The South Korean boyband looked dashing, as they arrived at the awards. They were all dressed in matching black-and-white tuxes and were full of smiles soaking up the special moment.
The K-pop superstars stopped to speak with Billboard about their big night and took a moment to thank their huge global fan base first and foremost. Charismatic leader RM said, “We’re livin’ the dream. So, I should say thanks to all the Armies, they give us force.”
In a funny moment, RM kept mum about what award he and his BTS band mates were due to present (SPOILER: It was Best R&B album and H.E.R. won for her self-titled EP). He also talked about trying to shake off all the nerves for presenting their first-ever Grammy Award. (Another spoiler: They did a great job – check it out below!)
In other huge news, RM confirmed BTS is working really hard on their next album, which will focus on “paying off” to their fans. He played coy again though, when asked if the album would kick off another trilogy. He said, “That’s a secret” and then laughed.
In another red carpet interview which was posted on the Recording Academy/Grammys YouTube channel, RM teased the album would be coming “sooner rather than later” and the artists they were most excited to see included Lady Gaga, H.E.R. and Camila Cabello.
BTS was nominated for their first-ever Grammy Award for Best Recording Package for Love Yourself: Tear. They didn’t win the award though, it went to St. Vincent for her album Masseduction.
In at least one camera pan to BTS in their seats in the audience, RM, Jimin, J-Hope, V, Jin, Jungkook and Suga could be seen singing and getting into the Dolly Parton MusiCares tribute performance when Parton was singing “Jolene” along with Miley Cyrus. Hmmm...does this mean the new BTS album feature a country music collab artist?
