On Monday’s show, Fallon opened the episode with his typical monologue and a skit, before band members RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook appeared for the first time in a colorful clip of them singing “Dynamite” —remotely, due to the coronavirus — along with Fallon and The Roots, the show’s band.
The show closed with a performance of the group’s 2018 hit “IDOL,” a song from the album “Love Yourself: Answer.” The prerecorded live footage showed the boys wearing modernized, all-black takes on traditional Korean hanbok dancing in front of Geunjeongjeon Hall of the Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul against a backdrop of blue spotlights and a huge harvest moon.
For BTS's second night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Idols performed a cool blue-toned, pajama-clad version of Map of the Soul: Persona track “HOME."
In addition to their performance of “HOME,” the night featured an interview with noted BTS fan John Cena, who is beloved by ARMYs for the way he speaks about the power of BTS.
On Wednesday, the BTS performed their single “Black Swan” for Night 3 of their “Tonight Show” takeover.
Along with the performance, BTS shared details of their upcoming album BE (Deluxe Edition), their reaction to “Dynamite” going to No. 1 on the charts, and their aspiration to win a Grammy.
Finally, Fallon and BTS played a game of “Dance Your Feelings”, in which they faced off against each other to see who could best express randomly suggested feelings through dance.
On Thursday night, the K-pop Idols, BTS took over “The Tonight Show” once again to perform their hit “Mikrokosmos”. The group performed the song remotely, from inside a traditional temple by the water at night.
BTS also took part in a game of “Zoom Olympics” with Jimmy Fallon in which they attempted to perform a number of challenges over zoom. For example, in the “Groundhog Challenge”, each person had to pop their head in and out of the camera frame as many times as possible to be declared the winner. In another challenge, players faced off by trying to place as many TV remote controls on top of each other on the palms of their hands as they could before it all toppled over.
Friday night wraps up the week with BTS performing "Dynamite"!
