Romney does the Gangnam Style justice on stage CBS

LANHAM, Md.  — Mitt Romney, former presidential candidate and governor of Massachusetts, put on his dancing shoes at a conference for young single members of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints over the weekend.

 Romney, 66, was pulled up on stage by Mormon singer Alex Boyé who then instructed the Republican how to dance “Gangnam Style.”

Proving to be a good sport, the devout member of the LDS did a quick shuffle, sending the audience into an uproar, before hopping off stage all smiles.

The conference was held Jan. 11 on the campus of Arizona State University.

“Gangnam Style” was a song released in 2012 by South Korean artist Psy. The music video quickly went viral and became a worldwide sensation, garnering multiple awards and nominations.
