Are you one of Elton's longstanding, dedicated and highly knowledgeable fans in the UK? Or a musician who plays Elton's music onstage, either professionally or on an amateur basis? If so, you could be a contender for a role in a new primetime television show to be screened in the New Year on BBC TV.
Endemol Productions is currently working on a new talent show, to be hosted by Graham Norton, with the working title 'The Ultimate Tribute'. The aim of the show is to find the UK's best solo tribute act, as judged by the superfans - the people who know their idol's performances down to the last note and mannerism.
Elton is one of the selected artists in the series, to be emulated by tribute artists who are then judged by his fans. The contest is open to established tribute acts and professional singers, as well as amateur singers who think they have the potential to be transformed into a top recording artist. And the overall winning act will have the chance of a performance contract in Las Vegas!
So if you perform Elton's music perfectly, or if you are his greatest fan, please contact Catriona Dickey from Endemol. Her details are: (Email) firstname.lastname@example.org, or (telephone) 0208 222 4793. If you are lucky and are chosen for the programme do let us know!
