A big announcement was made during the show too: BTS will be performing "Boy With Luv" at the Billboard Music Awards on May 1, with Halsey! Following the album's success, the seven-member boy band began making more worldwide appearances, with interviews on both "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show".

The group's first performance was "Boy with Luv", a single off their just-released new album "Map of the Soul: Persona", which has already become a fan favorite track off the project, racking up over 107 million views so far, and breaking YouTube's record for the most views in 24 hours.

What did you think of BTS' performance on SNL? Though several members of the group were still clad in chunky white sneakers, they ditched their suits for loose-fitting trousers and baggy jackets - going for more of a hip-hop vibe.

This week has been sensational for BTS: the band broke YouTube's one-day viewing record, notching 78 million views for their collaboration with Halsey and 2 million comments.
