On the morning of May 24, Billboard Music Awards also announced a series of awards on the sidelines of the awards night before the official event took place at 7 am on the same day. BTS is one of the “shining” names!
On May 24, the Billboard Music Awards 2021 will officially take place at Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles. However, right from the dawn of May 24, BTC also broke the rules when announcing almost all the winners in the nomination categories, making the world aud̾i̾e ̾nce feel confused by the new format this year.
After the panic was over, BTS fans also woke up to celebrate when their idol won an absolute victory of 4/4 nominations, continuing to be a great joy mixed with Butter’s series of huge victories all over the world.
The first award named BTS is not strange: Top Social Artist when 7 boys have surpαssed BLACKPINK, Ariana Grande, SB19, Seventeen to bring home the win in this category for the fifth year!
Currently, BTS is the 3rd most successful artist in this category in the history of BBMAs, after Justin Bieber (8 times) and Ariana Grande (7 times), even surpassing Rihanna and Taylor Swift (4 times).
For the first time in the history of the BBMAs, a group won the Top Song Sales Artist category when BTS was named with this award. Obviously, in the era of “overwhelming” streaming, BTS still owns impressive disc sales, fully deserving of the above award, surpαssing competitors including Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, Morgan Wallen, and The Weeknd.
The Top Duo / Group category (Best Group) once again called BTS when they had a very successful 2020. It means that BTS becomes the second-most winning group in this category in the history of the BBMAs, just behind One Direction (3 times).
In addition, the Top Selling Song category also officially named BTS with the global hít Dynamite. This result is not surprising given Dynamite’s huge disk consumption over the past time.
