As Chris Martin and the show's host, Kelly Clarkson, continued talking about BTS, the show went on to display a photo of the group.

However, instead of showing a photo of BTS, "The Kelly Clarkson Show" made a mistake of showing a photo of rookie group Blitzers, who recently made their debut back in May 2021.

Upon seeing the broadcast and the mistake, netizens took to their social media to express their disappointment and criticize the show, with many stating that simply typing "BTS" on Google search would give you numerous photos of the group.
