Seventeen debut on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' proves a 'HIT'
Boy band Seventeen appeared on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for the first time on Thursday, performing their 2019 digital single “HIT” for fans and the show’s viewers.
Seventeen was introduced as “one of the largest groups in K-pop” whose songs have been “streamed over 2 billion times” and went straight into performing its song.
Due to Covid-19, Seventeen pre-recorded the performance in Korea for the “Ellen Show.”
“We’re always so thankful to you, but more than anything, we miss you so much,” the band said to its loyal fandom CARAT in an interview for the show, which has been uploaded on Ellen DeGeneres’ official Twitter account.
“We desperately miss you. I’m hoping the day we can all meet healthy and safely is near.”
The band took part in “The Kelly Clarkson Show” where it performed “Left & Right” (2020) and the “The Late Late Show with James Corden” where it performed “HOME;RUN” (2020), both in January this year.
The video of its “James Corden” performance has surpassed 3 million views on YouTube as of Friday, while the performance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” has surpassed 1 million views.
