Elvis Week Recap Day 3 - Good Rockin' Tonight

The third day of Elvis Week was full of dancing and toe-tapping!

Four Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist winners, Shawn Klush, Ben Thompson, Dwight Icenhower and Taylor Rodriguez, took the stage for the Ultimate Return concert. Taylor kicked off the show with a selection of the king's best Vegas performances, and he was followed up by Ben Thompson, who danced his way across the stage, into the audience and back again during his electrifying set.

Dwight Icenhower brought the sparkle with his flashy set full of Elvis hits and fan-favorite songs. Shawn Klush wrapped up the night with a powerful performance that included some of the king's biggest hits, like "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Suspicious Minds" and "American Trilogy." 

The energy kept flowing at the after-party at the Graceland Exhibition Center. Dean Z, Ben Thompson, Taylor Rodriguez and Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist finalists Radney Pennington and Cote Deonath took to the stage to sing a mix of Elvis songs and classic rock hits, with fans dancing and singing along.

Earlier in the day, Dean Z hosted another Elvis Unplugged show at The Guest House at Graceland, and this set focused on Elvis' early hits. Ben Thompson and Dwight Icenhower joined him for this show, and the guys all traded songs and stories. Dwight said all of the tribute artists in the world still can't live up to the King of Rock 'n' Roll. "That's why there will never be another Elvis, ever," he said. "There'll never be another Elvis, folks. Let's hear it for the greatest entertainer that ever lived - and ever will live."

Tonight, Dean Z takes the stage in his "Elvis: The Rocker" show - learn more about it on Jon Waterhouse's Elvis Week Blog. Check out today's blog, too, which focuses on Elvis' influence on fans' fashions.
