J-Hope performed BTS’ song ‘Dynamite’ at Lollapalooza 2022

J-Hope’s setlist at Lollapalooza 2022 included songs from his new album Jack In The Box, his 2018 mixtape Hope World, multiple BTS songs, and his single “Chicken Noodle Soup (feat. Becky G).”

On July 31, J-Hope of BTS headlined Lollapalooza 2022, becoming the first Korean artist to headline a major U.S. festival. One of his BTS bandmates Jimin flew to Chicago to watch J-Hope’s Lollapalooza performance. During a VLIVE after the performance, J-Hope revealed he originally wanted to perform BTS’ song “Dynamite” with Jimin at Lollapalooza.

During a VLIVE livestream following J-Hope’s headlining performance, Jimin joked that J-Hope did not get the other members’ approval to change the choreography to “Dynamite.”

During the VLIVE livestream following Lollapalooza, J-Hope admitted that if he had more notice about Jimin flying to Chicago he would have found a way to include Jimin in the “Dynamite” performance.

BTS originally released “Dynamite” in 2020. With “Dynamite,” the band earned a nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

Jimin then told fans watching the VLIVE that because J-Hope changed the choreography, Jimin was not able to join the performance.

“If I knew you would come I would have done ‘Dynamite’ with you,” J-Hope told Jimin.

“Suddenly, he said yesterday that ‘We should have done this together.’ But the choreography is different. Suddenly he wanted to do it with me,” Jimin said. “If I had known you were going to talk like that, I wouldn’t have drunk yesterday.”

Becky G also made a surprise appearance to perform “Chicken Noodle Soup (feat. Becky G)” with J-Hope. This marked the first time the two artists performed the song together since releasing it in 2019.
