It is confirmed!  Psy will be gracing the stage at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards as a VIP and special performer. He was spotted by the MTV team at the MTV VMA Pre-show rehearsal.

In a late night tweet close to 1 AM Pacific Time on September 6th, cable music channel MTV shared an exclusive behind-the-scenes photo:

"A little Gangham Style showed up at The Wanted #VMA preshow!! #Psy"

The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards will broadcast live from The Staples Center in Los Angeles, beginning at 8 PM.  The lineup of stars is gaining attention with Demi Lovato kicking off the event leading the VMA Pre-Show Broadcast.  Carly Rae Jepsen of the popular "Call Me Maybe" hit is also expected in attendance.  Rihanna is also confirmed to be attending, appearing a few minutes before Psy at the rehearsal.  The scale of the 2012 MTV VMA is expected to be monumental with 18 cameras throughout Staples Center capturing all events, as well as a gigantic camera crane. 

This will be the first time since 2005 that a K-Pop star takes on the MTV VMA stage as neither an awardee or a presenter. The last time K-Pop was represented during the show was in 2005 when Rain (Bi) appeared.
