The video, recorded last week at Montreal radio station CKOI, had generated more than seven million views by early Wednesday.

Viewers who saw Thibault perform with just an acoustic guitar include talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who has invited Thibault to appear on her program on Monday.

A message on the Ellen website says the “teenage viral sensation” will do his best version of the King during the program.

Several other videos of Thibault singing Elvis tunes are on YouTube, including “Don’t Be Cruel,” “My Way” and “Blue Suede Shoes.”
