The group will also be releasing its Love Yourself: Tear album just two days before its performance at the awards show.
BTS shared on Twitter, “Look out for our second appearance or – say what?- FIRST PERFORMANCE at the BBMAs!” BTS wrote in English on its official Twitter account. In Korean, the troupe wrote a similar message and also thanked the fandom, ARMY. “Thank you ARMY for making our performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards possible. Please expect a lot from our performance.”
Last year, BTS stunned the American Music Awards audience and fans watching at home with the guys’ high-energy performance, catchy AF K-Pop sound, and more-than-impressive dance routines. It was the first American awards show that BTS ever performed at, and it essentially introduced the boys to a Western audience outside their already rapidly grown fan ARMY.
And speaking of their ARMY, the group won Top Social Artist award last year thanks to their loyal fan base, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they went home with a few awards this year, too!
This year’s BBMAs will also feature performances from Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes and Dua Lipa, so be sure to set those DVRs for Sunday, May 20th!
