Country star Wynonna Judd tore down the roof with her roaring performance of Elvis’ “Burning Love” back in 2002. The show was a concert feature for the Disney animated comedy Lilo & Stitch which featured Judd’s cover of The King’s rocking classic.
The backdrops surrounding the stage were set up to look like the landscape of Hawaii (where the animated film takes place) and Judd donned a festive Hawaiian flower in her hair as well as a hibiscus printed sarong wrap around her waist.
The country star’s lively performance moved the crowd up onto their feet with her Elvis-like stage presence. Wynonna’s cover of “Burning Love” is the closing song of Lilo & Stitch and was featured again later on when the movie was transitioned into a series.
While Elvis was not the first one to record “Burning Love,” his version of the song released in 1972 brought it to meteoric fame. The song quickly rose to No.2 upon its release on the Billboard Hot 100 and is widely considered as Elvis’ last major hit.
