    Video: UK ETA BEN PORTSMOUTH CLOSES LETTERMAN'S "ELVIS WEEK" with AMERICAN TRILOGY!

    The UK's own Ben Portsmouth closes a remarkable week on Letterman with really the only choice for the big Finale- American Trilogy.

    Dave even gets him to do an encore!

    If you're one of the many ETA Haters which inhabit this board, then why on earth did you click on an ETA Topic?

    Was it just to post that unoriginal comment?

    one of my Elvis friends absolutely adores Ben, she's followed him from the very beginning.....

    i dont care for ETA, but this week Letterman brought a few good ones.. Justin Shandor did a great job on Cant Help Falling in Love, so was Ben Portsmouth, with American Trilogy, .. it did bring chill down my spine as he hit the high notes at the end. I still think nobody can replace Elvis but to see some of few Tribute of him bring some dignity of Elvis music and name, I am sure Elvis would be proud.

    Passable impression i thought,but it reminded me too much of FREDDIE STARRS Elvis take off, it does at least prove just how good Elvis really was !

    JUstin Shandor does have a nice voice of his own. I felt that others like Cody, tried to imitate too much of Elvis' mannerisms and voice inflections that took away too much of their own natural voice. The performance ends up feeling contrived.
