Relive all the best moments from when BTS took over New York City and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is working hard to keep the positive vibes flowing and spread smiles in these unnerving times. There isn’t a better late night show to do so and there may not be a better band to help than BTS.
Jimmy Fallon has been producing at-home versions of The Tonight Show all week. He has received help from his family along with guests like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jennifer Garner, and J Balvin. The best part is not only Fallon and the Tonight Show writers providing laughs but each night highlights a different charity.
With the week wrapped up, The Tonight Show decided to look back to a simpler, and much more exciting time: the BTS takeover. The K-pop sensations were given a very special episode of The Tonight Show to promote the release of their album Map of the Soul: 7.
What ended up happening was something unlike anything else we’ve seen in late night television. The band did everything–interviews, games, answered fan questions, and of course a live performance.
If you missed it or just want to watch it again, The Tonight Show has you covered. Everyone could use an extra smile or two right now and no band in music makes fans happier than BTS.
Jimmy Fallon and BTS share a common message of positivity. Fallon has stated in the past that his goal is to make guests as comfortable as possible and let them shine. It is clear that he has excellent chemistry with the band which only made their Feb. 24 appearance that much more successful.
And successful it was. The band’s visit to the show was the year’s most talked-about entertainment event on social media. According to NBC, the episode earned 4.2 million interactions across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The BTS Army is unlike any other fanbase when it comes to sharing the band’s content and accomplishments on social media while adding in their own encouragement.
There was a lot of love going around when BTS and The Tonight Show got together. The band was very happy for the opportunity and to tour New York City with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon expressed his gratitude to the band and the fans who made the show so popular. And of course the fans themselves were ecstatic to see BTS in the spotlight from the premier late night show.
