BTS' invitation to the Billboard Music Awards doesn't come as a surprise, given that the group are currently nominated for (and a favourite to win) the Top Social Artist award for this year's event. Not only are BTS the first K-pop act to be nominated for the Top Social Artist award in Billboard history, their upcoming invite to the music award event will also mark the boys' first U.S. red carpet event.
As for when the winners of the 2017 Billboard Music Awards will be announced, the event take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 21.
Congrats, BTS, and fingers crossed for some more awards glory!
