BTS created history by becoming the first Korean group to have a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with their first English-language track ‘Dynamite.’ Now, the K-pop group stated that they have set Grammys as their next goal.
“We went to the Grammys at the beginning of the year and did a collaborative performance. Now I would like to do a single performance with just BTS on the Grammy awards stage,” said group member Suga at an online press conference late Tuesday evening. “It would be great to receive an award, but that’s not going to become a reality just because we want it. For now, just getting to perform on the Grammy award stage is our goal.”
RM said, “The Grammy awards are what all performers dream of. Of course we’d like to perform there. It would be great to receive the award — that is the direction we should be headed for.”
At the press conference, they also said that the new track couldn’t have reached the number one position if it didn’t resonate with a portion of the general U.S. public beyond their fans. It might have appealed because it is “more familiar because of the language and other elements” similar to Americans, such as being a disco pop track.
After their performance at the 2020 MTV VMAs, they became the first Korean musical act to perform at all four major American music award shows.
