BLACKPINK are looking set for global denomination in 2019 – and their US TV debut is only going to add to their clout.
The four-piece girlband performed for the first time on US television last night as they appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The K-pop stars performed their hit song Ddu-Du Ddu-Ddu, which became the most watched video from a K-pop girlband on YouTube this year.
And despite being in a TV studio, there was no scrimping on the choreography, as Jennie, Rose, Lisa and Jisoo impressed with their slick moves teamed with on point vocals and raps.
As Colbert was airing, the hashtag #BLACKPINKonLSSC began trending worldwide as fans awaited the girls’ long awaited debut.
Stephen Colbert introduced the band by holding up their EP Square Up and saying: ‘Our guests are a wildly popular K-pop group who announced their first US tour today and are making their American television debut tonight.’
And The Late Show outed themselves as BLINKs following the performance, tweeting: ‘This is now a BLACKPINK stan account.’
BLACKPINK are the second K-pop girl group to appear on late night US television, after Girls’ Generation performed on The Late Show, then hosted by David Letterman, back in 2012.
The Whistle singers confirmed that their 2019 In Your Area world tour will include North American dates – including their two dates at Coachella, which make them the first K-pop girlband to perform on the bill of the Indio festival.
Luckily, European BLINKs will have their chance to see the girls too – BLACKPINK are playing Manchester Arena on 21 May, following by the SSE Arena, Wembley in London the next day.
BLACKPINK will make their daytime US TV debut today on Good Morning America.
