BTS Confirmed to Perform on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Amid rumors of BTS making appearances on TRL and The Ellen Show, the K-pop superstars have been confirmed to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The group will make the stop while they are in America to perform at the American Music Awards, which will be filmed nearby at the Microsoft Theater on Nov. 19.

Tickets have already run out on ticketing site 1iota, which states that the performance will take place in Los Angeles on Nov. 15 at the show’s outdoor stage.

This isn’t the first time a late-night host highlighted K-pop acts. In 2012, Girls' Generation made their U.S. debut on The Late Show with David Letterman, performing "The Boys." Psy, a fluent English speaker, also made the rounds on American talk shows to promote his single with Snoop Dogg, “Hangover,” which peaked at No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In addition, last year, Conan O’Brien partnered up with Korean-American actor Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) for a special “Conan in Korea” episode, which culminated in a psychedelic collaboration with JYP Entertainment head Park Jin-young, posted on Team Coco’s YouTube channel. The music video featured familiar faces within the K-pop sphere, including TwiceWonder Girls and cardboard cutouts of GOT7.
