15th Anniversary 2012 Seattle Invitationals
On Saturday, January 14, 2012, the Seattle Invitationals return to EMP to celebrate the Seattle Center's Next 50 campaign. It was on these very grounds that the King of rock 'n' roll filmed the head-bopping musical It Happened at the World's Fair in 1962. Hosted by King 5's dashing Jim Dever, The Seattle Invitationals beckon impersonators from near and far to represent just what the King really means to them! There's only one place in Seattle every year where you can see thirty different impersonators in hip-gyrating, fried chicken-eating, swoon-worthy action. You might even catch a glimpse of his wife Priscilla, manager Colonel Tom Parker, and the King's alleged best friend Red West. It's all at the 15th annual 2012 Seattle Invitationals!
Each amateur performer will tackle one of his many personas: innocent and magnetic country boy, hip-swinging rockabilly superstar, G.I. guy, Hollywood playboy, devout gospel singer, or diamond-studded, gold sunglasses sporting Vegas crooner. Each amateur impersonator will get a shot to show what he (or she) is made of, performing a song, in costume, backed by the fabulous Kentucky Rain band!
