BTS is locked and loaded to blow up the 2020 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday (Oct. 14) by bringing “Dynamite” to the stage. The septet told Billboard in an exclusive video Monday (Oct. 12) about the hit’s explosive chart feat.
“Surprised, happy and thankful. It’s an unforgettable moment,” they tell Billboard in a video about “Dynamite” simultaneously hitting No. 1 on both of Billboard’s Global charts, the Billboard Global 200 and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated Oct. 3). They’re the first act to do so since the charts’ launch on Sept. 14.
They’re also nominated for top dup/group and top social artist, a fan-voted category, at the 2020 BBMAs. But RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook know the ARMY never disappoints. The guys noted “their passion, their unconditional love” as just some of BTS’ favorite characteristics of their fanbase.
The 2020 Billboard Music Awards will air Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m. ET, live from Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre on NBC, with Kelly Clarkson returning for her third year as the evening’s host. The 2020 Billboard Music Awards are produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Entertainment, the parent company of Billboard.
