    Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, have been nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their English-language hit "Butter."

    It is the second year in a row they have been nominated in the category. However, they failed to win it previously.

    "Butter," which spent a total of 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, will be competing against the likes of Coldplay's "Higher Power" and Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco's "Lonely" for the honor.

    If they win, the group will go down in history as the first K-pop act ever to win a Grammy.

    BTS' Grammy nomination comes just days after the boys bagged three American Music Awards including the top prize, Artist of the Year. So expectations are high for their winning a Grammy, but they were not nominated in any of the four main categories -- Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist.

    The awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on Jan. 31 next year.
