BTS made history tonight at the 45th American Music Awards. Storming the stage with their massive global hit "DNA," off their latest EP Love Yourself: Her, the seven-member outfit became the first k-pop boy band to ever perform on the show. "To call these guys an international sensation feels like a bit of an understatement," The Chainsmokers' Andrew Taggart introduced the performance, which featured a guitar-led dance-pop arrangement, plenty of trippy, psychedelic colors and tight-knit choreography.
Bandmate RM spoke candidly about the performance and what it meant to them, telling Entertainment Tonight, "I mean, AMAs, like, we watched the videos on YouTube when we were like 15, 13, so we cannot believe that we have our first time ever U.S. televised debut on the American Music Awards. It is going to be, I think, a new opportunity to reach out to the new fans and show them that our music and performances is something [they] can relate to, even if it's in Korean."
BTS also recently announced a new merchandise line, which includes custom American Music Award-emblazoned patches and pins.
