Gangnam Style singer PSY performs at Miami

He is currently facing backlash after a 2004 rap he did about killing U.S. troops recently surfaced.

But PSY isn’t keeping a low profile despite the controversy surrounding him.

The singer performed his hit Gangnam Style at the Y100 Jingle Ball in Miami on Saturday.

The furore seemed the furthest thing from the South Korean star’s mind as he cavorted about the stage, pulling his now famous dance moves in a beige suit jacket, black trousers and undone bow tie.

PSY, 34, is under fire for his actions during an anti-American protest in Seoul in 2004, in which he smashed a model American tank live on stage.

He first held the tank above his head, before throwing it to the floor and violently breaking it up with a microphone stand.

The demonstration happened during strong anti-American sentiment in the country after a 50-tonne U.S. armoured vehicle killed two 14-year-old South Korean girls, Shim Mi-seon and Shin Hyo-sun, on their way to a birthday party.

He rapped about 'killing those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives.

'Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers. Kill them all slowly and painfully.'

But despite the backlash PSY is still set to perform as planned at the Christmas in Washington concert later this month and President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be there to watch him.

TNT - the TV station airing the annual spectacle on December 21 - told NBC News that PSY will still close the annual event and the Obama's will attend the concert, as per tradition. 

Meanwhile PSY shared the stage with other stars at the Jingle Ball bash.

Justin Bieber was also in attendance, while Enrique Iglesias was joined by his stunning tennis star girlfriend Anna Kournikova.
