Hello From Las Vegas! Weather is in the low 70’s and the rumble in the distance is the roar of the 250,000+ people expected to be in town for the Superbowl this weekend!

There are 29 Dealertainers, including two versions of Elvis, Louie Armstrong, Bette Midler, the Blues Brothers and Aretha Franklin. One Dealertainer performs as Janet Jackson — and also as Prince.
