The latest season of America's Got Talent saw Elvis Presley reborn back to the stage.

Elvis tribute singer, Emilio Santoro, donned an unbuttoned black shirt and golden suit jacket decked out in rhinestones fit for the King of Rock n’ Roll.
Metaphysic took to Instagram to showcase their gratitude. “What an absolute honor to have brought back The King, Elvis Presley, to sing once again,” the duo wrote via Instagram.
