Nicki Minaj sure twerked it at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards.

During a live performance of "High School," the rapper backed it up and broke it down onstage as a bemused Lil Wayne watched in awe.

But the Ultimate Barb isn't the only celeb with twerking talent. Check out these stars who have the booty-poppin' dance figured out.

Miley Cyrus: Who could forget that amazing, twerking-in-a-unicorn-onesie vid? No one, because it was epic. Miley tried to describe the art that is twerking to Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show, saying, "You can't really explain it. It's something that comes naturally…It's a lot of booty action." Well said.

Ashley Tisdale: The Tiz was a little shy about showing off her twerking skills on Sway's Shade 45 radio show, but she gets an A for effort! The High School Musical alum would not, however, want to face Miley in a twerk-off. "She's very good at it," Ashley told E! News, admitting that in a booty-poppin' competition, "She'd win!"

Kate Upton: This Sports Illustrated swimsuit model rose to fame teaching us how to Dougie, but her twerking moves might even top that. The blond beauty joined Flo Rida on stage for a performance of "Low," and next thing you know, Shawty got low low low low, low low low low.

Justin Bieber: Girls aren't the only ones who know how to get down! Whether his pants are sagging or drop-crotch or purple leopard print, the Biebs (and his backup dancers) knows what the Beliebers wanna see. And this Prince of Twerk has some serious swag on and off the dance floor!

Kendra Wilkinson Baskett: The former Girls Next Door star wasn't a Dancing With the Stars champ, but who needs tangos and foxtrots and all those old-school moves? In 2010, the reality star joined Too Short onstage and proudly, confidently showed off that money-maker!

Who do you think is the best booty-popper of all? Sound off in the comments!
