The South Korean septet have achieved another goal proving that they can achieve anything they set their eyes on. BTS has become the K-Pop band to receive a Grammy nomination for Best duo/Group. The news surfaced last night, and ever since, it has been breaking news in South Korea. BTS has broken many records, but Grammy was always on the top of their list. And finally, the boys are living their dream. A cute video was also posted on Twitter by BTS showing their cute reaction after hearing the news.
BTS just launched their highly anticipated album ‘BE,’ which also features their mega-hit track, Dynamite. Dynamite was released in August, and it spread its magic all over the globe in seconds. Dynamite was also the band’s first-ever all-English single, proving that they are a global sensation for a reason. BTS are nominated for their song ‘Dynamite’, which adds another victory to the song’s huge list.

Grammy And The Excitement
Saying that the boys were on cloud nine will be an understatement. After the announcement was made, BTS made sure to share their happiness with their Army. We can see Jung Kook, V (Tae Hyung), RM (Nam Joon), and Park Jimin seated on a couch and listening to the announcements in the video. All the four of them had their eyes stuck on the screen, and the moment ‘Dynamite’ appeared on screen, they begin to shout and jump in excitement. Well, only Jung Kook, Nam Joon, and Jimin were the ones who were expressing their true self. However, V sat in the corner with a mischievous yet calm look. But we know deep inside he was thrilled as well.
Only 4 out of the seven members were present in the video as Suga is still recovering from his shoulder surgery; Whereas, J-hope revealed that he was sleeping at the time. We don’t know where Jin was, but we think he was enjoying his sleep too.
BTS are competing against artists Justin Beiber/ Quavo, Lady Gaga/ Arian Grande, Dua Lipa/ J Balvin, Bad Bunny/Tainy, and Taylor Swift/ Bon Iver.
