A pair hours later, the AMAs Twitter account confirmed that BTS will still perform twice, together with as soon as with Coldplay. So it seems like BTS will lengthen their vibrant historical past with the American Music Awards in 2021. BTS made their U.S. TV debut performing “DNA” on the 2017 AMAs. Since then, they have been nominated for 9 awards, and of the six nominations earlier than 2021, they’ve received each final one. This 12 months is the primary time they have been nominated for a foremost award — artist of the 12 months (AotY) — which is arguably the most important award of the evening.
