I just had to take time to draw attention to this wonderful achievement of BTS. BTS became the first K-pop group to win at the Billboard Music Awards on May 21, 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. They were nominated for the Top Social Artist category against Justin Beiber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes. Fans from around the world cast their votes for the winner, and BTS won by a landslide with over 300 million votes! K-pop fans know how to get things done!
The BBMAs twitter feed was also dominated by talk of BTS before, during, and after the show. It was such a fun event to take part in, and the excitement was through the roof! The boys seemed so excited to be there and looked like they had a wonderful time. It was great to see how many people knew who they were and many were even fans of them.
A big heartfelt congratulations to BTS for all of their hard work and the immense success it has brought them both in Korea and internationally.
And this victory is something that should be celebrated not only by BTS fans but by all K-pop fans. K-pop continues to spread across the globe, and millions more people were introduced to it because of these awards. K-pop fans should take pride in this achievement and continue to show their love and support for the amazing and talented individuals who bring us such wonderful music.
