Should You Hire A Celebrity Look-Alike For A Graduate Party?

It’s time to host a graduation party and celebrate the people who went through so much hassle to get the tassel. You’ve listed the food menu to serve, decorations, guest list, gifts, and more. But what about entertainment? 

You can’t go through an epic graduation bash without planning the entertainment meticulously. Hiring a celebrity look-alike or impersonator tribute artist can create the best experience for the graduate as well as friends and family. 

But you have to accompany that with the right theme, photo-ops, and entertainment acts from the look-alike to maximize the fun and have your guests talking about the event for a long time.

Why Get A Celebrity Look-Alike or Impersonators For A Graduate Party?

Talented celebrity look-alikes and impersonators can create an immersive environment for your guests. Let’s look at why you should consider setting a theme around celebrity impersonators. 

  1. The Graduate is A Big Fan of a Celebrity

Obviously, the chief guest of the graduation party you’re planning is the graduate themself. If they want to see a celebrity really bad, it could be an amazing surprise to have their look-alikes at the party.

  1. Tribute Artists can be a Part of a Larger Theme

Having an 80s Hollywood theme or music-themed party with impersonators and tribute bands along with appropriate decoration and throwback pieces, can create a great atmosphere. 

Your guests will have the night of their lives and incredible pictures and memories to share about the party on social media. 

  1. Tribute Artists and Impersonators are Incredibly Talented

These people put a lot of hours into talking, walking, and obviously looking like the person they’re impersonating. Tribute artists have musical and dancing talent and know how to put on a show. 

If you hire the right person, you can surely scream at the top of your lungs with the tribute bands.


How to Choose the Right Celebrity Impersonators or Tribute Artists

You can’t just hire any celebrity impersonator or tribute artist. There needs to be some thought put into it and we’ll tell you exactly what you need to consider.

  1. The Graduate's Special Preference

If your graduate is someone really into Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour or any other contemporary artist, you can centre a theme around that. 

After all the hard work the graduate does deserve a special treat. One they’ll remember for a lifetime.

  1. Consider The Party Theme You Want

Your overall party theme must be considered before you make the decision to choose a celebrity lookalike. 

If you want a vintage party with an ode to the past, think of artists that stood the test of time like ABBA, Beatles, Queens, etc.

Famous actresses with signature looks are also a possible choice. Marlyn Monroe or Barbara Streisand can be big crowd pleasers with their iconic fashion and famous way of talking. 

  1. Inspiration From Current Trends

You can also choose an artist who is on hype right now. Barbie has been a big thing this year culturally. 

Having a Margot Robbie look-alike styled in Barbie costumes can really be an amazing idea. 

Maybe you could have a Ken mannequin as a photo op as well to make the theme come more alive.

  1. Artists With Universal Appeal are the Best

As hard as it is to find a single artist or band who fits the taste of just about everyone, there are timeless artists like Adele, Whitney Houston, Bob Marley, and Amy Winehouse who put a smile on everyone’s face and a spring in their steps.

You can take a look at these timeless Tribute Acts that are huge crowd-pleasers at all kinds of parties. You can’t go wrong with them.

You don’t have to worry about generational differences in terms of whether everyone will find the entertainment tasteful.

Having a photo booth will allow friends, couples, and family members to capture memories in a way that’s nostalgic to them.

Having gifts and prizes for the most entertaining performers of the night can make the karaoke session even more fun.

This can be a personal way to keep the audience engaged for a short while.

  1. Get A DJ or Live Music

Getting a DJ can be less hassle and still be enjoyable for everyone. If you can get everyone on the dance floor then the party will surely be a success. Getting live music is also an option with a customised song list that the guests will love.
