The South Korean singer lived up to his reputation for whimsy and eccentricity with a crazy performance featuring a David Hasselhoff appearance (on a toilet!) and a background with thousands of dancing cartoon PSYs that soon turned into a real-life crew of backup dancing PSY look-alikes. PSY and his slew of backup dancers had the crowd going wild throughout the entire performance. Following the mesmerizing show, PSY asked his fans for their opinions regarding the performance, tweeting, “How was it!? Am I #EMAzingPSY!!???” We’d say so.
PSY’s outrageous and viral music video for “Gangnam Style” isn’t just the most-watched K-pop video on YouTube; the Korean wonder also crushed Bieber and LMFAO on Thursday, earning a Guinness World Record title for “Gangnam Style,” which is now the most “liked” clip ever on the video-sharing site.
In September, PSY shared his thought process for the “Gangnam Style” video with MTV News. “With this video and director we kept on focusing on to be ridiculous as possible, that was our point,” PSY said. “So we were so serious thinking to be ridiculous.”
If we had to guess, we’d say the singer probably had similar intentions for his ridiculous EMA performance.
