The 2021 Billboard Music Awards nominations are out, and BTS makes history as the first Korean artist with four category nominations.
At last year’s 2020 BBMAs, BTS performed “Dynamite” and took home the award for Top Social Artist for the fourth year in a row. This year, they were once again nominated for Top Social Artist, leaving them just two wins behind before tying with Justin Bieber, who won the award from 2011 to 2016.
BTS were also nominated for Top Duo/Group for the third year in a row, and Top Song Sales Artist and Top Selling Song for the first time. The group will be up against other superstars like BLACKPINK, Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande, and others.
Out of the four nominations BTS received, only Top Social Artist is fan-voted, so ARMY better gear up! The 2021 Billboard Music Awards will air on May 23rd, 8 PM ET. You can check out the other nominations here!
