Watch: Psy Teams Up With MC Hammer For An AWESOME ‘Gangnam Style’ Mash-Up With ‘2 Legit 2 Quit’ At The American Music Awards


Last week we saw video of Madonna on stage with Korean pop sensation Psy performing his massive worldwide hit Gangnam Style and at the time, I thought it was the only acceptable way to enjoy the somewhat annoying song. Today, I stand corrected. Last night, during the American Music Awards, Psy performed Gangnam Style to close the show … but midway thru his performance he brought MC Hammer on stage to mash-up his song with Hammer’s 2 Legit 2 Quit. Folks, as much as I don’t love the Gangnam Style song, this mash-up performance is AMAZING! Utterly and Truly. Check out the video above to see for yourselves. I know we gave Justin Bieber major grief for his silly baggy pants yesterday but I’m not kidding when I say it’s really very cool to see MC Hammer rock his Hammer Pants again … and rock them right! Enjoy!!

    I love Gangnam style, and Psy- and about lost it when he was wearing hammer-pants. This version is great!

    i love all things gangnam style (i know, i know) and this can be added to the list. so great.
    and i love seeing celebs having fun with it.

    I HATE Gangnam style, lol. But the 2Legit mash makes it almost tolerable. It makes me sad to think that probably 95% of the non-industry fans watching (and honestly, probably a number of the younger industry fans too) have likely never heard 2Legit or have any idea who the heck MC Hammer is. Ugh. Getting old sucks, lol

    I Love Psy! the more I read about the actual man himself, I am so very happy to see him succeed, and I hope he can retain his success for a long time :)

    • Krissy

      Tell me more! What is his story? :)

    • Liz

      He was already a successful and controversy singer in Korea.Almost all the songs he made in Korea didn’t go well with the conservative nature of the culture. Let’s just say he got fined a lot. lol

    That was awesome!! Good to see Hammer rocking the Hammer pants

    RE: “Hammer Time is The ONLY Acceptable Way to Enjoy ‘Gangnam Style'”

    Also, the ONLY time wearing hammer pants is acceptable! Someone should explain that to the Beibs.

    • @Jade — Preach!!!!!

    this was easily the highlight of the night for me. let me tell you..when 2 Legit started…oh boy i was excited. that use to be my jam.

  • Alex

    I loved this so much I watched it twice last night! Died laughing.

  • Joan

    This was so much fun to watch, but the best part of it all was the look on Eric Stonestreet’s (from Modern Family) face at 2:44. He made my life at that point.
