American Idol's Scotty McCreery is the latest celebrity to get his “Harlem Shake” on.

The season 10 winner enlisted his bandmates to play along to the DJ Baauer hit, which begins with McCreery skillfully tuning his guitar in an empty venue (Pittsburgh's Stage AE), then breaks into a giant dance party for last 15 seconds of the clip.

McCreery is busy recording his second album, set for release later this year via 19/Interscope/Mercury Records. He recently debuted a new song called "See You Tonight."
