    Three K-Pop Groups Are Nominated For The 2019 BBMAs, And BTS Scores A New Category

    *waits for ARMYs, EXO-Ls, and iGOT7s to collectively break the Internet*

    You know BTS, right? Two-time winners of the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards in 2017 and 2018? Well, SURPRISE, they're nominated again this year!

    And, in recognition of their continued rise and success, they're also nominated for Top Duo/Group, making them the first Korean act to be listed in that category.

    #BBMAs Top Duo/Group: 🔹 @BTS_twt 🔹 @DanAndShay 🔹 @Imaginedragons 🔹 @maroon5 🔹 @PanicAtTheDisco

    That's a pretty stacked list, but as you know *looks at Twitter or literally anywhere else on the Internet* their fandom, ARMY, never messes around.

    BUT!!! And a big but it is — they're not the only K-pop artist nominated this year. You read that right: EXO and GOT7 are also up for Top Social Artist!

    Let's repeat that for good measure...



    I, like many fans, am super happy that K-pop groups are gaining award nominations across the globe, because heaven knows they've racked up tons in Asia alone.

    You see all that talent - BTS, EXO and GOT7 are immensely powerful and BBMAs better be ready!! 🤩🤩🤩
