Fans of the seven-piece boyband – made up of Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, RM, Jin, V and Jungkook – were left outraged last year when BTS found themselves snubbed by the Recording Academy ahead of the 2020 Grammy Awards.
The Army were left frustrated and argued BTS ‘deserved better’ and it sounds like their calls have now been answered.
As the nominations ahead of the 2021 Grammys dropped on Tuesday, it was revealed that BTS have been nominated in the category for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their track Dynamite.
BTS shared their reaction in a video they posted to Twitter and the sheer shock on their faces is just a joy to watch.
Lost for words over their history-making nomination, the boys tweeted: ‘Ohmmmmmmyyyyyyyyggghghhhhhhhgggggggggdhdhsjsixudbslsogbdsisgshdbxidjdbdidhdifjfiri #GRAMMYs#BTS
Others mimicked BTS’ response and tried to get their tweet of gibberish trending on the social media site, as one fan called the band the ‘best in the universe’.
Another proud fan reflected on the band’s journey, as they tweeted: ‘a year ago they presented a grammy award little did they know the year after they would be nominated for a grammy im so beyond proud im crying!#GRAMMYs #BANGTAN #JIMIM #BTS THEY DID IT!!’
Beyoncé leads this year’s Grammy nominees after bagging nine nominations, with Taylor Swift, Roddy Rich and Dua Lipa also getting multiple nods.
The awards – set to take place in February 2021 – will be hosted by comedian Trevor Noah, who joked: ‘Despite the fact that I am extremely disappointed that the Grammy’s have refused to have me sing or be nominated for best pop album, I am thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event.
‘I think as a one-time Grammy nominee, I am the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night because I too know the pain of not winning the award!’
Noah teased: ‘This is a metaphorical shoulder. I’m not trying to catch Corona.’
Earlier this year, BTS had performed at the Grammys 2020 with Lil Nas X and treated fans to a mash-up of the rapper’s hit Old Town Road.
The year before in 2019, BTS presented an award on stage.
Their nomination comes after the band recently released their new album BE, that features tracks Dynamite and Life Goes On.
BE was put together during the coronavirus pandemic, which saw the band forced to postpone their world tour and it’s said to reflect the ‘thoughts, emotions and deepest ruminations’ of the band.
