After being named Artist of the Year at the 2021 American Music Awards, BTS earned another achievement in the form of their second Grammy nomination.
For the second year in a row, the seven-member music sensation from South Korea has been nominated for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance for their hit single “Butter” at the annual Grammy Awards.

"This is a huge honor," the group said in their official Twitter account. "Thanks to everyone who supports our music journey!"
BTS is up against “Higher Power” by Coldplay, “I Get a Kick Out of You” by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, “Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat and SZA and “Lonely” by Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco.
Last year’s Grammy for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance went to Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande for their dance track "Rain On Me.”
BTS remains the only South Korean act to be nominated for a Grammy in the pop categories.
