‘SYTYCD’ Judge Adam Shankman Doesn’t Get Twerking Hype


Director and So You Think You Can Dance judge Adam Shankman is lending his talents to a good cause.

The producer is hosting the third annual Celebration of Dance Gala, along with Nigel Lythgoe, which benefits their non-profit Dizzy Feet Foundation in support of dance education across the country.

And with the gala taking place on National Dance Day — and a whole bunch of dancing set to go down at the event — we had to ask what does Adam think about “twerking”?

Adam told On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “I get confused my the twerking thing because when I see a video of people twerking I’m like, ‘That’s just a booty pop, but a lot of them. And so I’m like, ‘So now suddenly they just assigned it a new name.’ It’s still booty popping.”
