PRLog (Press Release) - Aug. 11, 2011 - Memphis, TN - The 2011 King Of The World: Elvis Tribute Artist World Championships are in full swing in Memphis, TN.  Over 60 competitors from the U.S. and all over the world will compete for nearly $15,000 in cash & prizes, including the prized "KingCup" the only known sing-able world championship trophy.

August 9-16 is Elvis Week in Memphis, where an estimated 100,000 fans converge on Elvis' adopted hometown to pay homage to The King.  Visitors typically take in Graceland, collector's conventions, and fan club meetings, along with satisfying their desire to see the King live.  Not only are there opportunities to see Elvis on video backed up by his original musicians playing live, but the Elvis Tribute Artist World Championships provide the chance to see the best Elvii in the world, live on stage.

Far from being an calling for wingnuts and delusional love children of Elvis, most Elvis impersonators have switched to using the term Elvis Tribute Artist to designate professional peformer status.  And, Many Elvis Tribute Artists have taken to doing The King full time.  So much so, that their may be a n Elvis overpopulation threat.

There are now at least 85,000 Elvis Impersonators around the world, compared to only 170 in 1977 when Elvis died. At this rate of growth, experts predict that by 2040, Elvis Impersonators will make up a third of the world population!
