BTS is proving why they're a global phenomenon.

The K-pop group started off their 2022 Grammys performance of "Butter" with a truly impressive opener that saw Jungkook descend from the MGM Grand Garden Arena ceiling. Then, the rest of the group—J-Hope, RM, Suga, Jin, and Park Ji-min—slowly appeared throughout the audience, with V cozying up to pop star Olivia Rodrigo. The duo inspired jealousy in many Grammy viewers when V slyly whispered in the Disney Channel star's ear and produced a card with the precision of a magician.

After wooing the audience, the guys expertly sang and sashayed on stage before breaking out into a James Bond-like dance number that included lasers and a crew of backup dancers. As they rounded out their performance, they moved into the audience and danced alongside attendees, who gave the boys a well-deserved standing ovation.

It's safe to say the boys gained even more fans than they already had with that show-stopping performance.

The 2021 Grammys also marked BTS' performance from Korea, but this year saw the group perform live in front of a Grammys audience, a monumental moment for the fan-favorite musicians. And the good news is Jungkook was able to take part in the show as he recently made a full recovery from COVID-19. According to Billboard, Big Hit Music announced on WeVerse, "During quarantine, he developed a mild sore throat, but has recovered."
