LAS VEGAS – “You’re the One That I Want!” Legends in Concert, Las Vegas’ award-winning live tribute show, along with superstar and Flamingo Las Vegas headliner, Olivia Newton-John, have joined forces to launch the global search for the first Olivia Newton-John tribute artist.
Starting on Wednesday, Sept. 16, aspiring singers and ONJ fans are encouraged to submit a video of themselves singing a classic Newton-John song from any era via the Legends in Concert website. Participants must dress up as the real life GRAMMY award-winning music icon, or one of their favorite characters she made famous such as Sandy from “Grease” or Kira from “Xanadu.”
One “Hopelessly Devoted” fan will be selected by the Aussie icon, winning a chance to perform at one of the Legends in Concert venues throughout the U.S. The lucky winner will be determined based on overall looks, mannerisms and vocal ability to match the star’s likeness. A prestigious judging panel including Olivia will crown the very first Olivia Newton-John tribute artist.
For fans who want to get “Physical” and enter the competition, but don’t sing, can enter a related contest via Instagram. Entrants can upload a photo of themselves dressed as Newton-John, tagging @LegendsInConcertLV and using the hashtag #OliviaIsALegend.
To further celebrate the competition, Legends in Concert and Newton-John’s residencies at Flamingo Las Vegas have discounted ticket prices for VIP, golden circle and main floor price levels. With a proof of purchase of either a “Summer Nights” ticket or a Legends in Concert ticket, guests will receive a 30 percent discount.
