BTS did not take home an award from the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, but they did receive a very exclusive invitation that is rarely, if ever, given to anyone outside of the winners’ circle.
BTS and their art director HuskyFox were nominated for the “Best Recording Package” for their 2018 album LOVE YOURSELF: TEAR. The award ended up going to Willo Perron for St. Vincent‘s album Masseduction.
Even so, BTS was honored with an invitation to take a portrait at the Grammy Backstage Studio. This speaks volumes because only Grammy winners are allowed to have their portraits taken by the famous photographer Danny Clinch.
Many ARMYs who have heard the news consider this another big win for BTS, and they’re hoping that the next time BTS have their portrait taken by David Clinch, it will be as Grammy Award winners.
