ARMYs anticipated a next-level performance at the 2022 GRAMMYs, and BTS did not disappoint! They went above and beyond expectations while putting a new twist on “Butter.” Here are 10 details you might have missed during the show!
1. BTS are art thieves. “Butter” is their heist.
See those paintings in the background? These smooth criminals make them disappear one by one as they dance…
…and later replace those artworks with their own.
2. The lyrics
After stealing the paintings, BTS vandalized the gallery walls with lyrics from their past hits, including “FIRE” and “DOPE.”
3. The statues
If you’re getting “Dionysus” vibes from the statues in BTS’s gallery, you’re not alone! “Dionysus” could very well be one of the past works BTS referenced during their performance.
4. BTS’s tag
Who pulled off this historic heist? BTS boldly credited themselves. “BTS” can be seen spray-painted over the lyrics.
5. Jungkook’s photo
BTS took us back to 2015 with behind-the-scenes photos from their “I NEED U” sketch. In one frame, Jungkook sits alone in a back alley.
6. Jimin’s photo
Here, Jimin burns a page while sitting in the bathtub from “I NEED U” MV.
7. RM’s photo
This photo of RM walking down train tracks is also from the “I NEED U” photo sketch.
8. Jin & Suga’s photos
Suga appears surrounded by flames in his “I NEED U” hotel set.
The photo on the left could possibly be a photo of Jin peering out a window. He does in several music videos, including “I NEED U.”
9. This silhouette
Although it’s difficult to make out, this photo might also be a moment from BTS’s “I NEED U” photo sketch.
10. Concert photos
In addition to their HYYH-era photos, BTS also included photos from their past concerts and tours. Hopefully, BigHit Music will upload a high-quality video of BTS’s performance so we can take a closer look!
