Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, on Sunday became the first Korean act to be nominated for a Grammy award, after being shortlisted in the category of best pop/duo performance for their all-English hit "Dynamite."
This year's awards ceremony will be held on March 14.
It is the first time BTS will be a part of music's biggest night as award hopefuls. The boys appeared at last year's ceremony as performers. They performed alongside rapper Lil Nas X, with whom RM collaborated to make "Seoul Town Road," a remix of Lil Nas X's hit "Old Town Road."
BTS will also be among a slew of top artists who will perform this year, but this time, they will have the stage to themselves.
Meanwhile, Billboard named BTS as "the greatest pop stars of 2020." It said that while many artists have struggled during the coronavirus pandemic, BTS dominated the livestream and virtual space, including with their widely successful Bang Bang Con virtual concert.
