BTS is set to take over the world.
Billboard Music Awards (BBMA) has just confirmed that the boy group will be performing at this year’s show. This is a huge deal, as it marks the first time any K-pop group has performed at the American award show.
Billboard announced this via a surprise tweet just today (Tuesday, 25th April). They also revealed that the boys will be premiering their new single on the show, which will be held on 20th May.
The K-pop group will be attending the BBMAs for the 2nd year in a row. They not only showed up at last year’s show, but also won the Top Social Artiste award – a category that has been dominated by Justin Bieber for the past 6 years.
BTS is also nominated for the same category this year. Other nominees include the Biebs, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovata, and Shawn Mendes.

This isn’t the first time BTS has made history, as they were also the first K-pop group to win a BBMA award and perform at the American Music Award (AMA).
BTS will be dropping their album “Love Yourself 轉 ‘Tear'” on 18th May.
