BTS made their much anticipated debut on NPR’s Tiny Desk (home) concert and did not disappoint.
Having wowed audiences with their bombastic performance of ‘Dynamite’ on America’s Got Talent, BTS went in the other direction for their appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk (home) concert.
BTS slowed things down a bit for NPR as each of the group’s seven members opted to sit on stools for the entire three-song performance, which took place in the VINYL & PLASTIC by Hyundai Card record store in Seoul.
Unsurprisingly, they still slayed.
Rocking some stylish bellbottoms and orange blazers, the boys kicked things off with a performance of ‘Dynamite’, which was notable for being the first time the group performed the hit song with a live band.
Next was a trip down memory lane as BTS dusted off their 2016 banger, ‘Save Me’. While the concert’s format called for no choreography, J-Hope, V and Jimin danced away anyway despite the lack of space.
Jimin noted during the song that “it reminds [him] of when [the group] were on tour with the band.”
BTS then capped off their mini concert with their 2017 power ballad ‘Spring Day’, which the group dedicated to all those who have had a rough few months.

According to NPR, BTS broke the series record for the most YouTube views on its first day – which only took about 25 minutes.
At the time of writing, the group’s Tiny Desk concert is sitting at a smidge under 4 million views on YouTube and is only going to increase much higher over the coming days.
That’s pretty ‘Dynamite’ stuff from BTS.
