Singer Elton John is the latest celebrity to take the BTS Permission To Dance challenge. He shared a video on his YouTube channel, where he grooved to the song with the steps. In his post on Twitter, he also gave a shoutout to the ARMY.
John captioned his post, “When it all seems like it’s right, I sing along to @bangtantv #permissiontodance.” On Twitter he wrote, “When the nights get colder, And the rhythms got you falling behind @BTS_twt #permissiontodance.” Elton said in the video, “Thanks BTS. Love to the ARMY.”
Earlier, BTS leader RM gave a nod to Elton John on Twitter. He shared a video of himself on the official BTS Twitter handle. He captioned the video, “When it all seems like it’s wrong Just sing along to @eltonofficial #PermissionToDance.”
The Permission To Dance challenge was started by BTS in July, when fans choreographed their own moves and shared videos on YouTube. BTS, which comprises RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, have had a golden year as their two tracks Butter and Permission To Dance reigned on Billboard Hot 100, creating history. Last year, the boys released their first all-English track, Dynamite, which earned them their first Grammy nomination.

In a recent interview with Jaeki Cho for Amazon Music, BTS opened up about their success, the definition of masculinity and ARMY. Asked if they ever expected to have such a strong fan base, RM said, “Everyone asks us why do we have such a diverse fandom? When you are in the eye of a hurricane, you can’t find out. When the hurricane goes away, we’ll find out.”
Further in the interview, Jaeki Cho pointed out that it’s not often that many K-pop bands last this long. On how they managed it, RM said, “When we first started, I was honestly concerned about how we’d last for seven years being such different people, but I think the differences turned into a synergy for us to fill in the gap for each other.”
