Competitors are all shook up

WINTERSUN fans were all shook up yesterday when the Ultimate Elvis and All Artist Tribute heats took place.

Music lovers gathered at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre to watch the performers battle it out for a place in Saturday night's grand final.

Ultimate Elvis contestant Stephen ‘Kingsley Rock' Fletcher said this was his first time in the competition.

“I thought I might as well give it a go, I've never seen a competition like this before but my favourite Elvis song to perform is Viva Las Vegas,” Mr Fletcher said.

The first prize for the All Artist Tribute competition is a trip to Memphis Tennessee while the winner of the Ultimate Elvis competition will be given a cash prize.

Contestants will be judged on vocals, appearance, stage presence and overall performance.

MC Alan Dale said Saturday's grand final would be an event not to be missed.

“By the sound of it they'll all be top notch performers at the grand final,” Mr Dale said.
