Without a doubt, “Gangnam Style” will be playing at every New Year’s Eve party across the world, so it only makes sense to have the man himself perform at the biggest blowout of them all.
A rep for PSY exclusively tells IdolWow! that the rapper will be a live guest on ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve tomorrow night – alongside MC Hammer!
After the success of their November stage at the American Music Awards, the pair have agreed to reunite one last time to perform their epic mashup of “Gangnam Style” and Hammer’s “2 Legit to Quit”.
“It’s going to be a huge show,” promises an ABC rep, who adds that other star performers on the night include Taylor Swift, Flo Rida and Carly Rae Jepsen.
The idea for the unlikely pairing first came up during a meeting with PSY, who turns 35 tomorrow, and his manager Scooter Braun. “We spoke about doing something special, to be big, to be massive, to be something,” the rapper has said of the collaboration. “And then all of a sudden, Scooter says ‘How about MC Hammer?’ and then [there was] a 10 second pause. At the eleventh second we said the same thing at the same time, which was ‘WTF’.
“But I love working together [with MC Hammer]. We’ve had some other ideas.”
PSY is currently preparing for his second single.
