Retired NBA champion Shaquille O'Neal has revealed his shocked reaction to seeing pop singer/actress Miley Cyrus take center stage at rapper Juicy J's Hollywood weekend concert and show-off some eye-catching twerking moves.

Shaq took to his Twitter page to question his 7.1 million followers about Miley's grown-up moves.

"Is this lil Miley Cyrus," Shaq tweeted June 9th. (Shaquille O'Neal's Twitter)

Juicy J responded to the ex-Los Angeles Lakers star's reaction and applauded the 20-year-old's moves.

Footage of the intense twerking started to circulate online yesterday (June 9).

Miley Cyrus showed what she's made of on stage during Juicy J's "Stay Trippy" tour stop at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA on Saturday night. The pop star made a surprise appearance during the Three 6 Mafia leader's performance of "Bandz a Make Her Dance," and immediately got to twerking as his club smashed played. Back in March, we got our first taste of Miley's booty popping which instantly became a viral hit. (Miss Info TV)

Earlier this year, Cyrus spoke on winning people over courtesy of a self-made twerk video.

"I just started dancing and [my friend] recorded it and I showed a few people and they said, 'Tweet it,' " she recalled of the clip, which has since become a trending topic and been embraced by hip-hop celebs from Pharrell Williams and to Nelly, Amber Rose and French Montana. "I'm getting so many people writing to me about it. It's kind of weird that I've twerked for 6 million people!" she said before adding, "I'm kind of feeling a little weird." Miley explained that while she's received a lot of Internet hate in the past about any number of things (from criticism of her singing abilities to haters calling her a "hillbilly"), she's received virtually none for her twerking. "I haven't seen one bad comment about my twerk video, but I can twerk, so whatever!" she said. (MTV)
