Psy: 'Gangnam Style' with MC Hammer at AMAs 2012!

Psy hits the stage at the 2012 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 18) in Los Angeles.

The South Korean Internet sensation closed the show with a performance of his viral hit “Gangnam Style,” and was joined on stage by surprise guest MC Hammer!

“How lucky I am!! Gonna be the Closing of #AMAs!! #HammerTime,” Psy tweeted before taking the stage.

Earlier in the night, Psy hit the red carpet and even took time to sign autographs for fans before heading inside to enjoy the show.

We already saw this in 1993.

This song is annoying, but I did like Hammer (he really doesn’t get enough props for his performing because he can perform his butt off).

MC Hammer still got the moves!!! :D

@um: and I’m glad we had it again tonight, at least in the early 90′s the music world was packed (M. & J.Jackson, W. Houston, Boyz II Men,Tupac, Dre, Snoop, Notorious, TLC, Nirvana, Jeff Buckley…) opposite of the crap we have now!

Hammer Time!! @ 11/19/2012 at 12:45 am

I caught this performance while waiting for the news and i am glad I did. I never heard the song before because I don’t listen to the crap they call music today. It was nice to see Hammer.

Hammer’s too legit, too legit to quit!! Stop Hammer Time!

@jkbnl: yep, let’s say that 50 yrs old MC Hammer could teach 1 or 2 (not to say a zillion) things to every AMA “so called” winner of tonight!

@um:
And I would love to see it in 2012 if it meant bringing back the talent and performing.
MC Hammer damn near 50 was there outperforming and out entertaining people half his age and that is damn shame.

these awards shows are a joke it’s a pop poop fest where no one even writes, sings or stays with the same band for more than 30 days… a total narcissistic circle jerk of no talent phonies ….

This was so random I couldn’t help but LOL watching it. Eric Stonestreet’s expression when Hammer came out was priceless.

Wife – AMAs are on
Me – meh
Wife – Psy is doing his gay cowboy dance again
Me – I might come watch, but probably not
Wife – Hey. MC Hammer is on
Me – Really? Walks into other room
Mc Hammer – Rockin his sox off
Me – OK we gotta rewind this!

Those were some badass moves! Hammer and PSY killed it!

Pink’s was the first artistic performance i have to say, but i didn’t like the violent imagery. artistically though it was good.

-STILL
THE BEST FUNNEST MOST JOYFUL PERFORMANCE WAS THE PSY/HAMMER ONE

I loved this! PSY deserves to get a BillBoard #1 with this Song!

That performance was Fantastic and EVERYONE was having a Great Tie, Such Energy!!!

the song is funny but it’s quite amazing for Psy he was unknown a few months ago and now he sang at the Eiffel tower and the AMA and even with Madonna.

Dave Franco @ 11/19/2012 at 9:58 am

Minaj, Keesha, Bieber, Swiftie, Psy… all about commercial success, not about talent. It’s a travesty!

it was a very good performance next to Pink!!

was that elisha cuthbert getting down to the song? xD
