Was Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Better than ‘New York Style’? Successful Performance on 'Today' Show

Rapper Psy continues to write new history in his career and well as in K-Pop.
Today, Psy performed live his popular song "Gangnam Style" on "Today" show at 8:30AM EDT with a huge crowd.
"Today" show is one of the famous American news program on MSNBC. It was the first time for K-Pop artist to perform on the stage.
Fans in New York gathered from midnight and lined up to watch the show live which was made on the outdoor stage right next to Rockefeller Center, waiting 8 hours outside just to watch short performance of Psy was not a big deal to them.
Psy was introduced as 'World Star' with his song "Gangnam Style," heating up the outdoor stage with his trade mark horse-dance was taught again to the anchors Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Natalie Morales, and "Meet the Press" anchor David Gregory, during the interview before his actual performance, as how hosts on every other program wanted to learn.
During the interview, Psy mentioned about the lyrics of the song, "I describe it as noble at the daytime and going crazy at the nighttime," causing everyone to laugh.
Interestingly what all the audience emphasized about him was his handsome appearance which was unexpected. When he was introduced as 'not pretty boy', everyone said 'boo----'.
It seems that it's not only K-Pop sensation that Psy is bringing up but also Korean culture and language. As how Psy made his reflection in Korean on MTV VMA, he also greeted fans on the stage stating "Daehanminkuk Mansai" (Korea Fighting). Non-Korean fans tried to find out the meaning from the Korean fans. Anchors were also greeted each other as saying 'How are you' in Korean in the beginning of the show.
Because the response of outdoor stage was so hot, Psy sang an encore performance which never happened in the history of "Today" show.
This morning New York seems be buzzing with shouts of Psy and his fans crying out "Hey, Sexy Lady."
