The K-Pop septet bested international artists including Dan + Shay, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, and Panic! At the Disco.
As they received the prestigious award at the Billboard stage at MGM Grand Garden Arena, RM expressed his gratitude to fans.
“Thank you, ARMY! Thank you, Billboard Music Awards. I still can’t believe that we are here on this stage with so many great artists. This was only possible because of the little things we share together, the BTS and ARMY power,” the proud leader said.
RM also shared that there are many things about them that simply do not change by saying, “We’re still the same boys from six years ago. We still have the same dreams, we still have the same fears, we will have the same thoughts. Let’s keep dreaming the best dreams together. Thank you, I love you all.”
Amid the tough competition posed by fellow K-Pop acts EXO and GOT7 and chart-topping singers Louis Tomlinson and Ariana Grande, BTS, together with their supportive ARMYs, still proved global power as they secured the most number of votes in the fan-voted category.

Back in 2017, the boys received their first nomination at the BBMAs, and eventually broke the longstanding reign of Justin Bieber as the Top Social Artist.
