Host


The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest program is now entering its eleventh year. It has become one of the fastest growing entertainment opportunities available. Hundreds of Elvis tribute artists compete in preliminaries that have been licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises. The preliminaries are held at festivals, casinos and various other venues around the world. The winners then gather in Memphis to represent their preliminary contest in the Semifinal Round of “The Ultimate.” 

For the preliminary contest venues, this unique entertainment experience combines the excitement of Elvis' music and showmanship with the thrill of a high stakes talent competition. The preliminaries are flexible enough to be held over multiple days and locations or in one day or evening contest. It is a great way to provide a complete entertainment package for your audience and draw for music fans of all ages.
