South Korean rapper PSY returned to the “Today” show Friday to perform a new dance move for his new hit single "Gentleman.” He called the new dance, which involves a swaying of the hips, with one hand positioned under his chin, the “arrogant dance."

"You should be arrogant [when doing it]," he instructed the “Today” anchors.

Matt Lauer showed off his moves -- complete with sunglasses -- which PSY noted was "Wow! Beautiful." He suggested the two dance together later in the show. Lauer wouldn’t commit.

But it wasn't just the anchors in New York who got involved. Everyone from David Gregory in Washington, D.C. to Al Roker in Kentucky couldn't help but bust a move.

This was PSY’s second appearance on the “Today” show. Last September, the pop sensation showed off his signature "Gangnam Style" moves on the plaza, after the music video went viral within two months. He said that he “got a lot” of publicity from the appearance.

"So once again, thanks again for having me here one more time, ‘Today' show,” he said.

The "Gentleman" video has already racked up more than 273 million hits on his page, while "Gangnam Style" is the most-viewed pop video on YouTube, with more than 1.5 billion hits since its release.

Friday morning, “Today” also announced the lineup for its Toyota Summer Concert Series, which will officially kick off on Friday, May 24 with performances by the indie pop band, Fun.

This year’s all-star lineup includes One Direction and Chris Brown, who brought record-setting crowds to previous “Today” performances.

The 2013 series also features rock bands Maroon 5, Train and Fall Out Boy as well as singer-songwriters John Mayer, Michael Buble, Lionel Richie and Ed Sheeran. In addition, boy bands New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men will join forces in one blow-out concert. The series also features country music stars The Band Perry, Phillip Phillips, Hunter Hayes and Luke Bryan.
