We know them for their lyrical talent (or lack of) but the real question is, can they bust a move? The best singers aren't always the best performers, especially on the dance floor. So this is your chance to rank who music's best movers and groovers are. In all genres in music's history, the most rhythmic dancer in music will be decided based on how everyone votes.

Michael Jackson was as famous for his dancing moves as he was for his record-breaking hits. And icon Prince made a name for himself with his risque, but incredibly talented stage antics. And with the recent revolution of the viral video, wonders such as Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus have become infamous for their signature moves. Love 'em or hate 'em, they got your attention!

Here you have the chance to vote on the best musical celebrity dancers.
