Will BTS Perform During The 2017 Billboard Music Awards?

"BTS is the ARMY!"

Posted on

South Korean boyband Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) has certainly made a name for themselves in the K-Pop sphere. And in the last few years, these seven members have taken the international market by storm with their amazing music.

With their last two released albums, 'WINGS' and 'You Never Walk Alone,' BTS has made strides on American music charts. In particular, they've dominated iTunes and the Billboard Top 200, but they've also been mentioned in countless other music ranking lists.

And this doesn't include their sold-out world tour.

Such impressive numbers naturally earned recognition from Billboard.

BTS was nominated for as "Top Social Artist(s)" alongside the likes of top-selling American artists, such as: Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Shawn Mendes.

Though some wondered how a K-pop boyband would stack up against such big names, BTS fans, also known as the "ARMY," heard the call and have ecstatically voted for the group they love so much. And after news broke that BTS would attend the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, the ARMY relentlessly showed their support.

Nothing has been formally confirmed, but it sure looks they will be! Fingers crossed for a surprise performance. 🤞

But seriously, why else would BTS be in the empty T-Mobile arena a day before the BBMAs?

Either those chairs are the most comfortable seats ever that BTS felt that they had to get a picture to commemorate their discovery, OR they're in the arena because they've been practicing. Hmm... makes you wonder.

Not to mention Jimin made it a point to hide his credentials.

If BTS isn't performing, why did Jimin make a point of blocking their title with his thumb? And if you look closely, the last letter on his credential looks like it could be an 'R.' Last time we checked, "PERFORMER" ended with an 'R,' not "GUEST" or "ATTENDEE."
