Junichiro Koizumi

Japan's own Memphis Flash — former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi — got the chance of a lifetime in June 2006 while he was visiting with U.S. President George W. Bush. The duo spent a day at Graceland on a private tour led by the King's ex-wife Priscilla and his daughter Lisa Marie. Koizumi, who rocks a mean pompadour himself, cites Elvis as one of his personal heroes and was beside himself at being in the singer's former home. At one point he sang a few lines from "Love Me Tender" and even busted a few moves.
