BTS won Artist of the Year—the biggest honor of the night—at the 2021 American Music Awards!
The 2021 American Music Awards is taking place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 21. BTS attended the ceremony in person and snagged all three awards they were nominated for, which are Favorite Pop Duo or Group, Favorite Pop Song for “Butter,” and Artist of the Year. For Artist of the Year, BTS was up against Ariana Grande, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd.
BTS has become the first Asian act in history to win Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards, and this also marks BTS’s third consecutive year winning Favorite Pop Duo or Group.
Announced as winners for Favorite Pop Duo or Group, BTS came up on stage to receive their trophy. J-Hope said, “Thank you ARMY, and thank you AMAs so much for this. For three years in a row, wow!” Jin took the mic and thanked their fans, saying, “This is all possible thanks to ARMY. You’re our universe.” RM wrapped up the speech by sharing, “It took four years to be on this stage to get this trophy. Thank you so much. Actually it means to us even more because we’re actually a small boy band from Korea. We just got united by the love for our music, and all we want to do is just spread love, the good vibes and energy through music and performance. But without you guys, ARMY, we couldn’t have done anything. Thank you so much.”
