BTS‘s V finally got to meet Jon Batiste in real life, and fans are living for their interactions!
In March, Jon Batiste praised V and the other BTS members’ musical talents during a #GRAMMYsAsk interview on Twitter. He also revealed that he had been in contact with V, and his kind words made fans wonder if the two would be collaborating on V’s highly anticipated solo mixtape.

Later, Jon Batiste praised V’s airport fashion and his behavior toward reporters who were at the airport when he, RM, Jin, Suga, and Jimin were departing for the 64th GRAMMY Awards (also known as the 2022 GRAMMYs). He replied to many of ARMY’s tweets about how great V looked and how kind he was.
