A Breakdown of BTS’s Many Grammy Nominations
BTS has been nominated for hundreds of awards throughout their career. While their music has been getting recognized in South Korea since their debut in 2013, it wasn’t until four years later that they began to really make waves in the United States. It all started in May 2017 when the septet took home the award for Top Social Artist at the Billboard Music Awards. The achievement catapulted BTS to even greater fame in the Western music industry because, the following year, they not only earned another BBMA, but an American Music Award, People’s Choice Award, iHeartRadio Music Award, and more. Since then, BTS has only added to their extensive award show collection in the U.S.
While BTS has so much to be proud of, the group has said one goal they haven’t checked off their list yet is winning a Grammy. They’ve been nominated by the Recording Academy a few times in recent years, but haven’t come out on top just yet. After the group came out empty-handed at the 2022 Grammy Awards, Jin told reporters during an April 10 press conference that BTS would continue chasing their goal. “This year won’t be our last chance, but we can try anytime we want in the future,” he said. “So, we’ll do our best.”
Following the release of their “Proof” compilation album in June, reports came out that BTS had submitted four of their songs for Grammy consideration, making fans hopeful 2023 would be the year the group would finally win their first Grammy.
