Singer and host Kelly Clarkson received flak from BTS fans after she mistook an upcoming K-pop group for BTS.

The third season premiere of "The Kelly Clarkson Show" on Monday featured Coldplay's Chris Martin as a guest. Martin mentioned his collaboration with BTS for the track "My Universe," which was part of the band's new album "Music Of The Spheres."

Clarkson congratulated Martin for the collaboration and said, "It's called 'My Universe,' and you did it with BTS, right? I love that. I love that you're working with BTS." 

But the inset photo that was flashed on the screen at the time caught the ire of the eagle-eyed ARMY members. It showed the members of the new boyband Blitzers instead of BTS.

Fans took to Twitter to voice their sentiment and to criticize the show.

"This is so disrespectful to BTS and the guys whose picture they used. Just because they are Asians doesn't mean they all look the same. How can they be so unprofessional and uneducated? All they had to do is type BTS on google. Is that also too difficult to do for them?" a fan commented.

"Hey @KellyClarksonTV , Google is free, learn how to use it. You can't just put a bunch of random Koreans and think people won't know it's not BTS. @Kellyclarkson hosted the BB awards when they performed, she made jokes using their names DO BETTER!!" another person wrote.

One Twitter user pointed out that Clarkson should also do her homework to avoid such mistakes.

"In regards to the kelly clarkson fiasco, I do not agree that it's just her staff to blame. If she talked bts up and did it all right, nobody would say 'well that was just her staff, kudos to them.' It's her show, with her name on it, she is ultimately responsible," the fan tweeted. 

Blitzers, formerly known as Wuzo Circle, is a new K-pop group that debuted in May.

Some BTS fans are blaming an article that appeared on The National for the mixup. The report said the seven-member group is aspiring to become the next BTS.

Even the Spanish editions of CNN and The Hill got it wrong in the past and mistook Blitzers for BTS.

"The Kelly Clarkson Show" has since apologized for its mistake and assured the ARMY that they now have the correct photos of the global superstars.

"Thank you #BTSArmy. We're sorry, and we've provided our stations with the correct image," the show's official handle tweeted.
