Tonight, the biggest band in the world comes to the biggest late night TV show. BTS returns to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for a special performance on Tuesday night.

It has been an important week in the K-pop band’s history. On May 21, BTS released its new single “Butter.” It marks the band’s second English-language song following the wildly successful “Dynamite.”

Anytime BTS has a new song to promote, late night TV has been more than willing to spotlight the band. No band had a bigger year on late night TV in 2020 than BTS. Now, nearly halfway through 2021, the band is back and ready to make a splash.

The Late Show with Stephen has developed a strong relationship with the band. The BTS Army surely recalls the Beatles treatment Stephen Colbert gave the band when it was in the Ed Sullivan Theater.

And while the pandemic means that BTS — V, Suga, Jin, RM, Jimin, Jungkook, and J-Hope — won’t be in studio for The Late Show, a top-notch performance is still guaranteed no matter where it takes place. Expect the already highly rated Late Show to get a boost in ratings as ARMY tunes in to see their favorite band perform.
