Nine-member K-pop group, Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, made their U.S network TV debut by performing their hot single, “The Boys,” on The Late Show with David Letterman last night (Jan. 31).

One of the most watched late night shows, The Late Show is famous for its celebrity guests, from politicians to Hollywood actors and actresses. This is a breakthrough for K-pop because this is the first time Korean singers have been invited as the musical act.

After their stellar debut last night, Girls’ Generation performed “The Boys” again on Live! With Kellytoday to a cheering crowd and taught some of their dance moves to host Kelly Ripa and guest co-host Howie Mandel.
