BTS ARMY get ready because BTS will be rocking the “America’s Got Talent” Dolby Theatre stage on Wednesday, Sept. 12 during the live results show on NBC. AGT host Tyra Banks dropped the exciting news during the first semifinals elimination round which aired Sept. 5.
BTS will perform their hot new single “Idol” for the AGT judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum, the live audience and millions of viewers, a press release revealed following the announcement. The track hails from the South Korean boy band’s latest album, Love Yourself: Answer, which is their second Billboard 200 chart-topping album behind Love Yourself: Tear. As previously reported, BTS also earns an impressive new distinction with this chart feat, by becoming the first pop band since One Direction to earn two Billboard 200 No. 1s in less than 12 months.
BTS members RM, SUGA, Jin, V, j-hope, Jimin and Jung Kook have virtually taken the music world by storm since they crashed onto the global music scene in 2013. Love Yourself: Answer is the third album in the Love Yourself trilogy, which all come via Big Hit Entertainment. BTS is an acronym for Bangtan Sonyeondan or “Beyond the Scene.”
The lead single from Love Yourself: Tear, “Fake Love” notably debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the highest-charting single by a K-pop group. “Idol” is the lead single from Love Yourself: Answer and the music video for the track set two YouTube records for the biggest 24-hour view tally and the fastest video to top 100 million views. “Idol” also helped BTS make history as the first K-pop band to land a UK Top 40 singles chart hit, coming in at No. 21.
BTS sends fans into a frenzy at live shows all over the globe. They performed an epic rendition of “Fake Love” at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards earlier this year, where they also won the Top Social Artist Award for the second year in a row.
The BTS “America’s Got Talent” guest appearance on Sept. 12 will follow a series of live shows at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Sept. 6. (Tickets), Sept. 8 (Tickets), and Sept. 9 (Tickets) from the Love Yourself World Tour.
Tune into “America’s Got Talent” to watch BTS perform on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC and stay tuned to AXS for BTS and AGT updates.
