BTS make history by winning the Artist of the Year award at AMAs.

South Korean boy band, BTS just got another gem to their ever-growing treasure of achievements. The K-pop group won the Artist of the Year award at the 2021 American Music Awards (AMA). The award was biggest honor of the show.

The group became the first Asian act in history to win the Artist of the Year award at the American Music Awards.

The 2021 AMAs took place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on November 21. BTS attended the ceremony in person and bagged all three awards they were nominated for: Favourite Pop Duo or Group, Favourite Pop Song for Butter, and Artist of the Year.

This is the third consecutive year BTS was won Favourite Pop Duo or Group. The members of the K-Pop band came up on the stage to receive their award and expressed their gratitude to BTS. J-Hope said, “Thank you ARMY and thank you AMAs so much for this. For three years in a row, wow!”

Taking the mic Jin said, “This is all possible thanks to ARMY. You’re our universe.” RM wrapped up the speech by saying, “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.”

When back on stage to get their Favourite Pop Song award, Jimin said, “Thank you ARMY, thank you AMAs, and thank you everyone for loving our song ‘Butter.'” Jungkook added, “‘Butter’ is a special song to us. We hope it makes you feel smooth like butter.” RM once again wrapped up the speech by saying, “Thanks to you all, ‘Butter’ has received so much love this year. All we had to do is just put out positive energy despite these hard times. This award truly proves that this song reaches many people’s hearts. Never take for granted. Thank you so much.”

Finally, for the big Artist of the Year award, BTS leader RM expressed, “Thank you AMAs, we’re truly honoured to be on this stage with such amazing, tremendous artists right over here. We’re so honoured. Thanks for that.” After a pause, he confessed, “I’m nervous, yeah.”

“Four years ago, we gave this first-time-ever TV live performance at this stage, AMAs, it was ‘DNA,’ and we were too excited and nervous at the time. And it’s been a long and amazing ride since then, but nobody could have ever bet on the odds of us standing here receiving this award. Except you all, ARMY. Except you all. Seven boys from Korea, united by a love for music. We met the love and support from all the ARMYs all over the world. This whole thing is a miracle. Seriously, we’ll never take this for granted. Thank you so much. We love you all, we want to give this honour to you guys. Thank you HYBE, thank you staff, all the people,” he was quoted saying.

Suga chimed in Korean, “We made our U.S. TV debut four years ago at the AMAs, and I had no idea we would be able to receive the Artist of the Year. I think it’s all thanks to ARMY, thank you ARMY!” Jungkook quoted, “We just wanted to make people happy with our music. We believe that this award opens the beginning of our new chapter. In the past few years, we learned that each and every moment is precious. So, in 2022, we want to focus on…” He was then interrupted by Jin who dragged him away to cut his speech short. While the rest of the septet members could not stop laughing, the video is now going viral on social media and is winning hearts.

V gave the final conclusion saying, “I’m deeply touched by this award. I appreciate your love. Thank you ARMY, thank you AMAs. Thank you, we purple you!”
