Jesse Tyler Ferguson has been a judge on “So You Think You Can Dance” several times. But they never let him try out for the competition. That has changed — the “Modern Family” star showed off his moves in a tryout for “So You Think You Can Dance Australia.”

Let’s just say that there may be a reason Ferguson has never tried out before.

Strangely, it’s actually an impressive dance in its own way. Ferguson is obviously a very gifted performer, so even the more awkward of his moves have some charm. And that soft-shoe bit in the middle almost looks like he knows what he’s doing.

What would you call this kind of dancing? That’s hard to say, but Ferguson himself goes with “all-genre.”

He probably isn’t going to win though, even if he does get a standing ovation.
