25 Glorious Things That Happened At The First U.K. Twerking Championships
Bounce, bounce, bounce. Bounce, bounce, bounce.
Everyone started using the term after a little incident you may have heard about.
Now it seems like everyone and their cat's doing it. It's just shaking your ass, right?
WRONG. It's actually a lot harder than it looks.
On 21 November, the UK held its first ever Twerking Championships, and just look how big the queue to get in was.
This was a seriously well organised event.
Obviously, you could buy clobber.
So much clobber.
This is Jeremy from Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen's Club. He's basically Simon Cowell. The other judges were a lady who worked with Lily Allen and a lady who worked with RiRi.

They had a pretty awesome line in syncro moves.
But then their oppo started pulling out all kinds of crazy upside down twerks.
Yeah, this was what the crowd came for.
A lot of the time quality of twerk is contingent on the quality of leggings.
Meanwhile, here's an audience member's views on Miley Cyrus.
No one had a good word to say for her: except that she'd made real twerking popular.
Back in the main hall and here's a JUMBO TWEET SCREEN. Just use #uktwerkchamps and you're broadcasting to hundreds!
Back to the contest, and this pair probably had the maddest skills on display.
Personal choice for best move of the night: the wheelbarrow twerk.
Lisa from North Tottenham was probably the crowd favourite due to her Chun Li impression.
On the way out, this guy had a message for womankind.
He's right: it's a life skill. Everyone should twerk. Responsibly.
Enjoy yourselves, everyone.
