The Beatles are at the peak of their stardom.

Stephen Colbert introduced BTS in the way The Beatles was presented when they made their first USA television appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964.

For their appearance, BTS and The Late Show worked together to transform the Ed Sullivan Theater - where the show tapes - to look reminiscent of how it did in February 1964 when The Beatles made their US television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

The Ed Sullivan Theater, where The Late Show now shoots, was the studio where The Beatles made their debut with "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "Twist and Shout".

BTS performed their latest hit "Boy With Luv" against a backdrop reminiscent of The Beatles' U.S. debut stage.

Colbert went all out too, acting as Ed Sullivan and introducing the boys with a quote nearly identical to Sullivan's introduction.

"You may have heard there's a new musical craze sweeping the globe, these fellas are really something", Colbert said his opening for the boy band, introducing the members by name and caption (like Sullivan did for John, Paul, George, and Ringo).

Yesterday, BTS was at The Late Show and some exciting things happened.

"These boys are from across the pond, the big one, the one with Hawaii in the middle", he continued.

Host Stephen Colbert opened the show (in black and white) by introducing the seven members of the wildly popular group - J-Hope, V, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, Jin, and RM.
