Psy performs at ‘Christmas in Washington 2012′ and shakes hands with President Obama


Despite receiving a substantial amount of negative press for his past anti-American lyrics, earlier today Psy attended the annual ‘Christmas in Washington 2012‘ presentation at the National Building Museum in Washington.

Psy closed out the show with a rousing rendition of “Gangnam Style“. He was also able to shake hands with President Obama. There is no word on whether he got his chance to teach the ‘horse dance’ directly to the President though.
Hosted this year by Conan O’Brien the concert raises funds for the Children’s National Medical Center. In addition to Psy, Diana Ross, Demi Lovato, Scotty McCreery (of “American Idol“), and Megan Hilty (of “Smash“) also performed at the concert.

The show will air on American cable channel TNT on December 21st.

There has been heated debate on whether or not Psy should have been allowed to perform for the President. Do you think his apology was enough, should he have been removed from the roster of performers?

Considering he didn't write the lyrics himself, I don't think he should have been banned, no.

I think many many people have thought negatively of America at some point, including most Americans. So no. Freedom of speech is one of our chief principals, is it not?

No one cares about any of his other work except for gangnam style so...

I have a feeling that declining PSY actually has greater consequences than allowing him to perform.
I'm pretty sure PSY has a much higher following and approval rate than any politician could even dream of.

idc about the comments. I'm happy for him. Jihye looks happy too lol.

wooow he is really making it. even he becomes just a one hit wonder globally, who cares! he's gotten to do so many more things over these past months than people could dream of during their lifetime. if anything flops from here on, no big, he can always go back to Korea and still have the respect of the people there.

come on. how many people have gotten to perform at a huge event like that and meet the president???

omfg @ that one dancer who looks so bored with his life
hadashi_no_eden 10th-Dec-2012 02:55 pm (UTC)
I really don't think most people don't really know about his comments (it hasn't really been covered that much) or they don't care. I don't really care. Ice T rapped about killing cops and then play one on TV for 10+.

It's good to see Diana Ross up and about though. I heard she was injured.
hipployta 10th-Dec-2012 09:15 pm (UTC)
BWAHAHAHAHA...I'm dying at the Ice-T comment though...True story
