Girls’ Generation will be making another set of US television appearances on January 31st and February 1st to promote their recent American album release.
Viewers with access to the American channels ABC and CBS will be able to catch the girls on ‘Live with Kelly’ and the ‘The Late Show with David Letterman‘. Two of the more popular shows in their respective categories.
‘Live with Kelly’ is a popular daytime North American talk show that airs at 9 AM EST on ABC (Check Your Local Listings for more information). According to Nielsen TV ratings, the show that airs every weekday, captures an audience of approximately 5 million Americans. The girls will appear on the Wednesday February 1st, 2012 airing of the show alongside Howie Mandel (co-host) and Jennifer Lopez. Of course TV Guide lists them as performers, but there is always a possibility of more in store, especially for an hour long talk show (with commercials).
The Late Show with David Letterman (Weeknights, 11:30 EST) is another popular nighttime talk show that features various celebrity guests. According to Nielsen TV ratings, the show gets a total weekly viewership of around 3.3 million people. While their website has not confirmed the appearance of Girls’ Generation officially, Soyuri (the founder of Soshified) has more than hinted at their appearance by tweeting that an official press release will be made available to GG fans on the 25th (today), while urging fans to purchase tickets for the Tuesday January 31st, 2012 airing.
Tickets for the Letterman appearance can be purchased on their website. More information can be found HERE.
With these two appearances, Girls’ Generation will be invading New York once again as they prepare to show their talent to the world in 2012.

😀 this is pretty epic. never would imagine a day like this would come this soon–flipping through the channels on tv & see the girls on an american show. if only i could make it to the recording rawr.
This is a HUGE deal! So proud of these girls 🙂 Hope I remember to watch (even though it’ll probably be all over YT. I still wanna give the girls some ratings!

When SNSD will come to Indonesia?
socha asd said:
they came but only to visit bali..but they probably even don’t know bali is in indonesia wkwkwkwkwkwk(so sad really)
This sure is some huge news! I’ll watch it for sure!
(but I’m worried about them on Letterman…. the interview can be painful to watch…)
SNSD are my 9 genies said:
yeah, Letterman (and any late night host actually) sometimes goes too far with humor. hopefully he won’t do that with our girls…knowing our girls though, they’ll probably just take any jabs lightheartedly ^^ just hope they don’t take anything too personally..
but still, this is HUGE and might help give them a wider audience and more interest. can’t wait to see them on my TV screen next week 🙂
he was brutal to miley cyrus and selena gomez, why should it be an exception to snsd? i hate special treatment. i hope david letterman treats snsd the way he treated all his other guests. its snsd fault for signing up to do the interview.
same here , the moment i heard letterman show i was worried about them

relax guys!!.. SNSD are good in handling this kind of things.. if you still worried just remember Sergeant Sica is there to cool off Letterman.
Horangee Samchon said:
I don’t think there is anything to worry about. They will most likely be at the end of the show, where most musical acts perform, and Dave may have just a few words with them just before they go off air. He rarely interviews bands unless he is really curious, but that would be a good thing if he does. As for The Boys, I believe it’s a song written for the American market, and while not representative of what the girls have done in the past, it’s probably the best song they could present in the US at this stage in their career. Go Soshi!

