BTS Covers Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ On ‘MTV Unplugged’

BTS were part of TV history this week when they became the first Korean act to perform on MTV Unplugged, the storied home of some of the best, stripped-down performances of the Millennial age.

The septet broke out some never-before-heard versions of their hits, debuted songs from their new album BE, and even covered Coldplay. “It’s really an honor to be a part of the MTV Unplugged legacy, where so many legends have performed,” leader RM said at the opening. “We’re definitely thankful, honored we got to be a part of this.”

The special, which jumped from performances on ever-changing sets to intimate conversations within the group, kicked off with their first-ever televised performance of “Telepathy,” the lead single from BE. The group then moved over to a concrete garden stage to sing the emotional ballad “Blue & Grey” and ending the televised show with a rousing rendition of their #1 hit “Dynamite.”

Most interesting, however, was BTS’ cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You,”explaining that the song gave the group comfort during a difficult year.
