Rock'n'Roll legend Chubby Checker wants to record duets with Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles - because he believes he inspired their music and dancing.
Checker claims his 1960 hit The Twist revolutionised dancing, and Timberlake and Knowles are his disciples.
He says, "Before Chubby Checker there was no dancing apart to the beat. The world forever changed the way it danced.
"I'd love to play with Justin Timberlake or Beyonce, because everytime these kids throw their arms up in the air or move their feet, they're doing my dances. I have a connection with these young people.
"I'm one of the best performers that ever lived; I don't mean to sound big-headed, but I know what I can do onstage."
