'BTS' Performed On Stephen Colbert With Inspo From 'The Beatles,' And It Is Everything

I love many things in this world, but music is definitely at the top of my list. As a fan of both The Beatles and BTS, I freaked out when I saw this crossover on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert".

After The Beatles made their American television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show," history was made. Colbert used this as inspiration for BTS's appearance, and it is something I didn't know I needed until I saw it.

The show began with a cold open of Colbert as Sullivan, who then let each member introduce themselves. From RM to Jungkook, each introduction was unique and allowed for all seven of them to shine.

This Colbert segment was nearly identical to the original segment on the Ed Sullivan's show. However, this isn't BTS's first performance broadcasted in America; their debut came in 2017 at the American Music Awards, but it was their first time on Colbert's show.

BTS-Mania At The Ed Sullivan

Stephen Colbert dressed up like Ed Sullivan while all seven of the members of BTS wore black suits. Their performance of "Boy With Luv", from their recent album, "Map of the Soul: Persona", was shown in black and white. In the background also sat a drum set like Ringo's, with BTS written in the iconic Beatles font.

As a fan of BTS, I have watched them perform "Boy With Luv" in their music video, on multiple late night shows, and on various South Korean music programs, such as M Countdown. Even though BTS's vocals and dancing are the same in each performance, Colbert's comparison of them to The Beatles' American debut was new and fun to watch.

With all their songs, I recommend that after listening, you go back and look up the English translation of the lyrics. Along with being incredibly catchy, the song tells how love is a strong force. The Korean title of the song, "작은 것들을 위한 시" translates to "Poems For Small Things" which explains the emotions within its lyrics.

I highly suggest watching this BTS performance on Stephen Colbert, as well as checking out their many others!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
