'The Kelly Clarkson Show' receives criticism for showing a photo of a different band when mentioning BTS

AKP STAFF

On September 14, social media platforms were filled with complaints and anger from the BTS fandom as 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' made a mistake during a recent broadcast.

During the first episode of the show's third season, Coldplay's lead singer Chris Martin appeared as a special guest. On this day, Chris Martin talked about various music topics and even talked about his collaboration with the global K-pop group BTS. 

Chris Martin shared his experience while working with the band for "My Universe," which is a new track in Coldplay's upcoming album 'Music of the Spheres.' Kelly Clarkson even stated, "It's called 'My Universe,' and you did it with BTS, right? I love that. I love that you're working with BTS." While speaking about the group, 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' went on to display a photo.

However, the photo they showed was not of BTS but was of a rookie group called Blitzers that debuted in May 2021. As soon as the episode aired, many fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment.
