BTS perform on Saturday Night Live

BTS performed their new song Boy With Luv and the famous Mic Drop. They're the first Asian artists to perform on the show.

They did so well!!! Performing Boy With Luv with a live band was a good idea

Took me forever to be able to watch both full performances in HD. Stupid SNL being blocked in my country /shakes fist.gif

They did really well on these two songs. They looked really hot and happy to perform which is always a plus. The band in BWL was a nice touch (though I'm not a fan of some of these arrangements) and Mic Drop was bomb. I'll never get tired of that dance break at the end.

Call me biased but Jungkook definitely stole the show tonight. His stage presence is no joke and he was super stable throughout both songs. I'm a proud mama bear.

They did so well, I'm so happy and proud. And they've been so well-received.

My wish had always been to see them perform Mic Drop on American TV so this was a very nice surprise.

I'm not sure what they did with the audio in the YouTube videos - it sounded muted and slightly off from the clips I watched on Twitter, probably to dim down the sound of the audience - but regardless, they sounded tired. All of vocal line sounded strained at one point or another, or on the verge of just letting it hang lol, except maybe Jeongguk. But in everything else i.e. the dancing and audience engagement they really brought it. They are happy to be there and it shows.

Good for them, what an accomplishment. I'm curious if anyone has the ratings to know how many people tuned in.

I'm just a casual listener of BTS but like. That new song is no good the dance is boring and the song is boring lol. I like Mic Drop enough but every time I see the outfits.....ew. Still sad that it's unlikely they'll ever perform Blood Sweat and Tears at any of these TV shows

I also thought the dance was boring until i saw this tweet: https://twitter.com/v_in_love_/status/1117099496100352002?s=21

I'm glad they went for Mic Drop because it does seem to appeal to the US audience the most, esp. after cheesy BWL. But why not in the suits like the MAMA performance oh why oh why. That was the hottest performance ever.

Jin's, Jimin's and V's vocals, well... But Jungkook is a god. And recently I've also found out that people were actually campaigning for J-Hope to be left out or something? With that kind of stage presence?
What was the deal with Jin skipping lines? Could it have been intentional? idgi

if anyone knows about the ratings and the comments they received please let us know, I'm truly curious

Whaaaaat? Why? How? He's the best of the seven at doing lives, his delivery is always so clear and stable. And his dancing and stage presence....

It's still so surreal to see them doing things like this! I thoroughly enjoyed the performances!
negativesunset 14th-Apr-2019 01:14 pm (UTC)
i actually enjoyed both performances, mic drop more so because i like the energy especially the dance break with jhope-jungkook-v on the front~

hobi and jungkook did amazing on both songs; taehyung sounds muted on his parts in boy with luv, i prefer him in mic drop simply because i heard him there better, i also prefer yoongi in mic drop simply because i really don't like his verse in bwl ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and did jin forgot to sing the beginning of his first 2 lines in mic drop or was that on purpose? strange decision if it was...

anyway, they all looked like they had fun while performing so i'm happy for them

pretty sure Jin didn't want to sing those lines, he has trouble with switching, which the part requires. He never did that Fake love part either.

they looked like they had fun, true! they're cute.

They did SO good!

I had some anxiety...won't lie, but their joy really is contagious. Impressed!

Love them!

My sons did that

I only watched Mic Drop and they danced their butts off. Everyone looked confident and energetic. Very pleased with the performance. I love me a choreographed dancing boy band.

They did great!! And they looked so happy, I'm so pleased for them. It was also a breather to have a great performance without fanchants lmao.

I'm glad they didn't make a sketch. Except for the cold open, this episode was terrible. My whole Twitter was like "what we endure for BTS" and it's true.

It was SO bad. I haven't watched a full SNL episode in ages but I swear even a year ago it wasn't this bad and there were at least some good sketches each show. That Ladies' Room sketch...oh my god...why. What was even the point. They should have made more of an effort knowing how many people would be tuning in just for BTS.

they were so good. so proud.
lydzi 14th-Apr-2019 01:54 pm (UTC)
They looked absolutely great and I actually enjoyed a LOT MORE this than listening for the first time the song so there it is.

Mic Drop is an anthem. I'll never get bored of it XD the energy thedance the charisma, it's all there. Haters gonna hate :3

Except for JK, bless his heart, vocal-line sounds bad, as expected. Did Jin forget his lines? He sounded even more nasal than usual in here. Tae was barely audible and had little to no control of his voice. And Jimin... well. Wailing galore.

Hoseok was great! JK and Hobi remain BTS' best live performers wbk.

BWL is such a basic and boring song. The choreo isn't interesting either so it adds absolutely nothing to lift the song. They should've chosen better suits as well, these look ill-fitted.

Mic Drop was a much better performance but their outfits were hideous. BTS needs to change their stylists asap.
mallmouse 14th-Apr-2019 02:03 pm (UTC)
They should have just gone for suits. Mic Drop in suits is a blessing
I wonder if Spring Day would have been received better by the audience. I think it has a more international appeal
