It seems like just yesterday that BTS was making history on the Billboard stage, and these K-pop trailblazers are here to tear up the American music scene yet again. Between joining forces with Desiigner for an epic remix of ‘MIC Drop’ and gearing up for their performance debut at the 2017 American Music Awards, the Korean supergroup has also received a love call from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, with executive producer Andy Lassner reassuring that “it’s gonna happen” (inserts jungshook.jpg). Still don’t believe us?

Well, the queen has spoken. Whether or not BTS will make an appearance is still up in the air, but it’s never too early to start hyping up our favourite boys. Here are 6 ARMY-approved things we would totally love to see on the show – dance-offs, scare pranks and all.
#1 Bringing the DNA from the AMAs
So i made an edit of bts on Ellen DeGeneres’ show

While we couldn’t be more psyched to watch the boys perform their latest smash hit at the AMAs, just imagine how lit their entrance segment would be if BTS kicked off the show with ‘DNA’. We can already see Ellen breaking out into the full routine and J-Hope challenging Ellen to a dance-off. Hey dance line, looks like you’ve got competition!
#2 Ellen taking on the Go Go Challenge
Omg can you see Ellen doing the Go Go dance!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/VLMObklJmG

With EXO spawning a series of viral challenges (#KokobopChallenge anybody?), the BTS-inspired Go Go Challenge is the latest trend to blow up over the Internet – and who better to slay the moves of ‘Go Go’ than the one and only Ellen? Eighth member of BTS, confirmed.

#3 What’s Ellen without pulling a prank or two?
if bts on ellen is really gonna happen imagine ellen pulling a scare prank and 2seok getting scared af lmao

Y’all might be familiar with Ellen’s penchant for scaring the pants off her guests – not even Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and David Beckham were spared – so there’s a good chance that BTS will likely become the newest victims of her masterful pranks. We don’t know about you, but we’re particularly looking forward to Jin and J-Hope reactions. Get ready for the memes!
#4 When Mr. Worldwide Handsome strikes
I honestly can’t wait to see ellen’s reaction when jin flies a kiss to her saying “yeah you’re genius you’re angel I’m handsome” #ARMYxAMAs

Should we expect anything less when Jin is basically a kiss-blowing emoji come to life? Dude’s worldwide handsome, after all. Let’s just hope Ellen can survive his endless bombardment of winks, finger hearts and dad jokes…
#5 Suga busting out Shakespeare-esque English
[bts on ellen]
namjoon: yeah i’m the only one who can speak english fluently so y-
yoongi: mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell

As Rap Monster is the sole member fluent in the language, the pressure is no doubt on the leader to take charge of the conversation and sometimes act as the translator, so we do hope there will be an interpreter onsite to help the poor guy out. All seriousness aside, the other members aren’t so shabby at the language themselves (we’re counting on you, Suga)!
#6 Powerful people supporting each other!
omg i just realized if bts do go on ellen and she finds out about UNICEF chances are she’s going to donate to their campaign pic.twitter.com/SdNd8N3lOJ

As if we needed more reason to love BTS, they’ve partnered up with UNICEF on the #ENDviolence campaign to commemorate their latest album Love Yourself: Her. With Ellen being a huge advocate of human rights herself, it’s a great opportunity to raise awareness about the cause and cement themselves as a socially-conscious K-pop act. To the world and beyond!
What else do you hope to see if BTS x The Ellen happens? Fire away in the comments box below, ARMYs!
