In addition to record-breaking pre-orders, a shoutout from Stray Kids’ fan Ryan Reynolds, and an incredibly balanced line distribution, fans of the group can now also celebrate Stray Kids’ debut US late night TV performance.
Stray Kids performed their title track “MANIAC” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, showing off their incredible choreography and vocal talent.

But they felt extra proud when they thought of how far Stray Kids have come since their debut.

They went from busking on the street to performing on one of the biggest late night US show, that too on the next day of their comeback.

With how phenomenal the performance was, fans can hope that Stray Kids will be invited to more late night performances in the US… but hopefully next time in person.
They did so well!! 👏🏼💚 I hope they get to perform in person next time. 😊 https://t.co/GOIGv8goqe

And although Western performances are usually filmed a bit differently than Korean stages, fans still joked that they hoped there would be fancams. So they can see the intensity of each of the incredible performers.
I would like you to share LeeKnow's Fancam 🥺🙏 I need to see it for research 😁 https://t.co/kxyVeLLDXH
