FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Dance sensation Psy clinched the coveted Best Video prize at the 19th annual MTV Europe Music Awards for his record-breaking hit Gangnam Style.

Skipping through the venue and on to the main stage in a sparkly blue jacket with his horse riding-inspired dance, he became the first South Korean artist to perform at the annual awards.

"This is beautiful. This is my very first time to participate, perform, be nominated, as an Asian artist, as a Korean artist, so I don't know what to say," he told journalists backstage.

He added that his next album would have more English songs on it.
