BTS are the biggest boy band in the world right now so it made perfect sense that they channel another superstand band – The Beatles.
The K-pop superstars appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to perform their hit Halsey collaboration Boy With Luv, and while their currently pop’s hottest sensations, the boys travelled back in time a few years.
Filmed at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in Manhattan, the performance opened with a group of girls dressed in typical ‘60s attire, including short bobs, who screamed hysterically and fawned over BTS as they took to the stage.
Donning black suits and ties, BTS delivered their slick Boy With Luv choreography with the colour stripped out for black and white visuals.
Jimin, V, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, Jungkook and RM later joined Colbert to pay homage to The Beatles and their success.
A narrator said: ‘And now, on the same stage 50 years later, plus 5 years, 3 months, 6 days, a new batch of mop-topped heartthrobs has landed.
Colbert then chimed in: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we’ve got a big, big show and it continues. You may have heard there’s a new musical craze sweeping the globe. These fellas are really something, and people are so excited, you can only call it BTS-mania.
‘These boys aren’t from America. No, they’re from across the pond — the big one. The one with Hawaii in the middle. They’re really a fine group of youngsters. You can call them the Fab 7. It’s got a nice ring to it.’
It had been a busy day for BTS who earlier performed on Good Morning America at Central Park to kick-off the show’s summer concert series.
Coincidentally, the boys had expressed their appreciation of The Beatles while speaking to GMA hosts Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts.
Rapper RM said: ‘I mean, we’re all fanboys of [the] Beatles, of course — who is not?
‘We feel so honoured to be with the greatest names in the music industry.’
Now all they need is Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr’s approval.
BTS are currently in the midst of their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself Tour across North America.
