Following BTS' mind-blowing performance at the Melon Music Awards on Nov. 30, BTS continues their impressive streak of epic, end-of-year performances at this year's MAMAs. The video of BTS' 2019 MAMAs performance shows the guys push themselves creatively with every showcase, and the BTS ARMY continues to be impressed by their efforts.
Ahead of their MAMAs appearance, BTS gave fans clues about their performance in a Dec. 2 video posted on the show's official Twitter account. When Jimin asked the members where they would like to go for this year's MAMAs, V, Jungkook, and Jin offered different ideas, like space or time-traveling to the future. Meanwhile, Jungkook expressed his wish to "travel randomly" with "130911 as a coordinate."
The BTS ARMY immediately went into full detective mode to decipher what the clues could possibly mean. The "130911" hint had fans convinced BTS would perform "N.O" from their O!RUL8,2? album, since it released on Sept. 11, 2013. Fans also guessed BTS was hinting at a performance of either "Mikrokosmos," "Heartbeat," or "134340," because of the "space" clue.
Previously, BTS performed "Mikrokosmos" at the 2019 MMAs, and, sure enough, the guys made the stage look like they were singing in the middle of space, so "Mikrokosmos" was a smart guess.
Well, the performance has come and gone, and it definitely did not disappoint. The boys took things way back when they performed a medley of their throwback debut tracks "N.O" and "We Are Bulletproof Pt.2," and their 2019-era bops "Boy With Luv," "Mikrokosmos," and "Dionysus."
BTS’ high-energy performance completely stole the show and had the crowd on their feet. Fans at home were equally as engaged, and took to Twitter to share their excitement.
Their epic performance wasn’t the only time the boys took the stage on Wednesday night, either. BTS swept every single award they were nominated for at the MAMAs, including: Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Dance Performance Male Group, Best Male Group, Qoo10 Favourite Male Artist, Worldwide Icon of the Year, Worldwide Fans' Choice Top 10, Best Collaboration, and Best Music Video.
After a huge night, ARMYs are even more excited for BTS' new musical era. While fans anxiously await new tunes, their debut tracks will be on repeat thanks to their MAMAs performance.
