Pudsey to go Gangnam Style for National Television Awards
Thursday 17 January 2013
Dancing dog Pudsey is going to bust a move Gangnam Style in front of a prime-time audience at the National Television Awards.
The Britain's Got Talent winner, along with owner Ashleigh Butler, will perform at next week's event at London's O2.
The dance craze, which made South Korean pop singer Psy a worldwide star, has led to hundreds of copycat videos with teachers, police officers and even soldiers based in Afghanistan getting in on the act.
Psy's original promotional film for the song became the first video to reach one billion views on video hosting site YouTube.
The awards, commonly known as the NTAs, will see Doctor Who and Sherlock go head to head for two prizes.
The shows - both created by writer and producer Steven Moffat - will challenge for best drama, while stars Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch are in the running for best male actor.
The prizes are handed out at a star-studded ceremony next Wednesday.
