Season 16 of the reality talent competition show America’s Got Talent on NBC has been quite eventful so far. We’ve seen amazing acts from South Korea, such as Korean Soul and the World Taekwondo Demonstration Team, which also consists of persons worldwide.
Now, some of our favorite K-Pop artists are making their way on the show. Last year, BTS made a special appearance, performing their song “Dynamite” on the show. This season, contestants are using the group’s music to audition.
Recently, three life-sized teddy bears confused the judges, especially since the bears were not responding to any questions. Teddy bears aren’t supposed to talk?
Actress Sofía Vergara couldn’t even tell if they were supposed to be bears or not. But, all of the judges could agree that whatever they were, they were quite cute!
Since they weren’t ones for small talk, Simon Cowell gave them the go-ahead to start their audition shortly after their walk onto the stage. To everyone’s surprise, BTS’s “Butter” started playing, and the bears began dancing.
While not the official choreography, everyone was still impressed (and amused) by the bears’ moves. It was enough to get even a “yes” from Cowell and make it to the next round on the show!
The bears are actually quite famous in their own right and known for their fun original choreographies. Their fans have known them as the Charming Bears on social media apps TikTok and Instagram as they post a variety of content, from funny videos to their dances to pop songs. On TikTok alone, they have one 1 million followers!
They previously shared on Instagram with their followers that they were unsure if their audition would even be aired. Luckily, about a minute made the cut!
We’re thrilled to announce that we auditioned for @AGT! We’re not 100% sure that our audition will be aired but if it does I will be sure to let you all know!!

It also reminded ARMYs of some of the fandom’s own edits that imagined what would happen perhaps in an alternate reality if BTS auditioned for America’s Got Talent.
Remind me if this funny edit 😂😂😂😂 https://t.co/L9MpgEMwBR
