South Korean rapper Psy has been named an early 2012 American Music Awards (AMAs) - he has been awarded the New Media accolade six days before the red carpet event in Los Angeles.

The star shot to fame overnight with his catchy tune ‘Gangnam Style’ and the promo for the hit single has become the most popular video in YouTube history, receiving more than 717 million views to date since its release in July.

His huge cyber success has now earned him an early AMA prize, following in the footsteps of previous honourees Karmin, DeStorm and Christina Grimmie.

Psy, who shares the same manager as Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun, will be presented with the award during the pre-show activities and will perform his unique dance moves at the Los Angeles ceremony itself.
