BTS X THE LATE LATE SHOW'S CROSSWALK CONCERT
The biggest boyband in the world performs in front of your car.
The most famous Korean boyband in the world, BTS, is back in Los Angeles to perform their first four-day offline concert at SoFi Stadium after two years of not being able to perform in person due to the pandemic. Along the way, The Late Late Show with James Corden got the chance to have them in the well-known crosswalk concert.
After winning multiple categories at the American Music Awards or AMAs, including the main award, Artist of the Year, and being nominated for the second time as Best Pop/Duo Group Performance at the Grammys, BTS got an invitation from The Late Late Show with James Corden to do interview, performance, 1000th episode celebration, and of course, crosswalk concert.

The interview and a special performance took place on November 23, 2021. ARMYs must've already known about the "hot water" RM is talking about at the beginning of the interview. However, due to BTS' humbleness, they are quick to forgive, despite James not apologizing. They moved on with the interview and wrapped it up with a special "Permission to Dance" performance, one of their latest songs.
They didn't stop there because they also performed their hit song "Butter" to celebrate the show's 1000th episode.
Later, James Corden announced that BTS would also be performing at their crosswalk concert. The recording happened on Tuesday and was just at the intersection in front of The Late Late Show's building. BTS will perform three of their megahit songs, "Dynamite", "Butter", and "Permission to Dance", and they will be released on December 16 at 12:37 a.m. EST/PST on CBS. The episode will later be uploaded to The Late Late Show with James Corden's official YouTube channel.

Imagine you're just casually out for lunch break and got caught up in red light, then you see a free performance from the biggest act right in front of your car, couldn't be luckier.
When the recording was in progress, there were a lot of ARMYs and locals who happened to be there, and they started filming them and sharing the "spoiler" on social media, mainly on Twitter. People were actually got caught up with their impressive performance.
From James Corden's sneak peek on Twitter, BTS is wearing their slick black and yellow suits for their "Butter" performance in front of a huge "B-U-T-T-E-R" sign. There are huge pans and some backup dancers with a pancake costume with butter on top of it. While in their "Dynamite" performance, they're wearing fancy colorful suits with firework decors. They are also performing their latest song, "Permission to Dance", with their iconic denim outfits and cowboy-like backdrops across the intersection.
ARMYs already trended #BTSCrosswalk with 228k tweets (and rising) on Twitter prior to the show being released.
BTS is a South Korean boyband consisting of 7 members, RM, Jin, SUGA, J-HOPE, Jimin, V, and Jungkook (according to their fanchant order). They are known for their vast discographies, heartfelt songs, deep lyrics, catchy music, and modesty. Their fans or the BTS ARMY consist of both men and women from a wide range of backgrounds.
They are ambassadors for many massive brands, starting from McDonald's, Louis Vuitton, Fila, Samsung, Hyundai, Tokopedia, and many more. The band promoting brands (and ARMYs love for the boys) make it easier for those brands to sell out things in a matter of minutes.
