BTS Is Going To The Grammy Awards; K-Pop Group To Present An Award
It's another dream come true for BTS and Suga never go wrong. The Korean boy group has been invited to attend the 61st Annual Grammy Awards and they will surely not miss this opportunity.
BTS's album Love Yourself: Tear is nominated for Best Recording Package which mainly focuses on the visual look of the album package. Although it is not a distinction of the "Idol" hitmakers' music, the nomination is already an achievement for the septet.
If Tear wins, the golden gramophone will go to the album's art director Doohee Lee of HuskyFox. Other nominees for the category are St. Vincent's Masseduction, the Chairman's The Offering, Mitski's Be the Cowboy, and Foxhole's Well Kept Thing.
According to Billboard, Big Hit has confirmed earlier reports that the group will present an award at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. In December, BTS has received their first-ever Grammy nod, making them the first K-pop act to receive recognition from the prestigious music award-giving body.
As soon as BTS's attendance on Grammys has been reported, the hashtag "BTXxGRAMMYS" began to trending worldwide. Although the group is not scheduled to perform at the awards show, many BTS ARMYs are expected to flock the venue to show their support to their favorite boy group. In return, BTS members are expected never to miss the chance to show their love and appreciation to their fans once they hit the Grammy stage.
"The fans gave us the wings that allow us to be where we are. That's why we have that special relationship," BTS member V said about the ARMY during an interview at the Grammy Museum in September.
The 2019 Grammys will broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS on February 10, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET. It will be hosted by The Voice coach Alicia Keys. The performers for the night include Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Post Malone with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, and Kacey Musgraves.
The Grammy nomination and attendance are just two of BTS's recent achievements. Since last year, they broke records and make history almost every single day.
In June, BTS was included on Time Magazine's "25 Most Influential People on the Internet" list. A few months later, Time featured Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook again as their "Next Generation Leaders." Additionally, BTS got the chance to speak about their advocacy when they got invited to the United Nations Assembly.
BTS became the first K-pop group who had two consecutive No. 1 albums on the US Billboard 200 chart in 2018. They also won Top Social Artist awards from Billboard Music Awards for two consecutive years. In November, they became the first K-pop group to perform at the American Music Awards.
The chart-topper K-pop group also broke records with the release of their concert films, Burn the Stage: The Movie, in November and Love Yourself In Seoul movie last month. To top it all, the septet embarks on Love Yourself World Tour, which includes 15 sold-out arena and stadium dates in North America.
