ARMYs are wondering who the featured “Special Guest” is advertised on the poster. So, the timeline is going crazy with guesses.
the whole tl went from so what’s ??? to WHO IS THE SPECIAL GUEST

Some have jokes, though…

So, here are 10+ legit possible special guest possibilities for BTS’s Proof Live…
1. Snoop Dogg
This is one of ARMYs’ top picks. It seems valid because Snoop Dogg is the confirmed collaboration for BTS’s anthology album.
what if the special guest is snoop dogg and they’re going to perform that hidden collab song
— lia⁷ PROOF 10/06 (@storyofpjm) June 6, 2022
ARMYs are also hoping that American R&B singer H.E.R. is a possibility.
What if the special guest is HER? I mean ???
— ⟭⟬ ⁷⟬⟭✨PROOF✨ (@jinskindangels) June 6, 2022
She recently got dinner and went to an arcade with Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and BTS.
— H.E.R. (@HERMusicx) June 5, 2022
Speaking of Coldplay, the British band seems like one of the greatest potential guests considering they recently collaborated with BTS on the hit song “My Universe.”
my! WHAT IS THE SPECIAL GUEST WITH COLDPLAY ??🤡🤡 THE MUSICIAL INSTRUMENT BEHIND BTS IS VERY SIMILIAR TO HAVING A COLDPLAY🤨🤡 pic.twitter.com/XvK7kQXkah

5. Silk Sonic
Silk Sonic is one of the most popular mentions when discussing BTS’s potential special guest. The duo consists of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, who the BTS members have been friendly with.
special guest, two chairs in the background, and picture taken in vegas? dare I say silk sonic? pic.twitter.com/npJeAuD430
— ✧*ava☽⁷ WE LOVE YOU JIMIN😭 (@tpwkjimin) June 6, 2022
BTS even attended Silk Sonic’s Las Vegas concerts, and ARMYs have been wondering ever since what .Paak meant when he captioned his photo, “TO BE CONTINUED.”
they attended silksonic las vegas concert and anderson posted selca with the caption "to be continued" ….special guest? pic.twitter.com/HZVcTswTQI

6. Epik High’s Tablo
Suga and RM especially are good friends with Tablo and have a lot of respect for him. So, ARMYs suggest he could be the guest considering the new album reflects on BTS’s history, and they have said Epik High especially influenced them.
the special guest is tablo by the way… live show on their ninth anniversary… tablo one of namgi's idols who inspired them to make music…. who was in las vegas the same time as bts WE GOT IT pic.twitter.com/Q09hR7isH9
— fawzul⁷ bday (@agustranda) June 6, 2022
7. Megan Thee Stallion
Like Coldplay, rapper Megan Thee Stallion could be possible since she recently collabed with BTS. She was featured on a remix of the group’s hit song “Butter.”
AND WHEN THE SPECIAL GUEST IS MEGAN???? pic.twitter.com/hQzvmtaViZ
— gigi⁷ (ARSD!!📌) (@sugawainscoting) June 6, 2022
They were also originally supposed to perform it together live at the 2021 American Music Awards, but something came up.
Special Guest Megan Thee Stallion since they never got to do that Butter @ AMA performance with her? Perhaps?! 🙏
— tay⁷🌙 인연 🌈 fruit vibes.₁₈₇🖤 (@myjoonmymoon) June 6, 2022
ARMYs pointed out that BTS and their good friend Halsey’s “Boy With Luv” is featured on the Proof album. So, Halsey could totally be a good choice of guest!
SPECIAL GUEST? COULD IT BE HALSEY CAUSE BOY WITH LUV IS FEATURED ON THE ALBUM OMG https://t.co/Iezc1HHwOj
— ziva⁷ || 10.06.2022 (@stateofgoldrush) June 6, 2022
9. Charlie Puth
American singer, songwriter, and record producer Charlie Puth is also frequently mentioned now since he accidentally revealed he may have confirmed his collaboration with BTS.
What are the odds of the "special guest" being either Snoop Dogg or Charlie Puth??????
— Mono⁷ (◕ᴗ◕✿) Finding moots (@RiderOfCypher) June 6, 2022
10. Bang PD
Of course, HYBE founder Bang Si Hyuk (also known as Bang PD or Hitman Bang), the man behind BTS, could be the special guest. Again, since Proof is all about BTS’s past, present, and future, who better than Bang PD?
Last but not least… ARMY themselves!
watch the special guest be army LMAO
— 🐻❄️⁷ | TORONTO ARMYS 📌 (@userbfIy) June 6, 2022
Of all, this seems like seriously one of the most legitimate possibilities for BTS’s special guest.
— mon⁷ 6.10 (@knjgIoss) June 6, 2022
Previously, it was teased that BTS would have a special guest at their 2019 sold-out Webley Stadium concert. While ARMYs were convinced it was Halsey, the special guests turned out to be the ARMYs who attended via live stream.
So, of all the names mentioned, who do you think will be the special guest at Proof Live?
Special Guest According to Armys are Chris Martin, Halsey, Charlie Puth, H.E.R, Bang PD, Megan, Anderson Paak, Snoop uncle?? pic.twitter.com/Kxa14u9CEa
