K-Pop Stars BTS Stay Winning, Scoops Three Top Awards At AMAs

BTS were among the big winners at the American Music Awards (AMAs) on Sunday (21.11.21).

The K-Pop septet scooped three prizes at the Cardi B-hosted ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, including the biggest accolade of the night, Artist of the Year.

The ‘IDOL’ hitmakers also scooped Favourite Pop Duo Or Group and Favourite Pop Song for ‘Butter’.

For Artist Of The Year, the ‘My Universe’ hitmakers – who performed the hit song with Coldplay – beat off stiff competition from Ariana Grande, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd.

RM recalled how nervous they were making their AMAs debut in 2017 and dedicated the win to their loyal ARMY.

He said during their speech for the award at the fan-voted bash: “Four years ago, we had our first ever TV live performance on this stage, AMAs, it was ‘DNA’. We were too excited and nervous at the time and it’s been a long and amazing ride since then, but nobody could have ever bet on the awesome [honour] of standing here and receiving this award – except you, ARMY.

He continued: “Seven boys from Korea united by a love for music met the love and support from all the ARMYs all over the world. This whole thing is a miracle. Seriously, we’ll never take this for granted. Thank you so much.”

Megan, who pulled out of performing due to an “unexpected personal issue”, also won three awards for Favorite Trending Song for ‘Body’, Favorite Female Artist (Hip-Hop) and Favorite Album with ‘Good News’ (Hip-Hop).

She wrote: “Thank you hotties thank you @amas I’m so happy so proud ! I couldn’t be there physically this year but like I said I’m so excited for everything to come next year.”

Doja also claimed three gongs for Collaboration of the Year for ‘Kiss Me More’ with SZA, plus Favorite Female Artist (R&B) and Favorite Album (R&B) with ‘Planet Her’.

Kanye West was named Favorite Gospel artist, while Machine Gun Kelly was crowned the Favorite Rock star.

He said in his speech: “I want to accept this for all the aspiring musicians, the one who desires to play an instrument, wants to rap, wants to sing – not just the rock artists, but all the artists.”

Taylor – who broke the record for the most AMA wins – scooped two awards for Favorite Female Artist (Pop) and Favorite Album (Pop) for ‘evermore’.

And Ed Sheeran took home the male version of the same award.

Despite leading the nominations, Olivia Rodrigo went home with a single prize for New Artist of the Year.

Drake was named Favorite Male Artist in the Hip-Hop category, and The Weeknd nabbed the same title for R&B.
