If we know one thing about America’s Got Talent, is that the series adores the South Korean boy band BTS. In a backstage segment, Howie Mandel asks Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum to teach him some dance moves. He plays BTS’ “Dynamite” on his phone which turns into a whole boy band battle before our eyes.

Two very different boy bands go head-to-head on “America’s Got Talent”

Larger Than Life and Korean Soul are two different boy bands that appeared America’s Got Talent to help launch their careers. Only one of them was a hit with the judges. The first was Larger Than Life which was literally named after the famous Backstreet Boys song. From the way the editing was done, it was so easy to tell that this band was going to be a little underwhelming.

They performed a mix of “Larger Than Life” and “Tearing Up My Heart” with matching outfits and out of sync dance moves. Just looking at Simon Cowell’s face let it be known that Larger Than Life wouldn’t have a success story like One Direction.

All the judges except Vergara gave the act their red buzzers. The group seemed a bit disappointed but didn’t let Judge’s critics break their spirits backstage. Luckily, Korean Soul was waiting in the wings to redeem the future of the show’s boy bands.

The four-member group met 10 years ago at a community choir in Seoul. After the success of boy groups like BTS and EXO, Korean Soul has huge hopes and dreams. Their cover of “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo was flawless. Their harmonies were smooth as butter and more than worthy of a Golden Buzzer. They didn’t get a Golden Buzzer but certainly won the love of fans around the world. They were elected in the next round by the four judges.
