The American talent show competition, America’s Got Talent, is now on the semifinals round of its Season 13 edition and airs on NBC.
The announcement for the appearance of BTS on America’s Got Talent made everyone of the BTS Army (the collective name for BTS fans) excited.
Before the announcement though, the current AGT host, American TV producer and former model Tyra Banks (age 44), already gave a hint on Twitter about BTS as special guest on America’s Got Talent 2018.
Tyra Banks tweeted: “I’m not giving up, so I need some help from the #BTSarmy (BTS Army)! Retweet so we can get #BTSonAGT (BTS on AGT)! @BTS_twt @agt!”
