Marina Bay Sands Gets Singapore PSYched Up, Gangnam Style

 

The man is inescapable. Psy danced his way into town last weekend for a one-night-only showcase with a difference—the mini-concert was an opportunity for aspiring dancers from Singapore's O School to strut their stuff on stage with the K-pop sensation. 

Performing a three-song medley to thousands of screaming fans at the Event Plaza at Marina Bay Sands, the rotund star, swathed in an blindingly flashy black sequinned jacket with a bright cerulean sash, was flown in for a very special "Give Back to Singapore" public performance.

At a press session before his performance, Psy expressed his admiration at the dancing skills of the young Singaporeans, and said he would pop by for another visit after the release of his album in March.

Meanwhile, George Tanasijevich, President & Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands said of the pop phenomenon's engagement with O School's budding talents: “The young students of O School opened the PSY showcase, revving up the over 4,000 members of the audience with Psy's signature Gangnam Style, while infusing their own panache into the number."

"The talents of O School are incredible dancers who demonstrated professionalism and excellent showmanship during the showcase. Marina Bay Sands is honoured to have them as one of our designated charities.”
