SINGAPORE - After her raunchy performance at last year's MTV Video Music Awards alongside Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus became synonymous with the act of twerking. But all that bum action has been put on hold after the 21-year-old US singer and twerking queen fell sick earlier this month and was hospitalised following a severe allergic reaction to medication.
She has since been forced to postpone her remaining US, Amsterdam and Antwerp Bangerz concert tour dates.
With Cyrus down, others have taken it upon themselves to take over her twerking duties in their own ways. Here are the latest celebrity twerkers who are giving Cyrus a run for her money.
SOUTH KOREAN DANCE GROUP WAVEYA
Here's an instant way to take the "class" out of classical music.
Step 1: Get five cutesy-looking and scantily-clad South Korean sexpots to shake their bums throughout an entire song.
Step 2: Make a video out of it to draw interest towards the genre.
That is exactly what B-Classic, a Belgian festival promoting classical music, did.
In a promotional video which has gained over two million views on YouTube, the girls of South Korean dance group Waveya turned up the heat as they gyrated to Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No. 9.
At the end of the video, a message pops up on screen to tell viewers that they had just listened to three minutes of classical music.
Let's be honest - the music barely registered, but the images sure stuck.
