BTS has been incredibly busy playing sold-out live shows all over the world and recently making history as the first K-pop band to ever address the United Nations. Last night, (Sept. 25) they stopped by “The Tonight Show” and chatted with host Jimmy Fallon about their new album Love Yourself Answer and graciously agreed to tackle the Fornite Dance Challenge with the Emmy-winning talk show host.
The BTS ARMY would probably argue there are no better dance masters than RM, Suga, V, J-Hope, Jin, Jimin, and Jungkook. Let’s just say they smashed the challenge, individually mimicking characters from the popular video game like Orange Justice, Tidy, Flapper, The Worm, Electro Shuffle, The Robot and many more. Big props should go to Jimmy Fallon, who notably didn’t do too bad when it was his turn to imitate Zany and Boneless.
The guys danced in groups at times and then did solo moves. It was a sweet bonus treat to watch BTS school Fallon on those super-smooth “Idol” dance moves. (Watch the entire Fornite Dance Challenge in the video embedded above).
In their interview, RM, who introduced himself as the leader and translator for the group, admitted to being nervous while making his historic UN address. He said his hands were shaking as he spoke and when Fallon asked about BTS' message, RM stressed the message is to “speak yourself” and “love yourself.” The boys also said they’re having a great time in New York City, with J-Hope getting excited about the shopping in SoHo.
BTS has had massive success in the wake of their history-making Billboard 200 chart-topping album Love Yourself Answer. The video for the lead single, “Idol” also set a YouTube record for the most views in its first 24 hours. BTS are currently touring on the Love Yourself World Tour including two nights at The O2 in London, United Kingdom on Oct. 9 (Tickets) and Oct. 10 (Tickets). Stay tuned to AXS for BTS updates.
