BTS Performs Coldplay's Fix You & Gives The Internet Chills; Gets Love From Chris Martin And Gang

BTS brings the goosebumps on their MTV Unplugged set, where they covered the Coldplay classic and gave the world front row seats to their awesomeness.

If you didn't love BTS before, be prepared to right now. The seven-member K-pop sensation's world domination continues with a half-hour set on MTV Unplugged on Feb 23, and gave the Internet collective chills after their stripped-down and almost transcendental (you can agree or disagree depending on how big a BTS fan you are) cover of Coldplay's 2005 hit, Fix You.

The rendition, performed on a stage in Seoul in South Korea, floored their fans and lit up socials. It has been viewed 5.1 million times and counting on YouTube. But the best endorsement came in the form of a Tweet from Brit legends Coldplay, who wrote the word for beautiful in Korean, tagged BTS, added hearts, and ended off with Love c, g, w & j , which are the Coldplay bandmembers' initials.

Chills, anyone?

Pundits are saying that if this doesn't make you a BTS convert, perhaps nothing will. BTS's Jimin said, “This song gave us comfort, so we wanted to prepare this cover to comfort you as well.” Awww.

The rest of their show-stopping set included the debut performance of their song Telepathy from their latest album, BE, along with a rendition of their mega-hit Dynamite.

Can RM, Jimin, Jin, Suga, Jungkook, V and J-Hope Fix You and all the woes in your life? Some say yes.
