Billboard Music Awards: BTS’ Jungkook and his purple hair trends

BTS’s Jungkook was trending in all his purple-haired glory following the group’s dazzling performance of Butter at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.

The seven-piece – also made up of RM, Jimin, Jin, J-Hope, Suga and V – took to the stage to perform their latest banger for the first time live and, well, much as we expected, they absolutely brought it.

Can you say superstar glow?

However, in between the dance moves, the eyebrow raises and the charm, Army absolutely lost it by Jungkook’s presence, just days after we were left gasping by his (albeit fake) eyebrow piercing for the Butter MV.

The performance – which was recorded from Seoul – took us through BTS’ backstage dressing room and onto a red carpet fitted for the awards, as Jungkook opened the clip.

Joining the rest of the group, BTS – who’d already won awards before the ceremony had begun – went on to slay from a massive stage, with the chart-toppers showing off their impressive moves in front of a glittering globe.

And judging by the sheer amount of tweets directed at Jungkook, his performance was on point with many dubbing it the ‘highlight’ of an already-flawless display.

One excited fan noted: ‘Just watched the BTS billboard perfo & Jungkook’s dance break was the freaking highlight. Ok he stole the show he looked so hot, his vocals were on point, his dance moves were just so smooth, his facial expressions and smirk.. Too much self confidence man.’

Others wondered whether the intro, which saw Jungkook peer at himself in a mirror, illustrated the shift from the Dynamite era to that of Butter.

One mused: ‘Have you noticed? dynamite is faintly playing in the background and jungkook changes from the denim jacket to the black suit! it’s the end of the dynamite era and the beginning of the butter era! [sic].’

And one perhaps needed a little fresh air: ‘The indigo purple hair jungkook is just sending me into orbit. i’m just a shell of my former self. i’m just not here [sic].’

thinking abt airplane pt2 and my time you know when Jungkook goes power walking it means he knows that hes going to SLAY and he never fails. Like more than anything his confidence and stage presence is so damn attractive

i’ve been trying to figure out the right words to try to describe jungkook’s attractive walk. he walks like he’s a model on a runway or a character in a video game walking up to the final boss knowing he’s going to win.
