If it's good enough for Miley, it's good enough for Andy!

Our own intrepid host of Watch What Happens Live wanted to learn the appropriate way to shake his booty, so on last night's show Andy Cohen got a pair of experts — Ashanti and her mom, Tina Douglas — to teach him the secrets of twerking.

After showing off some classic footage of Ashanti and her mom and sister booty dancing (which hilariously horrified the singer), Cohen demanded a how-to in Teach Me Your Talent! "Get up here and teach me how to freaking twerk," Cohen demands. "Are we really doing it?" Ashanti laughs. Yes. Yes, she was.

Ashanti's directions were simple: stick out your tush and go "bop bop bop bop."

Does Andy have an obsession with the dance move? It's safe to say yes. Earlier this month, he got a lesson in twerking from Ciara. Her trick: "Don't thrust."

Watch Ashanti and her mom attempt to teach Andy Cohen how to twerk and tell us in the comments: is our #WWHL leader ready to be a music video star?
