TORONTO – South Korean pop sensation Psy is set to co-host and perform at the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto.
The “Gangnam Style” star will bring his current YouTube hit single “Gentleman” to Toronto for the Canadian TV block party to air on MuchMusic and Fuse in the U.S.
“Psy is really going to bring the party to this year’s MMVAs,” said Sheila Sullivan, executive producer of the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards.
“His explosive energy and fun approach to music is a great fit for the MMVAs, and our audience,” she added in a statement.
Psy’s “Gangnam Style” single is YouTube’s most-watched video of all time at 1.5 billion views.
“Gentleman,” which features the 35-year-old goofball lothario debuting a new hip-swinging signature dance, was viewed a record 215 million times in the first ten days of release on YouTube.
The MMVAs earlier announced Demi Lovato as a performer at the June 16 music video kudosfest.
