Jimmy Fallon will be hosting a special The Tonight Show episode devoted to the South Korean boy band, BTS. The Monday, February 24, 2020 special telecast will include interviews and a performance by the band. Plus, BTS will join Fallon for a trip around New York City.
“We wanted to do something special for BTS and, at the same time, celebrate New York City. BTS really knocked it out of the park. You’re not going to believe how big and fun their performance is,” said Jimmy Fallon. “They took over Grand Central Terminal. It’s BTS on NBC from NYC at GCT…wait, this is getting weird, isn’t it? Just watch the show on Monday, Feb. 24.”
Fallon announced the special episode on February 6th and asked fans of the popular band to send in questions. In response to the request, #FallonAsksBTS trended at #1 worldwide.
