Rounding out the four finalists were: Sebastian Anzaldo as Frank Sinatra (Omaha, Nebraska), Donny Edwards as "Blue Suede Elvis" (Las Vegas, Nevada), John Morgan as George W. Bush (Orlando, Florida) and Suzanne La Rusch as Lucille Ball (Los Angeles, California).

    This guy ‘sucked!’ Fake hair, sideburns and really could not sing…the judge’s comment three queens was appropriate. Elvis would have vomited seeing this…enough with fake….how about real?!?!
