Harry Styles twerking goes viral

Miley Cyrus used to claim to be the queen of twerking, but now the We Can’t Stop singer has some competition. One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles made his fans scream at the Teen Choice Awards yesterday, when he copied Miley’s signature dance move during the show.

At first, the 19-year-old was reluctant when hosts Darren Criss and Lucy Hale asked Harry to do the bottom-shaking move, but after a little egging on by pal Ed Sheeran and his One Direction bandmates, Harry did an impromptu dance. Although it only lasted a few seconds, One Direction fans went wild over Harry’s twerk and within minutes “#HarryDroppedThatThunThunThun” started trending on Twitter, and GIFs and videos went viral.

After the show, Harry took to Twitter to express his twerking regret. “Note to self. Don’t ‘twerk’,” he wrote.

What do you think of Harry’s moves?
