In a promo video for BTS’ performance, Banks introduces the Korean group’s upcoming appearance on AGT, then joining them for a little movin’. “Let’s get our ‘Idol’ dance on,” she declares before singing a snippet of BTS’ August-released single, which went to No. 11 on the Hot 100 chart dated Sept. 8. This isn’t the first time Banks has hung out with BTS — the former model met the group at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this year, and expressed love for their new album upon its release.
“Idol” is the lead song off of BTS’ chart-topping Love Yourself: Answer album, which they released on Aug. 24. Along with the version featuring the group, BTS also released a new version of “Idol” featuring Nicki Minaj as well as a second music video for the song featuring the Queen rapper last week.
America’s Got Talent marks the first televised prime-time appearance from BTS during their recent trip Stateside for their Love Yourself World Tour. They kicked off the local leg of the concert series in Los Angeles on Sept. 5 and will conclude in New York City at Citi Field on Oct. 6 after multiple stops throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The septet will perform on tonight’s AGT show, which airs at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
