Lisa Marie Presley Performs on ‘American Idol,’ Says She Could Never Be A Judge
Lisa Marie Presley looked gorgeous in black Thursday night as she made her very first appearance on American Idol to promote her new record – Storm & Grace.
Lisa Marie, the daughter of Rock N’ Roll icon Elvis Presley, performed her single, You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, off the new album — her first since 2005 effort Now What — which dropped this past Tuesday.
Watched by her mother Priscilla Presley, daughter Riley Keogh and manager (and Idol creator) Simon Fuller, Lisa Marie seemed to thoroughly enjoy herself on stage as she sang the slow number, which showcased her deep throaty voice.
Although Presley, 44, looked at home on the AI stage, she admitted to US Magazine that she didn’t have what it takes — read, ability to trash a hopeful competitor’s dreams with no visible remorse — to be a judge on the show.
“I don’t have it in me to want to or to be able to judge other people when they are trying to create or be creative or artistic. I don’t know if I have the heart to do it. I would be more of an encouraging one if I did though. I’ll tell you that.”
Besides Presley, Idol’s season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert (who lost to Kris Allen) also performed on the show, singing his new single Never Close Our Eyes.
