BTS have returned to The Late Late Show with James Corden – but this time, as Grammy nominees.

The K-pop kings have made history with their nomination for best pop duo/group performance for Dynamite at the 2021 Grammys, and after getting over the shock, they chatted to James about the monumental moment.

However, James had to poke fun at V for his subdued reaction to the Grammys announcement.

In a video shared to BTS’s Twitter account, RM, Jimin and Jungkook jumped up, clapped and shouted when their nomination was read out, but V simply sat on the sofa beside them and didn’t budge.

V said: ‘My nostrils were saying what I was feeling. The reactions were different for each member. In my case, I just couldn’t believe it.’

RM added: ‘He was like, frozen because he couldn’t believe it.’

J-Hope also explained why he wasn’t in the video, telling James: ‘I’m not in the video because I was sleeping, so I cried when I woke up.’

Suga, who is recovering from surgery on his shoulder, missed out on being with his bandmates for the moment, but texted them when he found out, wondering why he had gone asleep and missed the nominations.

Jungkook said: ‘He must be sad that he’s missing this moment here right now’, while V added: ‘He’s the type that really gets hyped up.’

The band, as always, thanked their ARMYs for their support, and put their names forward to perform at the Grammys in January.

RM said: ‘We’re truly honoured and we know it’s a huge step and a milestone, not only for us but for  the music industry. 

‘It makes us even happier to know how proud our fans must be right now, and it feels like our hard work has finally kind of paid off.’

After talking to James, BTS pulled out all the stops for their pre-filmed performance of Dynamite, taking over an air strip and a Korean Air plane.

Dressed in white and beige suits, the performance kicked off with Jungkook walking out of a lounge decorated for Christmas, emerging from the back of a trailer – to show RM strutting his stuff on the roof.

The group then dance on the runway before boarding the awaiting plane.

As a flight is compacted into a finger click, the group – RM, Jungkook, Suga, V, Jin, Jimin and J-Hope perform on the Late Late Show stage, before Jimin takes on a new job as… well, James Corden.

The group then crashed the TV set as the cheers rolled in.

In the category for best pop duo/group performance, BTS face stiff competition from Intentions by Justin Bieber ft Quavo, Rain On Me by Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande, Exile by Taylor Swift ft Bon Iver, and Un Dia (One Day) by J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy.

The nomination marks the first time a K-pop act has ever been nominated for a Grammy.

The Grammys take place on January 31, 2021.
