This fall, Lauren Alaina will help spread holiday cheer — Elvis style. The 16-year-old ‘American Idol’ runner-up will have the honor of flipping the switch on the Christmas lighting display at Graceland, which includes a plethora of signature blue lighting, a true-to-size Nativity scene, as well as the staple Santa Claus flying his sleigh. All of the decorations were originally the work of the King himself, with help of the rest of the Presley family.

The lighting ceremony is free and open to the public, and this year’s event will be especially exciting, as the former Elvis homesite has partnered with CMT and Sirius XM. Together, the group will offer one lucky fan the opportunity to fly to Memphis free of charge, where they will see the sights and stay at Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel. Additionally, the winner will grab a private meet and greet with Lauren Alaina.

After Alaina lights up the former property of the King, which spans 13.8 acres, Santa will be on site to take photos with kids and their families. The official Graceland Christmas lighting ceremony will take place on November 18.
