On July 31, J-Hope of BTS made history as the first Korean headliner of Lollapalooza. His setlist was full of bangers from start to finish, but his “Dynamite” performance was a little more special to ARMYs.
J-Hope performed the Tropical Remix of “Dynamite” and even introduced a new choreography for the song. The groovy moves are a hit not just with ARMYs but also with his co-member Jimin, who was cheering from the sidelines throughout the set!
🐥 have yoh seen dynamite ? i think we need to change our dance. why is the dance so cool. if you have something like this you shouldve told us !
🐿 i shouldve gotten it confirmed by the members.
🐥 he changed the choreography without even telling us. does this make sense

But there was something else about this performance that touched the fans’ hearts. J-Hope didn’t fill in during the other members’ parts; instead, he let the crowd sing along and only sang during his designated lines as per the recorded version.
To many ARMYs, this gesture felt like he brought a piece of BTS on stage along with him, even when he could have had the moment for himself.
Bawling my eyes out at how Hobi let the other members voices shine during dynamite. He could've easily sung/rapped over their parts, but he stayed dancing, brought BTS with him on stage 😭 pic.twitter.com/JiwaLS9Tnk

In fact, after the show, he went on a live stream and said he would have loved to perform this song with Jimin. But it was difficult to learn the new dance at such a last minute, so they had to drop the idea.
🐿️ If I knew Jimin was coming, I would have asked you to do Dynamite with me!
🐥 This hyung! But the dance was changed and everything! I would have not had a drink then!

J-Hope also had BTS’s videos flashed in the background as he performed “Cypher Pt. 1.”
