Disney girl gone wild Miley Cyrus and provocative crooner Robin Thicke accomplished the near impossible at this year's MTV Video Music Awards by creating genuine controversy and, in doing so, even teaching most of us a new term: Twerking

Cyrus has since released the album "Bangerz," which has received pretty good reviews, but really, it's the twerking that's made her the most famous 20-year-old on the planet.

The VMA were held back in August and everybody, especially people who have their own TV shows, are still talking about the sexy dance move that could very well be recreated  Dec. 18 during 93.3 FLZ’s Jingle Ball at Tampa Bay Times Forum. That's right, pop's most high-profile stars of recent months, at least, will be electrifying the stage, with probably more than just a hint of, ah, erotica, a short drive across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

Even Ophrah can't get enough of the controversy.

“I was walking out towards Miley, [and] I’m not thinking sex. I’m thinking fun, you know?” Thicke tells Oprah Winfrey on this Sunday’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, Entertainment Weekly posted Thursday. ”I mean, her and I don’t have that kind of — and just remember, I’m singing my butt off. So I’m sitting there, I’m looking up at the sky, and I’m singing. I’m not really paying attention to all that. That’s on her.”

“People ask me, ‘Do you twerk?’” Thicke says. “I’m like, ‘Listen, I’m the twerkee. I’m twerked upon.’”

Twerk. Twerkee. Twerked. Yep, it might just be a twerking X-Mas in Tampa, folks.

In addition to Cyrus and Thicke and the titillating possibility of some more twerking between the two, 93.3 FLZ's bash will also feature performances by Enrique Iglesias, Flo Rida, Paramore, Austin Mahone, Ariana Grande, Jason Derulo, Fifth Harmony and Travie McCoy.
