The seven-member group performed on the heels of the release of their highly-anticipated album, Map of the Soul: Persona.
Fans have been camping out at 30 Rock, trying to score tickets to the show, according to Billboard; the BTS fandom, aka the ARMY, is no joke. Host Emma Stone and the women of SNL alluded to BTS-mania in a teaser for the episode.
And of course, Twitter nearly exploded.
@Googyfluf “CANT STOP SCREAMING ABOUT BTS PERFORMANCE ON SNL.”
“Believe the hype people,” said @DJMikeAllan.
People were absolutely living for Jimin.
@Min_nnchi tweeted, “god…just look at this man.”
@SPICYMYG wrote, “Locals asking who the boy with the pink hair is and the boy with the blue hair is made my night,” referring to people who weren’t hip to the BTS craze before Saturday night.
