Reacting to Gaga and Grande’s win, Suga said, “Let’s run/work even harder this year!” BTS leader RM said, “Army is the best !!!!” Jungkook also reacted to the loss and said, “Thank you all for being together with us in each and every moment, and… I will be sure to give back to you all of the love and messages of support you’ve given/sent us.”
Jimin also shared a selfie from the Grammy night and said, “Everyone, you’ve worked hard staying all this time to be together with us! Thank you for cheering us on, and it’s thanks to you all that we’ve been able to have this unimaginably special experience. I want to thank you, truly, and I’m happy, ARMY! I love you.”
During the 20-minute live, the team talked about how they were feeling when the winner was about to be announced, and how they took several takes to perfect their performance on the Grammy stage. J-Hope went on to talk about how RM turned superstitious ahead of the ceremony. “Namjoon tried to free stand a water bottle saying ‘if I succeed, we will win’ but he kept failing,” he revealed.
