PSY Performs "Gangnam Style" On the "Today" Show
Just days after teaching the horse hop "Gangnam Style" dance to Britney Spears and Simon Cowell on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," South Korean rapper PSY appeared on "Today" and performed his high-energy hit song.
Dressed in a light green coat and black pants, the YouTube sensation taught the show's hosts how to pull off his trademark dance move, and the crowd, which had a large Korean contingent, loved every second of his cameo.
Not only was he brilliant during his performance, but he also showed his witty verbal side to the fans. When one of the hosts asked him where he got the inspiration for the horse hop dance, the K-pop artist instantly replied: "Honestly, it came from (a) horse."
After the electrifying performance, he sat down for a chat with the "Today" team and confessed that he never thought "Gangnam Style" would prove to be such a massive hit. "I didn't expect that at all. I just unloaded this video only for the Korean viewers in YouTube and suddenly, within 60 days, I'm here," he said.
PSY, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang, is an established artist in his native South Korea with more than a decade of mainstream music experience under his belt. However, he has only just found fame in the US and he is aware that making a place for himself in this new industry won't be easy.
"[I'm a] rookie here now, so I got to do it all over again, like 12 years ago," the 34-year-old added.
He then revealed that next on his immediate agenda is to release an english song.
