The topic of Elvis impersonators or Elvis tribute artists is kind of controversial... Some people are kind of 'die-hard' Elvis fans and feel the impersonators tarnish his memory - yet many people truly enjoy concerts by these artists and feel it's just fine entertainment.

Maybe the bad image is brought on by it being so easy to buy a wig and impersonate Elvis in any ole karaoke show. But professional Elvis impersonators many times go to great efforts and are sincerely trying to pay tribute to Elvis' memory with their performance.

And in a sense, the mere existence of thousands of Elvis tribute artists proves how popular and influential Elvis was in his lifetime. They can help to further maintain the memory of Elvis in people's minds.

We don't want to take sides on this issue... but vote on our poll: Are you one of those who can enjoy a good show of an Elvis impersonator, or do you think Elvis impersonators demerit the real Elvis and tarnish his memory?
