It's been nearly sixty years since Elvis Presley's performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and he still takes our breath away every time.
In 1956, Elvis appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and gave a breathtaking performance of his two hit songs, "Don't Be Cruel" and "Love Me Tender". The moment Presley walked on stage the ladies went wild, and we can see why!
Due to an automobile accident, the show's usual host, Ed Sullivan, was unable to attend, so Charles Laughton took over for Sullivan. Laughton introduced the legendary artist by saying,
These gold records, four of them, have been awarded to a singing star that you're going to meet in a moment. You know very well who I'm talking about, I'm talking about Elvis Presley. These gold records are tribute to the fact that four of his recordings have each sold more than a million copies. And this by the way, is the first time in record making history that a singer has hit such a mark in such a short time.
Presley then took the stage and thanked Laughton for the honor, saying, "Thank you, Mr Laughton, ladies and gentlemen. Wow. This is probably the greatest honor I've ever had in my life. There's not much I can say except, it really makes you feel good. We want to thank you from the bottom of our heart."
And then the dazzling performance began! The ladies could hardly hold in their excitement!
