Honey Boo Boo channeled the king of rock ‘n’ roll at the Rock Star Diva pageant. But could her performance make her the queen of the competition?

Honey Boo Boo brought her A-game and rocked the house at the Rock Star Diva pageant, on the Aug. 29 episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Did her hip shaking and swinging performance of Elvis Presley impress the judges enough to crown her the Rock Star Glam Supreme? We’ll find out… after the break.

We picked up with Honey Boo Boo and the family rushing to the hospital after big sister Anna was experiencing early pregnancy contractions. Mamma June Shannon didn’t want Anna’s little girl arriving five weeks early, so they headed to the emergency room to stop her from going into labor.

A few hours later, Anna was sent home and put on strict bed rest. No new baby Kaitlyn tonight.

Honey Boo Boo was sad to not be bringing home baby, but her disappointment didn’t last long.

“[The baby’s] going to smell like poop. When she poops.” Ah, yes — wise words.

The next day was final weigh-in for Mamma, Jessica (aka Chubbs) and Lauryn (aka Pumpkin). Mamma lost 1.6 pounds, Chubbs lost three pounds and Pumpkin GAINED six pounds. But for all their “efforts” to eat right that week, Mama took the girls and Honey Boo Boo on their first trip to the water park.

That’s where the fun began.

After a peaceful float down the lazy river, Mamma needed the help of both her middle daughters to pull the raft up over her body. Then she took a thrilling ride down the big yellow water slide — and survived!

Jessica thought Mamma was now ready for the big slide, but Mamma wasn’t having any of that. I wouldn’t either — those slides only lead to massive wedgies or lost bikini-bottoms.

To please her daughters instead, Mamma finally revealed her messed up foot. Years ago, a forklift rolled over it and left her big toe all mangled. Trust me, not a pretty site, and the girls had serious buyer’s remorse after seeing it. They asked for it!

Gearing up for pageant season, Honey Boo Boo performed a dry run with her new coach and new dress at the Rock Star Diva Pageant. The goal for the event — to win the Glam Supreme prize!

First, Honey Boo Boo had to spruce up with a spray tan or “Spray tan — poop in a can.” Ok, sure.

New to the Honey Boo Boo phenomenon, I was starting to believe Sugar Bear served no purpose but to roll his eyes at the ridiculous things Honey Boo Boo said. But just before she bounded onto the stage, Sugar Bear gave her a sweet, little pep talk.

“I like going to the pageants. I love watching her perform,” Sugar Bear told the cameras. Aww, how cute!

Honey Boo Boo won over the judges with her Elvis impersonation, even with Mamma being distractive during her performance. She was crowned queen in the 4-6 age bracket.

Content with her title of queen, Honey Boo Boo really wanted to win the crown jewel of the pageant — the Rock Star Glam Supreme.

But alas, today was not Honey Boo Boo’s day to win the elusive supreme title.

“Kinda sad because I didn’t get the big trophy,” Honey Boo Boo lamented.

You’ll get ’em next time, kiddo!

What did YOU think Hollywoodlifers? Were you sad to see Honey Boo Boo not win the Glam Supreme prize? And were you dying of laughter watching Mama go down that water slide?
