ARMYs, your favourite boys are the first K-Pop group to win an award at the Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) :D
On Sunday night (21st May), Big Hit Entertainment’s widely-popular male idol group BTS (방탄소년단) took home the Top Social Artiste award!
Presented by ION360, the boys were up against Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, and Shawn Mendes for the win. Since the award, which is one of 2 fan-voted categories at the BBMAs, was introduced in 2011, The Biebs has never lost once.
Until this year, that is.
You posted. You tweeted. You voted.

“We still cannot believe that we’re standing here on this stage at the Billboard Music Awards. It is so great to see all the artistes we admire, and we feel honoured to be in this category with all these great artistes right in front of us,” said Rap Monster during the group’s acceptance speech.
He continued, “Most importantly, this award belongs to the every people all around the world that shine the love and light on us by the million and make BTS proud.”
Congratulations, BTS :) We’re all very proud of you!
