BTS is on SNL -- and making history! 

RM, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, J-Hope, Suga and V have officially made their Saturday Night Live debut, becoming the first K-pop musical guest on Saturday Night Live in the show's 44 seasons. Psy was the last K-pop act to appear on the comedy series, with a cameo in a sketch in September 2012, with Bobby Moynihan, who impersonated him. 

BTS took the stage on Saturday night's Emma Stone-hosted episode to perform their song, "Boy With Luv," their new collaboration with Halsey, although the songstress didn't make an appearance herself.

The guys, of course, sported perfectly coordinated looks for the appearance, which came just one day after releasing their new album, Map of the Soul: Persona. 

Rocking black suits and white sneakers, the boys proved exactly why they have taken the world by storm with their flawless performance.

ARMY had camped out for days at 30 Rock ahead of BTS' performance, in the hopes of getting a glimpse at the band, who told ET in February that they were hard at work on new music for their fans. 

"We stayed up all night to work for our next album," RM told ET at the 2019 GRAMMYs. "Right before the flight, we stayed up all night."

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/ 8:30 p.m. PT on NBC. See more on BTS in the video below.
