Will BTS Be at the Grammys in 2020?
Suga is pretty good at guessing the future. He predicted that BTS would perform at the Billboard Music Awards, he predicted that they’d perform at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium, and he predicted that they’d attend the 2019 Grammy Awards. Now, fans are wondering if the K-pop idols will make an appearance at this year’s Grammy Award show. Will BTS be at the Grammys in 2020? Here’s what we know.
Will BTS be at this year’s Grammy Awards?
Although nothing has been confirmed, some predict that the K-pop group will make an appearance at this year’s award show. Last year, they became the first K-pop group to present an award at the Grammy’s. During an interview with Rolling Stone, BTS reflected on their previous experience at the Grammy Awards.
“It’s the biggest night in the music industry all over the world, so we were so honored, and kind of nervous, and so excited to be there with such great artists,” said RM. “We want to be back. All of the members are true fans of H.E.R. — and it was really surprising and amazing to be able to give the award to our idol. When I called, ‘Congratulations, H.E.R.!’ it was the best moment I ever had.”
In the past, BTS won multiple awards in the United States
BTS is slowly taking over the world, one award show at a time. Previously, the group earned nominations at the Billboard Music Awards, the MTV Video Music Awards, and iHeartRadio Music Award. Although they earned a Grammy nomination in 2019, the K-pop idols lost to “Weird Al” Yankovic.
This year, BTS earned the award for “Best K-Pop” at the MTV Video Music Awards, after the award ceremony received criticism from fans. Some fans mentioned that the views on BTS’ music video, “Boy With Luv,” rival those nominated in the “Best Music Video” category, and it was unfair that they didn’t snag more nominations. Could that be the same scenario with this year’s Grammy Awards?
Is BTS nominated for a Grammy?
The list of Grammy nominations for 2020 has not yet been finalized. However, some fans believe the group might earn nominations for their album, Map of the Soul: Persona. Their single, “Lights” is also eligible for nominations at this year’s award show. In the past, BTS earned the nomination, Best Recording Package, for their album Love Yourself: Tear.
“We really had so many firsts this year. First group since the Beatles to achieve three Number One albums in less than a year, first time performing on SNL, as the musical guests. Maybe first performance at the 2020 Grammys, because you know, we could dream,” RM said. “Thinking about it makes me really thrilled. We’ll just continue to be ourselves and just work hard on our music and performance.”
Music by BTS, including Map of the Soul: Persona, is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and most streaming platforms.
