Korean septet BTS will become the first-ever K-pop group to perform at the Billboard Music Awards next month, where they are nominated for the Top Social Artist award.
The news was announced on social media this morning (April 24), and on top of it all, BTS will be giving fans the world television premiere of their new single when they take the stage. The group will also release their Love Yourself Tear album just two days before their appearance at the awards show.
Airing on NBC, the 2018 BBMAs will mark the boy band’s second appearance at the event following their Top Social Artist win last year.
“Look out for our second appearance or - say what?- FIRST PERFORMANCE at the BBMAs!” BTS wrote in English on their official Twitter account. In Korean, they wrote a similar message and also thanked their fandom, ARMY. “Thank you ARMY for making our performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards possible. Please expect a lot from our performance.”
