Korea definitely has talent, and America’s Got Talent made sure audiences knew that fact inside and out this week. If you haven’t heard, the popular talent show brought on BTS for a special performance last night, and the Internet has yet to recover from the ordeal.
Are you okay, ARMY? If you are still with us, raise your Bangtan Bombs high!
As you can see below, the global idols took to America’s Got Talent last night to perform their latest single “Idol”. BTS hit the stage all dressed in color-coded suits, leaving fans around the world to fawn over their sharp looks.

As the stage continued, fans were given a look at BTS’ precise choreography, and their live microphones left no room for anyone to accuse them of lip syncing. J-Hope and Suga delivered their tongue-tying raps with ease, and RM made sure to hype the crowd up with some high energy ad libs.
By the performance’s end, even the hosts of America’s Got Talent were enamored with the group, and V knocked that love up a level by giving the crowd a cute smile. As you can see in the slides below, fans are still not over the gesture, and it has quickly become a viral reaction GIF within the K-pop fandom.
The special stage marks the first time BTS has performed on America’s Got Talent or any American talent program. It also marked their first live stage on a prime-time TV show in the states, joining their late-night performances on show like The Late Late Show.
If you are hoping to one day see BTS perform live, there is good and bad news for you now. The band is currently on a world tour, and BTS is in the U.S. for its North American leg. The bad news is that the tour sold-out within minutes, so the fight to get resale tickets will be a difficult (and expensive) one.
So, what did you think of this electrifying performance? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
