How ARMY can watch BTS’ performance at the 2021 American Music Awards

The 2021 AMAs will be held in Los Angeles in front of a live audience. If one is not able to attend the show, the easiest way to watch BTS’ performance is on ABC. On ABC, the entire award show will be broadcast beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

For fans who do not have cable, there are multiple ways to stream the 2021 AMAs. With Hulu + Live TV, viewers can sign up for a 7-day free trial, giving an option to watch the 2021 AMAs for free. If not canceled after seven days, Hulu + Live TV costs $64.99 per month.

If Hulu + Live TV is not an option for BTS fans, then the 2021 AMAs can be streamed on platforms like fuboTV and Vidgo. Like Hulu + Live TV, both platforms offer free trials that fans can sign up for, allowing them to watch the award show for free.

What songs will BTS perform at the 2021 American Music Awards?

The 2021 AMAs will feature performances by Kane Brown, Chlöe, Jennifer Lopez, Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic, Tyler, The Creator, Carrie Underwood with Jason Aldean, BTS, Coldplay with BTS, and more.

Originally, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook of BTS were set to have two collaboration stages at the 2021 AMAs. The band was supposed to perform a remix of “Butter” with Megan Thee Stallion and the song “My Universe” with Coldplay.

On Nov. 20, Megan Thee Stallion announced she will no longer be able to attend the award show. Because of this, BTS and Megan Thee Stallion will not perform “Butter” together at the AMAs.

In a tweet, K-pop Herald reported, “.@BIGHIT_MUSIC confirmed that @BTS_twt and @theestallion’s stage will not be happening this year at the @AMAs due to Megan’s personal matter, as revealed by the artist, and stated the company finds it ‘cautious to give a statement on our side about the situation.’ #AMAs#Butter.”

Even though Megan Thee Stallion will not perform with BTS, the Korean septet will still perform “Butter” at the 2021 AMAs. The band will also perform “My Universe” with Coldplay at some point during the award show.

What time will BTS perform at the award show?

At the 2021 AMAs, BTS earned nominations for Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop Duo or Group, and Favorite Pop Song for “Butter.”

So far, it is not known what time BTS’ two performances will take place during the AMAs. Historically, BTS typically perform toward the end of award shows due to their massive popularity.
