First American Stage Performance at the AMAs
What could undoubtedly be the most-awaited part of the American Music Awards 2017 is their performance of “DNA”. They truly made history as the first Korean boyband to ever perform at an American Awards Show, blowing everyone away with an electrifying and jaw dropping song and dance routine.
American TV Show Guest Appearances
The group also experienced their first ever guest appearances and performances at a number of widely known American TV shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Ellen Show, and The Late Late Show with James Corden.
“MIC Drop” Steve Aoki Remix
It may not be their first collab with a Western artist, but it’s one that definitely broke the charts. This remix features English lyrics to make it more accessible and “sing-able” to international fans and also contains Desiigner’s own rap verse in the recorded version. The music video is pretty dope too.

According to the official website, BTS will donate a portion of their income from album sales and 100% of all profits from the sale of goods to numerous social programs.