Pingback: SNSD untuk Hadir di televisi Amerika | adilablogz266
1) they don’t speak english (translators dont work in the u.s.)
2) cultural differences
4) no asians are on american television
5) nothing positive would come out of this experience for snsd
sorry its not worth going through all that to promote “the boys” (the worst snsd song ever made)
I see where you’re going but honestly thats really rude. They are already signed up to do it. Why make things negative and predict the worst-possible scenario? Can’t you just hope that everything will go well and that it will be funny? That would be what a true SONE would do. Idk if you are or not because you certainly don’t give off a partisan vibe.
Your absolutely right part of a sones job is to envison nothing but greatness for our lovely 9 ladies. True there are times when a certain song/act doesnt fit right with us but if we dont suck it up and support them then they will fail. Snsd depends on our strength and that’s what we must give them, strength beyond the normal limits of mankind so that they can overcome many odds and triumph all.
and if them being on american television was pointless then why did it go so great the first time?
1. Actually, Sunny, Tiffany, and Jessica are fluent in english. They all lived (if not born) in the US at one point in life. Sooyoung is pretty fluent too. All the other members can understand and are conversationally fluent.
2. Jessica and Tiff are from CA. They’ll be fine. Have you seen Tiffany’s swag/sass and Jessica’s inner-cali girl?
3. Not really…they’ll make jokes and what not.
4. No asians? LOL You don’t watch TV do you? Brenda Song, Lucy Liu, Jackie Chan, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, Jenna Ushkowitz, etc..
5. Promotion for SNSD in the US.
Yes. The girls will be total strangers from overseas, it’s gonna be awkward, and the host may not treat the girls nicely (which I can’t stand). It’s gonna be painful for me to watch as well. But I’m gonna have to disagree with you on #5. Appearing on these shows is a first for any Korean artist. The Korean media is gonna go wild over this, and see this as a milestone event. The girls will return to Korea as Hallyu heroes. It is things like these that brings you fame in Korea – going places where no Korean has gone before. It places a mark in history.
The girls can’t do what they do forever. There will come a time when Girls Generation fade away from Kpop- who knows when that’ll be..5 yrs? 10 yrs? For me, what’s most important is for the girls to leave behind a legacy, something that history will remember them by, and not as just another girl group who were successful during their time period. Appearing on these shows and being the ones that pave the road to success in America will earn them that recognition.
you obviously don’t know anything about korean culture. that whole thing about “milestone” and “the first korean” to be in american show etc. is a very arrogant notion from a non-korean perspective. you need to understand koreans are better off without western intervention. they were doing just fine on their own.
thanks for sharing your narrow perspective~
I speak from a purely Korean perspective, and I doubt you know more about Korea than I do.
“koreans are better off without western intervention. they were doing just fine on their own.”
You probably say this because you can’t stand people that are like yourself.
Come on it won’t be that bad although letterman is not a great show but it’s a great opprotunity
No Asians on American TV? Then what are Brenda Song, George Takei, Lucy Liu, Keiko Agena, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, etc.?
Tiffany and Jessica were BORN in California of the U.S. They grew up knowing English. You’re so ignorant.
As much as I want them to succeed, I just hope the interviews go beyond “Wow, there’s NINE of you!” and “How come only two of you speak English?”
Haha, yep, me too. xD
SNSD hwaiting! Conquer those two shows!
This IS a big deal. I’m beyond excited!!
Will anybody please be able to record their performances and interviews? Im going to be in school during that time and would hate to miss this amazing opportunity for the girls 🙂
The David Letterman show has recorded eps on the CBS.com website. You watch watch the whole episode their for free 🙂
So proud to be a sone!!! Feel really happy for them. But worried at the fact that they will be attending 31st late night show and the next day is an early morning one!

