The combination of BTS and Coldplay is truly legendary. Since BTS and British rock band Coldplay released their collaboration single “My Universe,” we always wait for the live stage performance and recent time, we’ve gotten some amazing performances and specially, the performance via hologram.
Coldplay performed the song wherever they go as it’s a song from their new album Music of the Spheres. So, while BTS can’t always be there to perform with them, lead singer Chris Martin will sometimes sing the ̾k̾o̾r̾e̾an lyrics originally sung by the BTS vocalists.
Chris Martin from Coldplay sang Jungkook's part in Korean. He loves his part. Their voices blend so well together & sound top-notch✨

Other times, Coldplay will even include video of BTS behind them while performing along with the track’s vocals, perfectly honoring the group’s part.

Finally, we also could see the perfect perfomance “My Universe” live for the first time at 2021 αmєrícαn Music Awards (AMAs). Two group have the opportunity to perform their master piece and it was truly out of this world.
Then again, Chris Martin joined BTS for a performance of “My Universe” at the end of the PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE concert series in Los Angeles, California.
Now, the latest performance of “My Universe” is unlike any that we’ve seen before. Because BTS didn’t stay in US so Coldplay need to perform the song alone as they often did. For the finale of season 21 of NBC‘s U.S. version of The Voice, Coldplay kicked off the night with an iconic performance of “My Universe” with BTS. They actually acted with BTS but not with real people but thanks to technology. Because BTS members are in the process of self-quarantining at home after returning from the US. Seven members of BTS were able to make it via hologram.

Fans will recognize that this performance is reminiscent of the “My Universe” MV. The concept shows that three bands, Coldplay, BTS, and Supernova7, are on different planets but perform together via “Holoband.”
Coldplay, always supportive of BTS, shared videos on their social media accounts, thanking the group.

This is not Suga‘s first time as a hologram, of course. For the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), he performed with the rest of BTS via hologram for “Life Goes On” due to shoulder surgery.
LOL Yoongi's been a hologram twice now. pic.twitter.com/cUhXFMtXNU
