Twice accidentally becomes senators after live US debut on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’

·3 min read

K-pop girl group Twice made their in-person U.S. television debut on the “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” with a performance of their English-language track “The Feels.” The show’s YouTube channel, however, mistakenly titled the video “Who Won The PA GOP Senate Primary? | North Carolina Says Farewell To Madison Cawthorn.”

The video, whose title has now been fixed, showed Twice putting on a memorable performance where they utilized Colbert’s entire stage, from guest chairs to his host desk. At the end of their performance, the girl group received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Colbert’s main guest for the night, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, is speculated to have enjoyed the performance as he is a known K-pop fan, having named Minzy’s 'Teamo' as a favorite song of his in 2021.

The mistitled YouTube video was posted to Twice’s official Twitter account yesterday.

The title “GOP Senate Primary and U.S. representative Madison Cawthron” was originally intended to be used for a video of Colbert’s opening monologue.

Twitter users had a laugh and were quick to chime in with their responses to the mixup.

One Twitter user, @JDoublove, tweeted a compilation of screenshotted YouTube comments, including one that said, “Thought I would never fall for politicians but these ladies proved otherwise,” and another that said “I have never enjoyed politics as a topic but these Queens proved otherwise. Congrats to Twice for being the first girl group to win a senate primary. Breaking records wherever they go.”

User @jeongyeonswifts made sure to double-check the results of the primary.

Another user, @twicextayxteez, wrote, “i dared to sleep and twice won a senate primary win.”

User @choutzuyu99 pointed out, “jype werent joking when they said twice will keep their momentum this year with various activities. congrats girls on winning the senate primary election!!”

The nine-member girl group has been keeping their momentum up this year by selling out the U.S. leg of their world tour, performing a two-night encore concert in their first stadium show, creating their own personal Instagram accounts and starting their first-ever solo projects.

Twice’s performance this week on Colbert’s show means they have performed on the show, well, twice. They performed a pre-recording from Seoul of “I Can’t Stop Me” in 2020. They have also now performed “The Feels” twice for a late-night U.S. television show, having a pre-recorded performance for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in October last year.
