oh good, i don't have to sit through another possibly boring performance. tswift's basic performance nearly killed me and ke$ha was so stiff

ikr thank god for psy, what a performer. idek what imagery/metaphor nicki minaj was going for.
liaison_alley 19th-Nov-2012 05:22 am (UTC)
Without question, the best performance of the whole show.

my dad loves gangnam style and was already fan boying, but when mc hammer came out...

it was over. he could rival some of the biggest stans. i enjoyed watching him more.

man that performance was so good.
lysblack 19th-Nov-2012 05:32 am (UTC)
it was awesome tbh, i loved it.

No wonder they saved him for last as he would have made everyone whose performance followed him look like a total loser.
markthatcoin 19th-Nov-2012 05:40 am (UTC)
or they saved him for last to make everyone forget how terrible the earlier performances had been
orangeinsanity 19th-Nov-2012 05:39 am (UTC)
Damn, ngl that was a great performance!
markthatcoin 19th-Nov-2012 05:39 am (UTC)
this was awesome, i'd been live-hate-texting the rest of the show with friends but when psy showed up i was XD

i keep thinking i'm ready for this song to fade out but every time i hear it on the radio in my car i'm jamming like nobody's business

I'm just waiting for them to resurrect Michael Jackson to dance Gangnam style cause that's pretty much the only place left to go. Every time I say there's no way Psy can top the last thing he goes one further.
shanny_w 19th-Nov-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
this reminds me to check the mj death hoax forums. they kept giving me comeback dates but none of them came true... yet.
hpn88 19th-Nov-2012 05:47 am (UTC)
i had no idea MC hammer collab was happening. pure happiness is what im feeling rn
whysojaelous 19th-Nov-2012 05:48 am (UTC)
I genuinely want Psy to succeed after Gangnam Style cools down. He's an amazing performer and he seriously slayed it.

Almost stopped watching after tswift's definition of basic performance.
kiku_cha8_8 19th-Nov-2012 06:27 am (UTC)
word on tswift being basic as hell.
mentality34 19th-Nov-2012 05:50 am (UTC)
love the perfff but what is with the sound? i wanted to be able to hear him sing. it sounded like they were trying to drown him out with the background music

Still waiting for this performance, i want to watch it on tv. It sucks being 3 hrs behind sometimes.

That is the most excited I have seen the audience at an AMAs like... Ever. Hell, that's right up there with the audiences at, like. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame jam sessions.

Which is, I think, the most compelling argument for the Gangnam Style phenomenon's ability to shift perceptions of Korean-language music in the English-language markets. Musicians and performers love the song, and Psy as a performer, and it's not like Gangnam Style is that far outside of the norm for K-Pop in general.

It's a really great song, but it's a great song that definitely has antecedents and close cousins when it comes to the style of music and the quality of performance, which I think is why it will have a lasting effect on how Korean pop music is perceived in the English language music market. Really well crafted pop music is a ready export, especially when its promotional tools (music videos and live stages) are eye-catching and fun. Korean labels are doing a better job of managing those aspects of the business than pretty much anyone else right now, and I think it wouldn't take much for everything to get really, really big really really fast.

Also, that was fucking awesome. Like, awe-inspiringly fun.
