17. BANDZ A MAKE MILEY CYRUS DANCE
WHEN: June 9, 2013
This moment is pretty much the Big Bang moment for twerking, at least as it relates to mainstream media coverage of the phenomenon. It all started harmlessly enough, as none other than Miss Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus, decided to attend a Juicy J concert. Perhaps a bit tipsy, or perhaps just driven to make that booty clap by Juicy J’s infectious twerking anthem “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” Milers stopped, dropped and popped that booty on stage, enlisting an innocent Marshall Stack to help her balance. Some enterprising person backstage just happened to be shooting video of the incident and, well, the rest is viral video history.
