You might not feeling comfortable busting out your craziest dance moves unless you're alone in your bedroom with the door locked. But the mantra "dance like nobody's watching" isn't quite as easy when you're a superstar with millions of fans hanging on to your every move. Some of our favorite celebs are surprisingly talented -- who knew Zac Efron had moves like Jagger? -- but others (Zayn Malik, we're sorry) should stick to their day jobs.

Zayn was so nervous about the second bootcamp challenge during his run on <em>X Factor UK</em>, he almost skipped it entirely. Judge Simon Cowell noticed Zayn wasn't dancing on stage with the rest of the guys, so he gave the singer a pep talk to boost his confidence. Clearly, it worked -- now, Zayn dances with One Direction all the time!
Taylor Swift And Zac Efron
What's a superstar to do when even the red carpet starts to feel a little dull? Taylor Swift and Zac Efron spiced up the <em>Lorax</em> premiere by sneaking up behind celebrities to strut their best dance moves. They caught Betty White, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, and Akon, then bragged about their success to Ellen DeGeneres.
Debby Ryan And Anna Mae Routledge
Sure, actresses work crazy, long hours, but that doesn't mean they can't goof off and act their age every once in awhile. Debby Ryan and Anna Mae Routledge flaunt their silliest dance moves on the set of their movie <em>16 Wishes</em>.
Justin is hardly shy about showing off his dancing prowess. When he appeared on <em>Ellen</em>, he broke down "the dougie" step by step and, well, taught her how to dougie. Ellen commented, "You're a really good dancer."
Have you ever played your favorite music video over and over to learn the dance moves? Clearly, Miley has. Here, she replicates Lady Gaga's moves from <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrO4YZeyl0I">"Bad Romance."</a> Do you think she pulled it off?

During an <em>SNL</em> skit in 2009, Taylor Lautner trotted out his nerdiest dance moves. What's going on with the weird facial expressions and thumbs up?
Kat Graham And Candice Accola
Aww! Kat Graham and Candice Accola play BFFs on <em>The Vampire Diaries</em>, but they look just as tight in real life. Co-star Nina Dobrev filmed them performing an energetic routine during dance class.
Even though Cory spends a <em>ton</em> of time in dance rehearsals for <em>Glee</em>, he still isn't too confident on the dance floor. He demonstrates his signature club dance moves for Conan -- it's hilarious!
