Boy band BTS will perform at the 2017 American Music Awards (AMAs), a first for a K-pop group.
Dick Clark Productions and network ABC announced that BTS will be making their first-ever US television performance at the AMAs on Nov. 19 in Los Angeles with their hit song “DNA,” the carrier single of the band’s latest album “Love Yourself: Her.”
“ARMY, it’s happening,” the AMAs tweeted to BTS fans.
BTS said it’s an honor to be chosen to perform at the music awards show.
“We are so excited to be invited to the American Music Awards and to perform on the stage for the first time. All the members are honored to be on the show with other amazing artists, and we’re proud to share this great news with our fans, ARMY,” said the chart-topping group.
This will be the second time this year that BTS will attend an American music awards show. Last May, the boys went to the Billboard Music Awards (BBMA) where they won the Top Social Artist award.
BTS is in the first lineup of performers that the AMAs announced along with music legend Diana Ross, Christina Aguilera, and Selena Gomez.
The group’s new album debuted at No. 7 on Billboard 200, the highest rank achieved by a K-pop act. They also achieved their dream when “DNA” entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the second K-pop artist to do so after Psy.
