This is the first time that BTS has been nominated for an American Music Award. Last November, they made their U.S. television debut performance at the award show when they took the stage with “DNA.”
The American Music Awards will take place on October 9 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and will be broadcast live on ABC. The show will be hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross.
BTS is currently on a sold-out world tour, with their next stop set for September 12 in Oakland. They will be performing their first solo stadium concert in the United States on October 6 at Citi Field in New York City, and will perform in London at the O2 Arena on October 9.
