K-pop boy band Seventeen made their US debut performance of the song “Left & Right” on the Daytime Emmy award-winning “The Kelly Clarkson Show” on Jan. 13.

“My next guest has sold over six million albums and have had their songs streamed more than two billion times all over the world. Here now with the US debut of their song ‘Left & Right,’ give it up for K-pop performance powerhouse Seventeen,” host and Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson introduced the group.

Seventeen, Amanda Sheffield and Sarah Hyland were the guests on the show for the Jan. 13 episode.

“Left & Right” is Seventeen’s song in the album “Heng:garae,” released in June 2020, which sold 1.37 million copies last year and emerged as the third best-selling album of the year in South Korea, according to Gaon Music Chart’s 2020 Album Chart.

Seventeen’s “The Kelly Clarkson Show” appearance came after they performed “Home;Run” on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Jan. 6.

“Home;Run” is from their album “Semicolon,” which garnered 1.12 million copies in sales in 2020 and placed sixth overall on Gaon’s 2020 Album Chart.

The YouTube video of Seventeen’s performance on the James Corden show has accumulated 2 million views.

“@pledis_17’s [Seventeen’s] performance of ‘Home;Run’ was quite simply dazzling! #SEVENTEENxCORDEN,” the show posted on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Seventeen will be holding their online concert called “IN-COMPLETE” at 6 p.m. on Jan. 23. At the concert, Seventeen will perform more than 20 songs, which can be watched through four multi-view screens.