Letterman tapes at like 5 in the afternoon.
Jayvee Perote said:
wow….snsdJJANG~~~~ kekekekekke congrats to them 😀 more power to SNSD and SONE
I’m pretty sure you don’t have to pay for Letterman tickets, you just submit a request and get them for free (if tickets available, of course). Also, frequently Letterman just holds the CD in his hand and introduces the performing artist, then as they finish performing he walks over and shakes their hand and waves that CD at the cameras. So there is a good chance that the Girls won’t be talking on a couch built for nine, but just some standing chit-chat that JeTi can handle. There will probably be more talking on the Live with Kelly show, and co-host Howie Mandel can be pretty funny.
Didn’t Jessica once express admiration for Jennifer Lopez, who will also be on the Live with Kelly show? Something about her longevity in the industry, or her acting interests, or her perfume and clothing lines?
More importantly: If we can get SONES to create a massive scene outside of Live with Kelly studios (Lincoln Square), and the Letterman Show (Ed Sullivan Theater just north of Times Square), then the shows will have cameras outside and the hosts will have to comment in awe that the Beatles have arrived (Letterman’s Ed Sullivan Theater was the place that the Beatles performed for the first time on American Television.. I expect the Korean press to mention this, LOL).
OMG… good luck girls.. you can do it. hope all 9 of you can handle it. Be number 1 Girl band. SONE 4ever with you. SNSD jjang..
Allison Warren Rose said:
Full episodes of Letterman can be watched on CBS.com, so we’ll all be able to catch it!
Well, being featured on American TV again is one more small, but important, step in their bid for the US music scene. Go for it Girls; I’m pretty sure you can do it again 😆 !
SNSD Jjang !
AWESOME!!!!!!!!! More JeTi English moments and hopefully English from the other members as well. Hoot Hoot!!!!!!!!!
Jessica R said:
About the talk shows, you don’t “purchase” any tickets. You have to submit an online request to get tickets. For David Letterman, they randomly select you and upon calling you, you’ll have to answer a trivia question about the show. I’m not sure that they do the same thing for Kelly, but the tickets are at no cost, they’re all given out by chance. You can also show up to the studios at a given time to request Standby tickets and some people say that they’re more likely to get tickets if they show up than by submitting an online request.
This is such a great news!
This is amazing i just checked my directv for those days and both shows mentioned in the description that Girls’ Generation is performing. If only i could skip school that day…
I would to go and see them… but there’s ONE problem! only one…. I’m only a minor :(( I have money but I have to go to school and stuff and i prolly won’t even be able to watch it on the late show because of my “bedtime”…
Horangee Samchon said:
Awesome news! Most musical artist like this will appear at the end of the show and then Dave will probably go over, say Hello and maybe shake hands. If the girls bow, well that will be amusing for US audiances. Damn, and I just made plans to go Daytona for the weekend. I may have to divert!
SNSD not listed in the guest guide of “Live! with Kelly” for Feb.1 airing. Will it be just appearance on commercial? Rain failed, BoA failed even Wonder Girls failed, so why not with SNSD. But dont rush dont be pleased or sad too soon, You should take time and efforts more and more. There are few Americans who want to listen to Korean singers but many to do so to just good singers whatever they are from.
Gvk Streetspeedz said:
If only Oprah is still showing… 😉
All I’m gonna say is this…
All SONEs in NYC area MUST must be at these two shows and support the girls. It’s mandatory! You guys better be in the audience. I better hear screams & fanchants! The girls will need you there! Please don’t disappoint.
Michael Sternestedt said:
i still hope they come to stockholm sweden one day. thats not totally unlikely because right now the biggest export income for sweden is music. for instance run devil run is created in sweden.
i should be extremely happy if they show up in the morning show in TV4
PLEASE FREDRICK SKAVLAN, INVITE THESE GIRLS TO YOUR SHOW!! I’LL TOTALLY WATCH IT THEN! ON REPEAT!
I have to confess that I dont like david letterman. Never have. In fact i’ve always been of the considered opinion that hes firmly convinced the sun rises and sets within the confines of own backside. As a consequence, I’m a little worried that he’ll attempt to vent his ‘self percieved wit’ upon our girls. Admittedly theyre quite capable of handling themselves with style and humour and grace no matter the situation they find themselves in. They just have to stay true to themselves and their music, and not bow to the pressure of people saying that the US is THE market to break into musically.
Because its not.
I would love to see Girls Generation conquer the world… but not at the expense of themselves and what they are.
So-nyuh Shi-dae – fighting!!
WOOOW! Bigtime Soshi!!
Lil Mi said:
Awesome!! I hope they will appear on EllenDegeres Show also…
Lucky American fans…
I set my TV to record both the shows. 😀
When I was looking up the TV schedule, the Letterman show they listed Girls’ Generation in the description. But for the Live with Kelly Show…. it only said Jennifer Lopez and some other crap… I’m sure they are appearing but I was like “WTF?!!!! Why aren’t they written here? When cough cough Jennifer Lopez’s career as a celebrity is over.” XD
That’s strange because i checked my tv and both shows say Girls’ Generation is performing in the description.

All three of them Tiffany, Jessica and Sunny are native Americans, as they were born in the USA. Tiffany and Jessica speak exactly like Americans because they grew up in the States, technically speaking, both are American Koreans
Sunny was born in the States but shortly after birth was moved to Kuwait. This explains why she is not that fluent in English as afterall America is only her natural birthplace but not where she grew up and received education
Yay!!! I never even dreamed this would happen. and I’m glad they’re singing an english song otherwise everyone would switch the channel. I do hope it goes over well. I know WG is also doing an american minishow but it’s on a channel nobody watches (teen nick) big year for kpop though
Were they really interviewed by David? I guess they only performed at the Edo Sullivan Theater and just the performance was broadcasted at the program. I donot live in U.S. So please let me know the exact fact.
