K-pop sensations BTS are about to embark on an American television journey.

The seven-member band will appear on a highly anticipated carpool karaoke segment on James Corden's The Late Late Show set to air on Tuesday, February 25. They'll also take over The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, February 24 in which they will be given the entire hour of the show.

News about the band’s appearance on carpool karaoke has sent fans into a frenzy. The popular segment sees Corden chatting with musical guests while driving around in a car singing some of their biggest hits. Past guests have including Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, One Direction and Elton John.

The most-watched carpool karaoke is with Adele from January 2016. It has amassed more than 211.5 million views. However, that could change after the boy band’s appearance airs as most of the videos they appear in tend to go viral.

Fans who can’t wait can also enjoy the group’s appearance with Fallon, which will air a day earlier. The broadcast will feature an extended interview as well as the performance of a brand-new song. It will also show the members on a tour of New York City landmarks.

Map of the Soul: 7 is the newest album from BTS and will drop on Friday, February 21. The 20-track catalogue from the album was recently released and includes smash hit Boy With Luv featuring Halsey and Make It Right. Also, there's a bonus track featuring a collaboration with Sia.

The group recently announced 37 dates for their new world tour. A number of big cities around the world are listed, including Seoul, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, London and Tokyo, but unfortunately there are no Abu Dhabi or Dubai stops, or any other regional dates. The tour kicks off on Saturday, April 11 at Seoul's Olympic Stadium.
