MC Hammer did TWO incredible things at the Gathering of Juggalos festival in Illinois last night -- first, he wasn't killed ... and second, HE DID THE HAMMER DANCE!!!!!!!!
Hammer gyrated the hell out of himself while performing "U Can't Touch This" -- and it was so enchanting ... the Juggalos actually restrained themselves from hurling objects at his face.
Impressive, considering the Juggalos bloodied up last year's performers -- Method Man and Tila Tequila -- by pelting them with beer cans with Nolan Ryan-esque accuracy.
He told you, homeboy ... you can't touch this.
