BTS drove fans in the “America’s Got Talent” audience wild during their performance of “Idol” which opened the second half of the season 13 semifinals live results show Sept. 12 on NBC. The track hails from the South Korean K-pop sensations’ most recent chart-topping album, Love Yourself: Answer as its energetic lead single and these boys were all about bringing their swag to the AGT stage.
Camera pans to the audience found girls screaming, shaking, pumping their fists, making hearts with their hands and dancing to the infectious beat and joining in the repeated chant “You can’t stop me loving myself!” Suga, RM, Jin, Jung Kook, V, J-Hope and Jimin rocked the house in sharp, sleek suits while the floor under their feet and screens behind them changed colors in a kind of psychedelic, kaleidoscope fashion, reminiscent of “Idol’s” record-breaking official music video. If AGT fans needed any coaxing to get fired up for the nail-biting results show to follow, BTS cranked the heat WAY UP.
BTS made their “America’s Got Talent” appearance fresh off performing four non-consecutive nights at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. The boyband has amassed their huge ARMY of fans from all over the globe, but, have become wildly popular in the U.S. They just scored their second Billboard 200 chart-topper with Love Yourself: Answer behind Love Yourself: Tear and won Top Social Artist for the second year in a row at this year’s Billboard Music Awards and recently snagged a 2018 American Music Award nomination in the similar/same category Favorite Social Artist.
BTS is currently touring to support Love Yourself: Answer, which is the third album in the Love Yourself trilogy on the Love Yourself World Tour. Watch the entire BTS ‘America’s Got Talent’ performance above and stay tuned to AXS for BTS updates.
