During an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday night, This Is Us star Mandy Moore joked about her lack of rhythm while addressed the confusion people have regarding her and La La Land choreographer Mandy Moore, who also choreographs numbers for Dancing with the Stars. Although they're definitely two different people, the shared name has apparently been causing confusion for quite some time.

"I’ve gotten emails over the years," Moore explained, "People are like 'congrats on the Emmy nod,' and I’m like 'not me.'" Fallon asked if she’s also a dancer, and she responded by saying that she’s "the worse dancer," and that fans can look to her music videos for proof. The '90s singer said,

"I’m the worst dancer, which is the irony here. I have no rhythm. Anybody who watched my music video when I was 15 for 'Candy' can see that I was the worst dancer on the planet."

To be fair, don't we all cringe when we see old pics and vids of ourselves? I mean, I know there are home videos my parents recorded of me dancing and doing silly things that I'd prefer to pretend didn't exist. Luckily, the videos of my are hidden in my parents garage and not easily accessible. Unlucky for her, Moore's music videos are all on VEVO. Or should I say, somewhat unlucky if she finds them embarrassing, but good for us fans who love some nostalgia.

But I'm just going to say it, Moore's dancing seems pretty legit to me.

Definitely moves one can be proud of, IMO. You can watch the full music video below and judge for yourself, but I personally can't seem to find any evidence to support Moore's claim that she's the "worst dancer on the planet."

Fallon followed up Moore’s confession by asking what she does at a weddings, to which she responded, "I try and stay seated and just do a little chair dance. Like groove in the chair."

Yup, totally not buying her claim that she doesn't have any rhythm.
