As Miley Cyrus continues to be criticized for her onstage antics, Priscilla Presley defends the "Bangerz" singer's performances.

Priscilla, 68, witnessed first hand the backlash her husband, the late Elvis Presley, endured for moving his hips while singing, which was thought of as vulgar in the '50s. That being said, Miley's performances don't seem to bother her.

"I think she's very talented," Priscilla told ET's Brooke Anderson of the 21-year-old musician. "I really can't criticize, because Elvis went through the same thing."

Priscilla invited ET to see the new 60 Years of Rock 'n' Roll exhibit at Graceland, which features countless mementos of The King's legacy.

"I have so many memories. I can walk in this house and feel the energy," said Priscilla. "I walk in that door and it's like, 'Oh my gosh!' His spirit is definitely here."

Look for Priscilla's new book, "Shades of Elvis," out March 7.
