BTS is one of the biggest K-Pop bands of all time and the American Music Awards are one of the most star-studded and reputed award shows. Will BTS be a part of the iconic show this year?
Will BTS Perform At The AMAs?
The world-famous band is currently on a break. BTS announced earlier that the band would be disbanding for some time while the members serve their mandatory time in the South Korean military service.
Their hiatus may last till 2025. The South Korean rules require all able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 28 years to complete their military service. It is believed that numerous members of the band will be focused on releasing individual projects in the meantime.
Although the fans hoped that the band would be coming together to perform, they will not be performing at the American Music Awards this year.
However, there are plenty of other famous and successful people who will be performing. They include David Guetta, Charlie Puth, Imagine Dragons, Tems, Wizkid, J.I.D, Yola, Anitta, Lil Baby, Stevie Wonder, P!NK, Bebe Rexha, Nice, Dover Cameron, GloRilla, Imagine, Carrie Underwood, and many more.
What Awards Are BTS Nominated For?
BTS has been nominated for two awards at the American Music Awards 2022. The first category is for the Favourite K-Pop Artist. BTS has been nominated along with Blackpink, Tomorrow x Together, Twice, and Seventeen.
The second category is for Favourite Duo/Group. In that category, BTS is running against Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, One Republic, and Maneskin. The BTS army (that is what the BTS fans call themselves) are happy about the nominations and also confident that their favorite boys will win the awards.
However, some fans were upset that the band did not get nominated for Favorite Artist or even for Best Pop/Rock song. Interestingly, the band was not only nominated in both categories last year, but they also won both awards.
Breaking BTS’s Records
BTS is the first and the only K-Pop band to have won the Favorite Due/Group award. The band continued to win the award since they were first nominated in 2019.
They are currently tied for most wins in most categories with One Direction, Aerosmith, The Black Eyed Peas, and Halls & Oats. All six artists have the most wins in most categories as of now. But if BTS Army is to be believed, that might not be the case for long.
If the band wins the award this year too, it will make them the only band to have achieved that feat. They will break all previous records and become the first band ever to have the most wins in most categories, that too as a K-Pop group.
The award show will be held at the Microsoft Theater, in Los Angeles, California. It will be held on November 20 at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT/ November 21, 1 am GMT, and at 10 am KST.
People can also watch the whole event streaming on ABC’s streaming website or on Hulu. There will also be a red-carpet event before the award ceremony begins.
