MANILA, Philippines - The "Gangnam Style" dance craze has hit Australia and former Spice Girls member Mel B did it with Psy himself.
Psy flew to Australia on Oct. 15 for a promo tour. His first appearance was on "X Factor" Australia on Oct. 16 where he showed judge Mel B how to do the signature horse-riding dance.
Mel B was chosen by the viewers to dance "Gangnam Style".

For a brief moment, Psy and Mel B danced after which she told the Korean rapper that she was honored.
"My daughter said she'd cook me breakfast in bed on Friday and I have to say you are a legend. Thank you. I do feel honored. I thought my legs were about to snap," she said.
