Rong Rive the King! Japan Celebrates "Elvis"

Well, it's that time again.

"What time is that?" you say? Well, it was anniversary of the Elvis Pulesley's, er,  mean, Presley's  birthday (Jan 10). So for you folks in the USA, it's going on right now.



In Japan, we have a contest to crown the new King Elvis for 2011.

As Sky News reports:

According to the Elvis Presley Society of Japan, there are at least three important criteria impersonators must live up to to be named the next 'King of Rock' -- voice, make-up and costume, and the ability to make women scream with delight. The 'Tribute to Elvis 2011' held in Tokyo is a contest to choose Japan's new king, who would also be given a chance to test his skills against other Elvises from around the world. 


Here's Aaron Narikyo. The former Elvis champion.
