BTS Just Made History At The 2020 VMAs

BTS low-key stole the show at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards. Not only did the guys snag a handful of awards — best group, best pop, best K-Pop, and best choreography — but they also performed their first English-language single, "Dynamite," for the first time ever. Needless to say, it was a very big deal, but what was an even bigger deal was that their performance earned BTS a spot in history as the first Korean music group to perform at the four biggest music awards shows in the United States: The Grammy Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the American Music Awards, and the MTV Video Music Awards.

BTS performed at the 2020 Grammy alongside a roster of other artists for Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road." The members of BTS — RM, V, Suga, Jimin, J-Hope, Jin, and Jungkook — provided a K-pop twist on that popular song. The group made its BBMAs debut in 2018 with "Fake Love" and the guys also performed at the 2019 show, bringing "Boy With Luv" to the stage with Halsey at their side. Their first American Music Awards performance was actually their U.S. TV debut. They performed "DNA" on the 2017 show. And then, of course, BTS debuted "Dynamite" on the 2020 MTV VMAs to round out the big four.

BTS is on top of the world and smashing records

K-pop has steadily been growing in popularity in the United States over the past few years, and now it's mainstream. Along the way, BTS just keeps growing and growing into the superstar group it is now. In addition to the awards won at the 2020 MTV VMAs, the members of BTS have already won hundreds of other accolades. Yes, literally hundreds. They've amassed awards from all over the world, including several in the States.

In case you still haven't figured out just how massive BTS truly is, this group also has a few Guinness World Records. According to Billboard, the group holds the record for biggest video debut on YouTube with "Dynamite," which scored 101 million views in the first 24 hours. They're also in the record books as the first Korean group to have a U.S. No. 1 and they made history as the group with a No. 1 song on the most iTunes charts simultaneously, per The National.

BTS has sold out stadium shows across the entire world and practically break the internet every time they do, well, anything. We foresee many more records in the future for these talented performers.
