In Case You Missed It: Elvis impersonator is good, but how good?


A French-Canadian teenager has become a viral sensation for his uncanny Elvis impersonation. But how good is he?

David Thibault, 16, sang “Blue Christmas” while strumming his guitar on a Quebec radio show and quickly gained international fame. Thibault sounds so much like Elvis, who recorded the song in 1957 for a Christmas album, some were calling the video a fake.

He’s not. Thibault’s just really talented and won the People’s Choice Award at the 2013 “In the Shoes of Elvis” competition in Montreal. But for a place famous for Elvis impersonators, it got us thinking. Could he cut it in Las Vegas?
