After failing to snag a win at the 63rd Grammy Awards, KPop sensation BTS took to VLive to express how they felt over the loss.
The Asian act was nominated for the Best Pop/Duo Group Performance category for their 2020 single “Dynamite,” which was the group’s first English single to hit number one in the Billboard HOT 100 and other US charts.
The group is also the first-ever Kpop unit to be nominated in the Recording Academy Awards Show. Despite this momentous nod, the group ultimately lost the category to the tandem of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande for their single “Rain on Me.”
After CBS released the list of winners online ahead of the Grammy’s annual telecast, fans were quick to decry the results.

To address the fans’ outcry after their Grammy loss, the group went live after CBS’ telecast (March 15) to assure fans that they were okay and were happy to be given the nomination in one of the most prestigious award-giving body in the world.
In addition to this, each member offered their heartfelt gratitude to fans everywhere who continue to support them.
Group leader Kim Nam-Joon, more popularly known as ‘RM,’ echoed the group’s sentiments, urging fans to raise their glasses in celebration
“ARMYs everywhere, no worries! It’s all good! We did it, we made it, we got you. We got our glasses and our champagne so, let’s cheers,” he said.
Although 2021 saw BTS’ first major nomination in the Grammys, they first made waves back in 2019 at the 61st Awards Season where they earned a nod for Best Record Packaging for their album “Love Yourself: Tear.”
The show was convened without a live audience due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a limited number of performers and nominees were present during the event, which was hosted by The Daily Show’s main man Trevor Noah at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Notable winners in this year’s Grammys include Fil-Am artist H.E.R for Song of the Year, Billie Eilish for Record of the Year, Taylor Swift for Album of the Year, Megan Thee Stallion for Best New Artist, Dua Lipa for Best Pop Vocal Album, Harry Styles for Best Pop Solo Performance, and Beyonce for Best R&B Performance.
