BTS kicked off Grammys weekend last night (March 12) with a performance at MusiCares’ ‘Music On A Mission’ virtual benefit concert.
Taking to the stage at the Peace Hall at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea, the K-pop giants performed their Grammy-nominated (Best Pop Duo/Group Performance) song ‘Dynamite’, with band member Jungkook on drums.
The ‘Music On A Mission’ benefit was put on to help raise proceeds for members of the music industry severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Other performers on the night included HAIM, John Legend, H.E.R. and Jhené Aiko.
The concert is available to watch in full through March 19 via the MusiCares website.

According to a post on the official Grammys website, “artists will be coming together, while still safely apart, to play music for each other as a community and celebrate the music that unites us all”.
On Thursday (March 11), South Korean media outlets Yonhap and Korea Times reported that the Big Hit Entertainment artist donated ₩100million (roughly £63,300) to Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital on his 28th birthday on March 9.
The donation was made towards child cancer patients in the hospital, which is located in his hometown of Daegu.
