MTV Euro Music Awards had nominated Korean pop band BTS in four categories: Best Collaboration, Best Live, Best Group, and Biggest Fans.

The 2019 MTV EMAs were held on 3 November in Seville, Spain to celebrate the best and brightest in music, with Korean pop band BTS winning numerous awards despite being up against some big names in the industry.

Big Win for K-pop Kings

The seven-man K-pop sensation BTS took home a total of three awards from the EMAs after being nominated in four categories.

For the Best Live award, they went up against Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, P!NK, and Travis Scott.

​The boy band, who also claimed Best Group, won the Biggest Fans award for the second year in a row, for their die-hard BTS Army, beating out fellow nominees Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, and Taylor Swift.

Needless to say, fans were over the moon, as they applauded their idols.

BTS accounts for $4.65 billion of South  Korea's GDP per the Hollywood Reporter, and is the first group since The Beatles to score three No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart in less than a year – a mindboggling feat considering their songs are mostly in Korean.

Last year BTS went on their third world tour - Love Yourself - which ended on 11 August, 2019 with a big show in the South Korean capital of Seoul.

The following day, their music label BigHit Entertaiment announced that the boy band was taking an extended hiatus from performing to to relax and "enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly". In October, the band made a comeback with a gig which marked their Saudi Arabia debut.
