The group put on two record-breaking worldwide tours, Love Yourself World Tour and BTS World Tour Love Yourself: Speak Yourself. They won Top Social Artist and Top Duo/Group at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, and Best K-Pop and Best Group at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
The group also won every award they were nominated for at the American Music Awards by winning Favorite Duo or Group Pop/Rock, Favorite Social Artist, and Tour of the Year.
At the end of the year, BTS had Daesang All-Kills at the 2019 Melon Music Awards and the 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards, becoming the first artists in history to ever win all four Daesangs at MAMA in one night. They concluded the year by performing on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.
