BTS takes over crosswalk in LA for live performances of hit songs GMA News Online
BTS marked their return to “The Late Late Show with James Corden” by taking control of a crosswalk in Los Angeles with live performances of their hit songs.
The Crosswalk Concert is a well-known segment of the show where stars suddenly appear in front of cars when the brake light turns red. The red light only lasts 30 seconds.
Just seconds before the light turns green again, the stars and crew must run as fast as possible along the side of the road with their accessories and gear. How did BTS do it?
Pretty good, apparently, but still hilarious.
In the video, all seven of the Grammy-nominated group could be seen wearing yellow and black costumes for “Butter”. Even with some cars honking, they delivered a smooth performance.
RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook then return to the crosswalk in cowboy-themed denim outfits for their feel-good song “Permission to Dance”. Even the passengers of some cars were dancing with them!
Of course, their gig wouldn’t be complete without their groundbreaking hit song “Dynamite”. Dressed in blazers of different colors, BTS splashed color on the streets with their rocking performances.
Last month, BTS won their second Grammy nomination for Best Pop Duo or Group Performance with “Butter”.
Last year, their single “Dynamite” was nominated for Best Pop Group Performance, but lost to “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.
“Butter,” released in May, achieved an impressive feat on the music charts. One of his accomplishments was to stay atop the Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks, with the streak stopping to give way to BTS’s other single “Permission to Dance”. —Franchesca Viernes / JCB, GMA News
