American singer Megan Thee Stallion announced the cancellation of a joint stage with the K-Pop boy group BTS composed of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.

Megan Thee Stallion announced on her official Twitter handle on November 21, "Hotties I was so excited to go to the @AMAs and perform with @BTS_official, but due to an unexpected personal matter, I can no longer attend I'm so sad!"

She added, "I really can't wait to hit the stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter real soon!"

Originally, Megan Thee Stallion was scheduled to appear at the "2021 American Music Awards" (AMA), which will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, USA on the morning of the 22nd. It was previously reported that she was going to sing the remix version of "Butter" with BTS; however, due to personal reasons, the collab performance was canceled

As a result, BTS is expected to only perform with the British band Coldplay composed of Chris Martin, Will Champion, Guy Berryman, and Johnny Buckland. BTS and Coldplay will perform their collaboration single "My Universe," which was released on September 24.

Immediately after its release, the song topped the US Billboard's main singles chart "Hot 100," as well as the Billboard "Global 200" chart, Billboard Global Chart (excluding the US), and the Digital Song Sales chart. As this is the first time to hear the world-class collaboration song live, the interest and expectations of music fans around the world for AMA have reached a peak.

BTS was nominated for AMA for four consecutive years from 2018 to this year. This year, the superstar K-Pop boy group is nominated in three different categories "Artist of the Year," "Favorite Pop Duo or Group," and "Favorite Pop Song."

The 2021 AMA will be broadcast live on American TV channel ABC. In Korea, it is transmitted through Watcha.
