Dancing With The Stars Contestants Break Out Their Elvis Moves to "Hound Dog"

Another nod to the king on ABC's hit-show "Dancing With The Stars" shows how Elvis' hip-swinging moves continue to shape music and pop culture. Olympic skater Meryl Davis and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy broke out in their best Elvis moves (video below) while doing the jive to "Hound Dog" in the season 18 semifinals.

According to Yahoo TV, "The '10' paddles got another workout with Davis and Chmerkovskiy's Elvis-infused Viennese waltz. Tonioli dubbed the duo the 'King and Queen of rock 'n roll,' and added, 'Stylistically, it was impeccable.'"

"Hound Dog," written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, was originally recorded by featured 60 Years of Rock 'n' Roll artist "Big Mama Thronton." The best-known version of this song is Elvis' 1956 recording, which sold 10 million copies and was listed as #19 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time."
