Fans are also extremely delighted at the news because finally, BTS is being nominated and recognized not just for their immense popularity but also for their excellent musicality, as well.

With this historical and unparalleled feat of the group, they have become lined up against bands and duos like Maroon 5, Panic! At The Disco, Imagine Dragons, and Dan + Shay as their competitors for the title.
