BTS has won yet another award at a music awards in America!
On October 9, the 2018 American Music Awards (as known as the AMAs) took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. Prior to the event, boy group BTS had received a nomination for the Favorite Social Artist category, which eventually crowned the group as its winner.
For this particular category, BTS had to compete against other strong candidates. The nomination list included Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Shawn Mendes. Due to the concert in London, BTS could not physically attend the ceremony. However, the group left a video message thanking their fans for the award.
On the other note, also attending the red carpet ceremony were K-pop boy group NCT 127 and Tiffany Young, a former member of Girls’ Generation. NCT 127’s Mark briefly shared a comment regarding the group’s attendance, “this is our first time attending such a big event as a group. We are just very awestruck. We want to thank our fans, as well as everyone who is watching us at this big moment right now.”
Meanwhile, BTS is currently on their “Love Yourself: Answer” world tour. Next stop will be in London on October 10.
