V, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, Jin, RM (Rap Monster) and J-Hope took to the stage in their denim looks — including harnesses! — to impress their screaming, crying fans who traveled from all parts of the world to see them perform. To announce the performance, host Kelly Clarkson first put on a pair of pink headphones to block out the undying screams from the crowd.

The performance comes nearly one year after the seven members made their American stage debut at the 2017 American Music Awards.
