Viral videos often give way to covers and parodies, and Psy’s viral hit Gangnam Style was no exception, literally shaking up the world, as it had fans galloping along, doing the song’s signature horse-riding dance.

Included in the Psy fan category are celebrities, and below are a few of our favorite celebrities-gone-Gangnam Style moments below!

[Star of the Week] Best Celebrity Dance Covers of Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’

Nelly Furtado

Not only did Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado horse around to Gangnam Style at her concert in Manila last summer, she even wrote her own English lyrics to the song for the performance.

Hugh Jackman

Who knew Wolverine could bust a move?

After one day with Psy, it appeared Australian actor and star of the X-Men series Hugh Jackman had caught the Psy bug good, even teaching Jay Leno the moves on his The Tonight Show with Jay Leno appearance at the end of last year.

Based on what we’ve seen, Hugh Jackman would fit right in at the clubs. Jay Leno? Not so much.

Glee cast

Sure, topping the music charts is a sure sign that your song’s a hit. But nowadays, it’s not hot unless the cast of popular American TV show Glee covers it.

Gangnam Style got the Glee stamp of approval, when the cast performed its own rendition on the show.

After teasing fans with a behind-the-scenes look of the cast rehearsing, New Directions went Gangnam Style on the show’s Thanksgiving episode.


While idol groups a-many have shown us their best horseriding dance moves, there’s nothing quite like seeing girl group members get their Gangnam Style on, but our favorite girl groups-gone-Gangnam Style moment has to be when the Girls’ Generation (SNSD) members horsed around.

A fan caught this moment of the girls letting loose at the Look Concert.

Even model citizen Seohyun takes a ride on the wild side.

MC Hammer

Our all-time favorite dance cover, however, has to be of Gangnam Style gone Hammer time.

It was an epic old school meets new school moment, when M.C. Hammer broke it down in a Gangnam Style 2 Legit 2 Quit mashup.

The American rapper of U Can’t Touch This-fame proved he’s still got it in the dance cover.

Which celeb cover was your favorite?
