BTS makes history at the 61st Grammy Awards as the first K-Pop presenters.

On Sunday night (Feb. 10), Beyond the Scene (BTS) made their Grammy debut and made history as the first K-pop group to present at the Grammy Awards. RM (Namjoon), V (Taehyung), Jimin, Jungkook, Suga (Yoongi), J-Hope (Hoseok), and Jin took the stage in style for the best R&B album category. The Korean boy band awarded the Grammy to H.E.R. for her self-titled album. “Growing up in South Korea, we always dreamed of being on the Grammys stage,” said RM. “Thank you to all our fans for making this dream come true and we’ll be back.”

BTS’s success has been nothing but inspiring. They have become international superstars and household names. From albums topping the Billboard 200, to sold-out stadiums, teamwork has indeed made the dream a reality. BTS’s most recent album, Love Yourself: Tear, became the first K-Pop album to reach number one on the Billboard 200, and they were nominated for Best Recording Package at this year’s Grammys.

Congratulations, BTS! 2019 will be yours.
