BTS failed to win, but solo performance was successful.
The group BTS (RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook) was nominated for the first Grammy Award as a Korean pop singer, but unfortunately, the first solo performance was definitely successful, with the award promising next time.
The “2021 Grammy Awards” was held in Los Angeles, including the Los Angeles Convention Center, on the morning of the 15th, and was exclusively broadcast live on Mnet.토토사이트
It is the third year that BTS attended the Grammy Awards. In 2019, he went on stage as a presenter, and performed jointly with rapper Lil Nas X at the 62nd Grammy Awards. Attendance at the Grammy Awards this year is even more meaningful to BTS. He was nominated for the “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” award and also performed as a performer.
BTS is Cardi B, DaBaby, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone, Roddy Harry-Style, and so on.
In fact, BTS performed at the “Grammy Awards” wearing a suit of various colors of white, black and orange. BTS gave a musical-like performance, singing “Dynamite” on a stage full of colorful fireworks and flowers.
The Recording Academy, which hosts the Grammy Awards, held the 63rd Grammy Premiere Ceremony, a pre-celebration ceremony in the morning of the same day. The 2021 Grammy Awards selected the winner of the “BEST POP DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE” category, which BTS was nominated for.
The competitors who were nominated along with BTS are Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s Rain On Me, Jay Balbin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tany’s UN DIA, Justin Bieber’s and Quavo’s Intensions, Taylor Swift and Bone Event’s Exile.
“Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” is a newly established category in 2012 and is awarded to artists who have achieved outstanding artistic achievements in pop vocals or performance in the form of duo, group, and collaboration. BTS was nominated for “Dynamite,” which topped Billboard’s main single chart “Hot 100” three times.
BTS’s “Dynamite,” released in August last year, is a track well-received for reaching the peak of the disco pop genre and contains BTS’s message of hope for the world. In particular, BTS drew attention by taking on new challenges such as singing in English for the first time since its debut as a breakthrough to overcome the helplessness and despondency caused by the coronavirus.
In addition, BTS’s “Dynamite” has continued its global popularity, ranking in the top 50 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for 28 consecutive weeks, fourth on the Billboard Global (excluding the U.S.), and eighth on the Billboard Global 200. BTS even proved its worldwide popularity by being selected as the best pop star of 2020 by Billboard of the U.S.
Therefore, global fans beyond Korea supported BTS’s “Grammy Awards” and expected a new K-pop record. Expectations grew even higher as BTS was the first Asian singer to be nominated for the “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” category.
Unfortunately, however, BTS’s win failed. The “2021 Grammy Awards” “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” trophy went to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain on Me.”
Later, Jimin uploaded a selfie on BTS’s official social media and thanked ARMY (fan clubs), saying, “You’ve worked hard to be with us until now!” And BTS Jimin said, “Thank you for your support and it’s a ridiculous experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I’m happy. ARMY! I love you,” he said, expressing his infinite affection.
