TXT lit up “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with an exciting performance! On April 16 local time, TXT made their first-ever appearance on the popular U.S. talk show, where they performed their song “We Lost the Summer“—one of the B-sides from their 2020 mini album “minisode1: Blue Hour.” Although TXT previously made their U.S. television debut on MTV’s “Fresh Out Live” last year, the latest episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” marked their very first time performing on an American talk show.
The performance airs as part of an episode that also features a chat with Andra Day. Tiffany Haddish, meanwhile, fills in for Ellen as the episode’s guest host. Filmed in advance, the episode will air this Friday afternoon. You will not, however, have to wait until then to see the TXT performance. The TXT boys appeared as the musical guest of the day and delivered a stunning performance of “We Lost The Summer”, taking viewers around a set designed to mimic the classrooms and halls of an empty school. The members also had a chance to take viewers behind the scenes through some of the complex processes that go on to create a perfect video.
TXT consists of five members- Soobin, Yeonjun, Taehyun, Beomgyu and Huening Kai.
WATCH TXT PERFORM AT ELLEN’S SHOW
The South Korean quintet debuted in 2019 under Big Hit Music with the mini-album ‘The Dream Chapter: Star’. The music video for its title track ‘Crown’ earned them the record for the most viewed K-Pop debut music video within 24 hours for a boy group. It was followed by their first LP ‘The Dream Chapter: Magic’ later that same year, as well as two more mini-albums in 2020, ‘The Dream Chapter: Eternity’ and ‘Minisode1: Blue Hour’.
Meanwhile, TXT’s labelmate BTS recently announced the return of their concert streaming event, BANG BANG CON. For the showcase, the group will be streaming several of their previous concerts for free on their official YouTube channel. These include, ‘BTS Live Trilogy Ep. 1 BTS Begins (Memories of 2015)’, ‘BTS 5th Muster [MAGIC SHOP] in Busan’ and ‘BTS World Tour: Speak Yourself in Sao Paulo’.
Huening Kai drops cover 5 Seconds Of Summer’s ‘Youngblood’
Tomorrow X Together’s (TXT) Huening Kai has released a cover of Australian pop-rock band 5 Seconds Of Summer’s 2018 hit ‘Youngblood’. The singer flexes his vocal chops on his rendition of the song, which largely stays faithful to 5SOS’ original version. The cover, which dropped yesterday (April 14), is also the first song that Huening Kai has released outside of his work with TXT.
‘Youngblood’ is the latest cover from a TXT member, following Taehyun’s rendition of Nathan Sykes’ ‘Over And Over Again’ and Yeonjun’s cover of August Alsina‘s ‘Song Cry’. As a group, the boyband have also released their own versions of popular hits such as Shawn Mendes’ ‘In My Blood’ amd Avenue Beats’ ‘F2020’.
With every new album, the boys try to do something completely different than their pervious album. Fans are being fed well with the theories, surprise outfits, dark concepts and multiple music videos. TXT also have a few shows of their own and attend variety shows when their schedule lets them. Their songs dont have a set genre, they have songs that go from R&B, acoustic pop, hard rap to korean pop, hip hop and funk.
Each of their songs are bops, and all the albums are worth listening to, not just for the music but for the epic dance moves and cinematography as well. This 4th generation boygroup is only going higher, and are predicted to be huge as they keep putting out great music and relatable content.
Their first album debuted and peaked at number one on the Gaon Album Chart and Billboard World Albums Chart and entered the US Billboard 200 at number 140, at the time becoming the highest-charting debut album by any male K-pop group. The album’s lead single “Crown” debuted atop the World Digital Songs with TXT topping the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart, making them the fastest K-Pop group to appear on that chart and the second fastest K-Pop group to appear in the Billboard Emerging Artist.
The group’s commercial reception earned them several new artist of the year awards including Rookie of the Year at the 34th Golden Disk Awards and the 2019 Melon Music Awards, New Artist of the Year- Album at the 9th GCMA and Best New Male Artist at the 2019 MAMA.
