Source: The Straits TimesA holiday concert attended Sunday by President Barack Obama and his family included some non-traditional entertainment this year: a performance by South Korean rapper and Internet sensation PSY.PSY- wearing an all-red outfit including a sparkling, sequined top- was backed by dancers wearing reindeer antlers as he performed his popular Gangnam Style dance, which mimics riding a horse.The rapper, born Park Jae Sang, had apologised on Friday for using what he called "inflammatory and inappropriate language" during anti-US protests at concerts in 2002 and 2004. The flak from his remarks didn't dampen the festive holiday mood on Sunday.Other performers at the charity concert included Diana Ross, Demi Lovato, American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and Megan Hilty, star of the NBC musical drama Smash. In brief remarks, Mr Obama said the celebration was "a chance to get in the Christmas spirit, spread some joy and sing along with artists who have much better voices than we do."
