This week, BTS sent ARMYs into overdrive by announcing that they will attend the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas later this month. The group are nominated for the Top Social Artist award, making them the first ever K-pop group to be nominated for a BBMA!
Here’s a list of four things we want to see from the boys at the BBMAs:
1. Perform at the show
We’d love to see BTS perform at the BBMAs. Maybe they could even open or close the show! What better way to start or end an awards show than to have a Korean group perform on stage, right?
2. Meet their favourite artists
BTS have always shown a lot of love towards their favourite artists, and appearing at the BBMAs would be the perfect place for the boys to meet them. Rap Monster could bump into Drake, while Jungkook might snag a selfie with Justin Bieber.
3. Introduce Americans to K-pop
While K-pop has a growing global presence, there’s still a lot of people who haven’t fully experienced the genre yet. If BTS get to perform, or even just have their music played during the BBMAs, it could spark interest in many viewers to look into the band more. Maybe they’ll even become ARMYs!
This goes without saying, but we want to see BTS win! ARMYs everywhere have worked so hard to support the boys through this nomination and we all know that BTS deserves this.
