ARMYs all over the world have plenty to celebrate. That’s cause BTS (방탄소년단) just made history at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

From the time the popular K-pop boyband arrived at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to the actual star-studded event itself, we list down all the highlights that happened today (Thursday, 2nd May).

1. Dressed to the nines

Super dapper! V, Suga, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Jimin and J-Hope were all decked out in Alexander McQueen.


2. BTS is the Top Social Artist

Sirius XM’s Sway Calloway gave the top social artist trophy to BTS at the red carpet. This marks their 3rd consecutive win for this award. “This means so much for us,” RM raved. “We’ll do our best today. That’s all we can do.”

This award was determined by votes from fans via Billboard’s website and Twitter. Other nominees include GOT7, EXO, Ariana Grande, and Louis Tomlinson.

3. BTS brought their friendship bracelets from Halsey

Ahead of the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, Halsey gave the boys pink bracelets with the Korean word for “friendship” (우정, pronounced oo-jung) on it. Aw…

4. What careers the boy would be pursuing if BTS hadn’t worked out

“Strawberry farmer”, “Tennis Player”, and “Business” were some of the options thrown out.

5. BTS’ Jungkook caught sneaking in some snacks

To quote a fan, “Would it be an award show without Jungkook eating his snacks?

6. People are apparently raving about the “dude with pink hair”

Jimin sure knows how to steal the spotlight doesn’t he? We wouldn’t be surprise to see more ARMYs colouring their hair pink as a tribute to their bias.

7. Taehyung had the best expression during the award show

That smile – enough said 😉

8. Winning the Top Duo/Group award

As this was their first time being nominated in the group category, BTS became the first Korean act to win the Top Duo/Group award from the Billboard Music Awards. They beat out Dan + Shay, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, and Panic! At the Disco.

Leader RM said, “Thank you, ARMY! Thank you, Billboard Music Awards. I still can’t believe that we’re here on this stage with so many great artists. This was only possible because of the little things we share together, the BTS and ARMY power. We’re still the same boys from six years ago. We still have the same dreams, we still have the same fears, we will have the same thoughts. Let’s keep dreaming the best dreams together. Thank you, I love you all.”

9. BTS and Halsey’s first live performance for “Boy With Luv”

There is no doubt that “Boy With Luv” received one of the loudest receptions from screaming audience. The single peaked no.8 on the Hot 100, marking their highest ranking so far.

10. Snapping photos with all the Hollywood A-listers

BTS was pop royalty as many pop singers took the opportunity to greet them for a photo session. They include Ciara (and her adorable son), Becky G, Tori Kelly, Drake, Terry Crews, Cardi B, Offset, and Madonna, and likely more to come!

Congrats boys 😉
