MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) -- Finally welcomed by Graceland after all these years, Elvis Presley impersonators need to keep one basic rule in mind -- respect the King.

Managers of Presley's home in Memphis, Tennessee, plan to anoint their first-ever official Elvis "tribute artist" this week, as they mark the 30th anniversary of his death there. But they don't want tacky, they don't want kitschy and they don't want a ridiculous spoof.

The contest judges will be looking for sincerity and respect -- even if it's accompanied by karate moves, black pompadours and rhinestone jumpsuits.
