BTS officially made its American television debut with a big performance of “DNA” at the 2017 American Music Awards. The boy band has been leading a massive K-Pop invasion and the members are in awe of the success they deem miraculous.
“We’ve never dreamed of such kind of fame before. All we dreamed of was like performing in front of 10,000 people. That was our final dream. Tonight we’re going to perform in front of millions of people via television,” BTS member Kim Nam-joon told Billboard ahead of the performance. “It’s a miracle.”
Miracle or not, BTS making history as the first K-Pop group to perform at the AMAs proves that the boy band is sticking around. The international recognition is also now opening doors for potential collaborations and BTS has its sights set on Zedd.
“We want Zedd,” the group said in unison. “We love Zedd.”
The DJ isn’t the only one BTS is eyeballing, either. The pre-show interview included a nice shoutout to the band’s love for Camila Cabello, particularly her song “Havana.” BTS covered a few bars of the song before entering the award show for the big performance.
A previously filmed gig on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and a stint on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” are next in line for the K-Pop sensations. While stateside, the group will also appear on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”
