It probably goes without saying that BTS are on the rapid rise in America following their incredibly well-received performance at last night's 2017 American Music Awards, and there's no one better placed to give the boys advice on succeeding in America than a star who was part of another massively popular boy band: One Direction's Niall Horan!
The pop superstar spoke to Billboard on the AMAs Red Carpet about a variety of topics, such as his solo career and what makes the AMAs so special to him (fun fact, the 2016 AMAs was where he made his solo debut performance!). When asked about BTS, Niall had nothing but praise for the boys and was incredibly impressed with their work ethic and attitude.
When asked if he had any advice for BTS regarding their rapidly growing popularity in America, given that he had experienced something similar with One Direction, Niall said that the group should "just keep their heads on their shoulders and don't let it get away from you, and make it last as long as [BTS] can."
Check out Niall Horan's interview with Billboard right here (his advice to BTS is at the 1:55 mark):
