And that is why BTS is the biggest band in the world today. Fresh off of claiming the No. 1 and No. 2 songs in the US, the K-Pop superstars lit up the stage of the Billboard Music Awards with their hit, ‘Dynamite.’
Right now, no one is winning more than BTS. The group – consisting of V, 24, Jimin, 24, j-hope, 26, Jungkook, 23, SUGA, 27, RM, 26, and Jin, 27 – currently sit in the top two spots of the Billboard Hot 100, are on the cover of Variety, and they just delivered arguably the performance of the night at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. During the Oct. 14 event, BTS again enchanted ARMYs everywhere by singing their epic hit, “Dynamite.” After singing the song on the MTV Video Music Awards, on America’s Got Talent and on Good Morning America, would this BBMAs version top the rest? Judging by the adulation by some fans online, it certainly did.
BTS headed into the 2020 BBMA ceremony with two nominations: one for Top Duo/Group and Top Social Artist. The latter is a fan-voted category, and, not surprisingly, two other K-Pop groups were nominated. EXO and Got7 were also up for the award, as were Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande. There was no Top K-Pop Song category, but after the success of “Dynamite,” there might be one in 2021.
