The Olympic flame has been lit and the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea are open, and team USA came out in style.

The opening ceremony kicked off on Friday with what will be the biggest Winter Olympic Games to date with more than 2,900 athletes from 92 countries competing. While the entire ceremony is a grand event, it was team U.S.A.'s walkout song for the Parade of Nations that has everyone pumped. 


The crew from the states got the chance to walk out to "Gangnam Style," by far the most successful Korean pop song ever. The dance craze swept the nation thanks to South Korean musician PSY back in 2012. 

Opening Ceremonies about to go down! We are super excited!

"Gangnam Style" wasn't the only big moment at the ceremony. A unified Korean team of athletes from both the North and South marched out together carrying the unification flag as the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, watched from the stands near Kim Yo-jong, the sister of the North Korean leader.


Don't worry, while half the world was asleep and missed the ceremony, NBC will re-air it all on Friday night at 8 p.m. ET.
