The Perfect Illusion

LAS VEGAS, NV.  When people share high opinions about an ETA the expectations are set high.  Our expectations were set high for the 2012 UETAC winner Ben Portsmouth.  We got a hint of his talent during the Las Vegas Elvis Fest Heart of the King Awards where he sang a few songs and our expectations rose higher.  It was at the Elvis & Friends After Hours Concert where our expectations were met exponentially.

He had the look of Elvis with strong, high cheek bones, slender nose, and charming smile.  His dark, wavy hair became a mussed shag drenched by sweat after Suspicious Minds.  He has the right build to fill the iconic jumpsuits.  Looks aside, Portsmouth has the talent as a singer, songwriter, and musician with the experience to command the stage with an Elvis charisma.  For 45 minutes we were treated to a talented entertainer who made you believe Elvis was on stage.  It was a perfect illusion of the King of Rock and Roll.  The pictures tell the story…

  6. When I first saw him on Letterman, I was stunned it was as if Elvis were back. Then I went to YouTube and watched the videos, I told people to watch he was the closest thing ever to Elvis, which he is and remains. But, a funny thing happened along the way, I got to see him in person and although I think of Elvis it is truly all about Ben now. The actions off stage are all his and they are every bit as charismatic in real life, and drop dead gorgeous. He is the real thing bc he is Ben, just as sexy, just as talented. He does a wonderful job acting the Elvis Part and a even better one being his own drop dead killer hot self. Which btw he is not at all conceited which makes him even more attractive.
