BTS remain gracious after Grammy loss

BTS took their Grammy loss in their stride, as they shared videos of themselves after the announcement was made, where they expressed their gratitude for being nominated.

BTS and their large following were disappointed about not winning the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the recent ceremony, which took place on Sunday, 14 March 2021, in Los Angeles. With travel restrictions still in place due to the coronavirus, the K-Pop group joined in via Zoom from South Korea, where they also delivered a performance of their latest single, Dynamite.

BTS lost the award to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande for their hit single, Rain On Me, and shared the moment where they found out the winner in a video shared on Twitter. The group huddled together in anticipation seconds before, and they broke out in laughter as they tried to lift the mood once they realised that they had lost.

Despite having lost, BTS still made history as the first K-Pop group to be nominated in the category and the first K-Pop group to deliver a performance from South Korea. According to Hindustan Times, BTS shared a live video on VLive after the show, where they expressed their gratitude for their fans. RM thanked them for all their support throughout the years and claimed to be certain that they would receive a Grammy Award at some point in their career.

Jimin shared a selfie on Twitter where he also expressed his appreciation for their fans, stating, “Everyone, you’ve worked hard staying all this time to be together with us! Thank you for cheering us on, and it’s thanks to you all that we’ve been able to have this unimaginably special experience with. I want to thank you, truly, and I’m happy, Army! I love you.”
