Dwayne Johnson performs Elvis song on Rock the Troops special

‘Everybody in the whole cell block was dancin’ to the Jailhouse Rock’

Posted on

The upcoming Spike TV special Rock the Troops is exactly what it sounds like: A musical concert and comedy extravaganza helmed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in honor of America’s armed forces.

Johnson really went all-out, particularly for the sequence where he dresses as Elvis Presley and sings “Jailhouse Rock” surrounded by fireworks and dancers. An amazing preview of that sequence is now available in the clip below. 

Filmed at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii, Rock the Troops also features appearances from the likes of Kevin Hart, Matthew McConaughey, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, Rob Riggle, Scott Eastwood, and Terry Crews, plus musical performances by Nick Jonas, Flo Rida, Tenacious D, Katharine McPhee, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others. 

Watch the clip below. Rock the Troops premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.
