The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest

Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest

In 2007, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. announced an inaugural Elvis tribute artist contest event that was a search for the “best representation of the legacy of Elvis Presley.” Twenty-four of the best ETAs from around the world, who had each won a preliminary round of the competition, traveled to Memphis during Elvis Week 2007 to compete in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. In response to the excitement generated by the first contest, Elvis Presley Enterprises has held the contest each year since, with winners of preliminary contests traveling to Memphis each August to compete for the title.
