BTS become first K-pop act to receive a Grammy nomination


BTS earned its first major Grammy nomination on Tuesday, with members of the band sharing their live reaction to hearing the news on the group’s Twitter account.

Members V, Jung Kook, RM and Jimin are sitting on the couch watching the Grammy nominations in the 19-second clip. V expresses shock as the other three jump to their feet with excitement for their nomination in the best pop duo/group performance category.

Other nominees this year shared similar reactions online after hearing the good news. Best new artist and record of the year nominee Megan Thee Stallion celebrated her Grammy nominations by giving back.

The rapper shared a link to her new album “Good News” and asked Twitter followers to share their Cashapp usernames for a chance to win money. “Hotties let’s celebrate the Grammy nominations and my new album,” she said in the post.

Prior to the announcement of the big four Grammy awards, she had also racked up two nominations for best rap performance and best rap song, marking her first-ever nods by the prestigious show.
