BTS performed their songs “ON”, “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On” at the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) and swept all the Daesang’s for the second year in a row.
Aside from all four daesangs, they also took home Best Dance Performance – Male Group, Best Collaboration, Worldwide Fan’s Choice, Best Music Video, and Best Male Group.
Although member Suga was not able to perform with the group due to his shoulder surgery, they made sure to include him throughout the show in various ways.
From leaving his spot open during performances, to surprise phone calls for the acceptance speech, BTS made sure Suga was present with them at all times.
During the “Life Goes On” performance, fans were totally shocked after seeing a hologram of Suga appear during his portion of the song.

Although this is no where close to having Suga on stage with them, it was the best thing they could do in their current situation. We all miss our Suga and we hope for a speedy recovery! Congratulations once again to BTS for all their achievements this year!
