AMA 2021: BTS – First Asian artist to win ‘Artist of the Year’ award

The popular K-pop group BTS made history when it became the first Asian artist to win the Artist of the Year category at the American Music Awards 2021 (AMA2021) music event announced today.

BTS has edged out other contenders like Drake, Ariana Grande, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd for the same category.

Apart from winning the category, BTS also took home two other major trophies, namely Duo/Group Pop Pilihan and Lagu Pop Pilihan through the song Butter.

Four years ago, BTS had its first appearance on the AMA stage through a DNA song performance and the group members said that the victory was like a dream.

“We are excited and nervous at the same time.

“It’s been a very unusual and‘ crazy ’journey since we started as artists.

“No one thought we were here to receive this trophy,” said RM during his speech.

BTS also made an offering with the hit song “Butter” and performed the first live collaboration with Coldplay’s “My Universe”.
