The 2017 European Elvis Championship held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel two days before what would of been Elvis' 82nd birthday (08JAN17). This is the 15th year the European Championship has been held. There are 80 Elvis tribute acts performing over the weekend who are hopeful of being crowned 'The King', including an under 14 section. Judged on vocal ability, costume, dance moves and authenticity, (does the costume fit with the period of the song choice).
