The British group included a link to the special, writing “beautiful” in Korean and “Love” in English, along with the bandmembers’ individual initials.
The half-hour performance was filmed on five different sets, each one matching the mood of each song, from an arcade to an indoor field and a retro living room. Along with acoustic versions of songs from Be, RM, Jimin, Jin, Suga, Jungkook, V and J-Hope slipped in the surprise Coldplay cover as a treat for their American viewers.
Singing in English while seated on stools, Jimin shared that they chose “Fix You” because it “gave us comfort, so we wanted to prepare this cover to comfort you as well.”
The five-song set also included the first live performance of “Telepathy,” as well as another live premiere of “Blue & Grey” and then “Life Goes On” and the show-stopping closer “Dynamite.”
