Here’s Every Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award BTS Won in 2022 and Beyond

BTS didn’t get the in-person slime experience, but they did appear in a video message to ARMYs after winning the Kids Choice Award for Favorite Music Group. However, this wouldn’t be the first KCA blimp given to the “Butter” band.

It’s a night full of music, dancing, and slime. In 2022, Nickelodeon broadcasted its Kids Choice Awards. What makes this ceremony unique is the fans’ involvement — viewers are encouraged to support their favorite actors, shows, and musicians, with the winner receiving an orange blimp. 

The 2022 Kids Choice Awards winner for Favorite Song is “Happier Than Ever” by Billie Eilish. The KCA winner for Favorite Female Artist is Ariana Grande. Although these artists are busy performing at their Permission to Dance on Stage Las Vegas concerts, BTS took home a trophy from the Kids Choice Awards.

They’re smooth like “Butter,” and now, they’re winners of a 2022 KCA, as voted by viewers. BTS is the 2022 Kids Choice Award winner for Favorite Music Group, nominated in the same category as Black Eyed Peas, Florida Georgia Line, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5, and Migos. 

After RM thanked the KCAs and ARMY for Favorite Music Group, some BTS members shared personal messages with their fans. 

“This award is for you, ARMY,” Jimin said in English. “We are touched by your love and cheer.” 

“We will never ever stop trying our best,” Suga added, with V chiming in with a “thank you” to ARMY. Although they were nominated for Favorite Global Music Star, Adele took home the orange blimp for that award. 

This wouldn’t be the first time BTS earned recognition from the Kids Choice Awards. The previous year, this group actually won the Favorite Global Star Kids Choice Award, appearing in a video message for fans.

BTS also set a world record for the most KCAs won by a music group at the Nickelodeon’s 2021 Kids’ Choice Awards, also snagging trophies for Favorite Music Group and Favorite Song. According to Billboard, this band won Favorite Global Music Star in 2018 and Favorite Music Group in 2020.

BTS recently received a Grammy nomination for their 2021 release ‘Butter’

BTS is known for sweeping at award shows, especially earning recognition at the 2022 American Music Awards. They also performed alongside Lil Nas X at the 2020 Grammy Awards, earning their first nomination the following year for “Dynamite.”

For the 2022 ceremony, the BTS members attended in person. They performed “Butter,” which was nominated in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. Although they did not win, fans took to social media, praising their unique live performance of the hit song. 

Now, BTS is focusing on their live performances, including their mini-residency in Las Vegas. They previously performed in Los Angeles and Seoul for a similar Permission to Dance on Stage experience.
