If they could see some of the performances today…on stage…on TV…in the movies.

It was back on this day in 1956 that Elvis appeared on the “Milton Berle Show” and performed “Hound Dog”.  Right in the middle of the song, Elvis stops the uptempo song and begins a slow, hip turning, grinding version of the song.  The censors went NUTS and this performance started all the controversy!

Ah, the good old days!  Check out the performance below, you be the judge!
