To close out the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival on Friday (September 18), BTS delivered a high-energy set right from Korea and it was indeed full of dynamite.
After introduction from Elvis Duran in New York City, the K-Pop sensation performed a tight five-song set that saw RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook offer some of their biggest hits, fancy footwork, colorful sets from a sound studio in Korea.
Kicking things off with their latest hit, "Dynamite," the septet appeared on a street that nodded to the disco inspiration on the track. In blazers, shirts and dress pants, the group's synergy remained their biggest allure, rocking the sound studio as if it was filled with their adoring ARMY. On that very same set, the group transitioned into "Make It Right" without Lauv, before walking onto a brand-new backdrop of an oversized boombox with accompanying LED screens. Courtesy of some post-production magic, the acts doubled in appearance as their set rotated on the stage to unveil the group donning white outfits for "Spring Day." For their closing number, the group unveiled new outfits and (another new) shimmery florescent set.
Prior to their performance, the group spoke with KIIS FM’s JoJo Wright and their performance, admitting that they were excited about the set, but itching to perform for their ARMY. "We should be there, ya know, to perform with the real people and real audience," RM explained, adding, "That’s what makes us sad but we still are going to do our best."
In case you missed it, or just want to re-live all of the epic performances from this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival, tune in to the two-night highlights special on The CW on September 27 and 28 from 8-10pm ET/PT.
