Global singers such as Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga were nominated for this category and competed with BTS.
Shortly after the announcement of the candidate, BST posted a post on Twitter saying, "Thank you for listening to and empathizing with our music during the difficult times."
He also added, "It's all ARMYs who have made the miracle of being a'Grammy Nominee Artist'."
[RM/BTS: When we were trainees, we prepared something and left the biggest footprint for us during the growth period we dreamed of, and as we look for videos at every Grammy (award ceremony), we seem to dream like this vaguely now. ]
BTS won the award at the'Billboard Music Awards' for 4 consecutive years earlier, and also won two crowns at the'American Music Awards' held yesterday (23rd).
If you receive an award at this Grammy Awards, you will achieve the so-called'Grand Slam'.
