Elvis Presley, George Burns and James Brown are all alive and kickin' -- for a new ABC reality show.

Auditions took place this week for the show "The Next Best Thing," ABC is searching for the best celebrity impersonator -- and celeb lookalikes (read: wackos) came out of the termite infested woodwork to cause troubled double-takes on the streets of New York.

Doppelgangers for Kenny Chesney and John Travolta showed up as well -- though after taking a look at them, it's clear those two celebs have no need to worry about identity theft.
