New York welcomed 2013 "Gangnam Style".

PSY, alongside special guests MC Hammer, Yoo Jae-seok and Noh Hong-chul, tore the stage down with his signature horse dance on ABC's legendary Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve show.

For what could possibly be America's last time, the crowd jumped up and down to his hit single, while he had everyone, including Taylor Swift and One Direction's Harry Styles, chanting the chorus.

But 35-year-old PSY, who dressed in a fluffy white jacket and suit, tells IdolWow! that this could be one of the last times he performs the song in America.

"I couldn't think of a better end to the year," he says. "Each month has taken me by surprised. I would never have believed this could have happened. We're now busy working on the second single. I want to leave 'Gangnam [Style]' on a high note. I think tonight could have been that."

A rep for the rapper says he will leave for Paris soon and then traveling back Los Angeles to record new material before a special performance in China.

On July 15, PSY's global hit "Gangnam Style" video was first uploaded on YouTube. Since then the video has surpassed 1 billion views and he has signed by Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun.

"I just want to keep going, keep entertaining," he told Ryan Seacrest after his New Year's Eve show.
