Jordin Sparks teaches Pop Shop editor Jason Lipshutz how to "Double Tap" in the video series "So You Know You Can't Dance."

I don’t know how to dance — but I’m ready to learn. Watch the former “Idol” champ teach me her “Double Tap” moves.

Welcome to the latest installment of So You Know You Can't Dance,'s web series in which music biggest stars teach me, the Most Awkward Dancer Alive, some of their moves. This week we have Jordin Sparks, the former American Idol champ and singer-songwriter behind hits like "No Air" and "Tattoo," try to teach me the dance moves from her recent "Double Tap" music video. Watch Jordin try to impart the double-tap -- and follow along with the steps yourself!

Sparks' long-awaited return to music features a more rhythmic sound and a 2 Chainz guest verse, and while the "Double Tap" video has 2.6 million YouTube views, it lacks the presence of a tall dude in a headband trying to double-tap. Sparks teaches me the arm-waggle and Sister Act 2 sway, among other moves, but can I pull it all together for a performance set to the Instagram ode?
