Rod Blagojevich

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, arrested in December 2008, wants people to treat him nice. His Elvis impersonation at a Chicago block party last summer came six months after the state legislature removed him from office.

Blago — who still faces federal corruption charges — was paid for the performance, which, professional as it was, included the requisite hip-shaking and collar-popping. And of course, the hair. The crowd, predictably, went wild — although not without some confusion. (Check out one woman's reaction less than a minute in.)

The would-be King has denied the charges and is set to stand trial later this year. Before then, you can catch his hip-shakin' on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice.
