Pop star Miley Cyrus has beaten competition from Michael Jackson and Madonna to top a poll of the best dance moves.

The “Wrecking Ball” star claimed the No. 1 spot in the list of the 10 Best Celebrity Dances, compiled by The London Cabaret Club, thanks to her controversial “twerking.”

Cyrus saw off competition from Madonna’s “Vogue” dance and Jackson’s signature Moonwalk, which came in second and third respectively.
