever had a bruise that looked something or someone? When I was in college, I burned my thigh with hot water and it looked like Snoopy. To this day I regret not getting it inked.


What if Elvis Lives?
August 16th, 2016 under AXS, Elvis Presley. [ Comments: none ]

39 years ago today, Elvis Presley died, but what if he didn’t? That is what the AXS TV telemovie Elvis Lives is going to look at tonight at 9p.
On August 16, 1977, the world was shocked when Elvis Presley suddenly died. Because it was so sudden and he was very loved, people claimed to have seen him alive for many many years afterwards. Did he really die in that Graceland bathroom?
In this movie, a few weeks before Elvis (Jonathan Nation) “died”, his life was in a downward spiral. He just wanted to be back with Priscilla, his daughter Lisa and live a normal life. That was something he couldn’t do because he was the most famous person in the world. There was a way he could live on in secret and this is the theory on he did it.
That theory, is something you will learn when you watch this intriguing movie about Elvis’ final days as The King and his first few days as his new self.
