Despite K-pop’s global popularity, no K-pop group has ever won a Grammy Award. But that could all change this year, as BTS is up for a Grammy Award at the 64th Grammy Awards airing April 3, 2022, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.
The seven-member K-pop boy band is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their hit single “Dynamite.” This is the first time a K-pop group has been nominated for a Grammy Award, and if they win, they will make history.
The nomination is a huge milestone for BTS and K-pop as a whole. BTS has broken multiple records since their debut in 2013, becoming the first K-pop group to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart with their single “Dynamite” and the first K-pop group to be nominated for a Grammy Award.
BTS is up against some stiff competition in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. They are competing against Taylor Swift and Bon Iver’s “Exile,” Justin Bieber and benny blanco’s “Lonely,” J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy’s “Un Dia (One Day),” and Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain On Me.”
BTS has already made history by being the first K-pop group to be nominated for a Grammy Award, and they could make even more history if they win. Whether they will win is yet to be seen, but fans around the world are rooting for them.
No matter the outcome, BTS’s nomination is a huge milestone for K-pop and a sign of the genre’s growing global popularity. Tune in to the 64th Grammy Awards airing April 3, 2022, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET to find out if BTS will make history yet again.
