BTS Beats Justin Bieber & Becomes First K-Pop Group To Win At The Billboard Music Awards
BTS made not just one – but two! – history at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
BTS first made history by being the first K-Pop group to attend the prestigious Billboard Music Awards. The popular act was invited to attend the 2017 Billboard Music Awards hosted at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The group was the first K-Pop act to be nominated for the Top Social Artist award, as they were nominated against top U.S. artist names such as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes.
At the end of it all, BTS made their 2nd history by taking home the award! As they accepted their award, Rap Monster took the stand to thank their friends, A.R.M.Y, and giving credits for the award to their fans around the world. At the end, they concluded by saying in Korean, “I really love you all and thank you. We’ll become a better BTS.”
The Top Social Artist award has been awarded to Justin Bieber each year, since its first award in 2011. However, BTS became the artist to end Bieber’s 6 year streak by taking home the award for their hard work.
