Watch MONSTA X Get Into a Dance Battle Backstage at iHeartRadio Jingle Ball


You may already know that K-Pop band MONSTA X can dance as well as they can sing ... but can they hang with the iconic subway dancers in New York City? Spoiler alert: THEY TOTALLY CAN.

Backstage at iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One, famed NYC dance group Waffle Crew was breaking it down backstage with all of the stars, and a few of the MONSTA X guys got into it, and showed everyone their best moves! 

Watching Waffle Crew jump, and flip, and spin around the subway pole, the band was impressed, and decided to get in on the action. 


MONSTA X kicked off this year's iHeartRadio Jingle Ball with a performance of their single "Shoot Out," and they are the first K-Pop band to perform at the annual holiday event! The single is from the band's latest album Take.1 Are You There?

The South Korean band is composed of seven members, Wonho, Minhyuk, Hyungwon, Jooheon, Kihyun, Shownu, and I.M., forming in 2015 on Mnet survival show No.Mercy. Since then, they've released two full-length studio albums (plus one Japanese album), six EPs, and have appeared on multiple TV shows in Asia. 

MONSTA X also performed at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, also joining The Chainsmokers on stage. Before taking the Stage in New York City, the guys chatted with Z100's Maxwell, and talked about what they've been up to. The guys explained that they have been focusing on their career, and that they are "honored" to be the first K-Pop group to perform on the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour. In fact, they said they are "Jingle Ballin'." Watch the full interview below.
