2018 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Ben Thompson

 



Representing the Hard Rock Cafe Last Chance Contest


Ben has been an Elvis fan since he was a child. He became an Elvis tribute artist at the age of 15 and has performed in many venues around the world. He is an international multi-award-winning Elvis tribute artist and he takes pride in his tribute. This will be his sixth Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, and he feels it is a great privilege to be a part of the contest. 


Congratulations to second place winner Diogo Light and third place winner Cote Deonath, and top five finalists Al Joslin and Nick Perkins.


Contestants, like Ben Thompson, must win a preliminary round at an officially licensed location to be eligible to participate in the Semifinal Round held during Elvis Week in Memphis. Since 2007, winners have come from the states of Alabama, Illinois, Arkansas, Louisiana (2), Michigan, Missouri and three from the United Kingdom (England).
