    BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band that became a global sensation after releasing their first album in 2013, and recently the extremely popular K-Pop band scored their first major Grammy nomination in the best pop duo/group performance category for their song "Dynamite."

    The first BTS single to be performed entirely in English, "Dynamite", received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards which, had they won, would have made them the first K-Pop act to win one of the coveted music industry accolades. However, this Sunday the band did not take home the desired award, as the prize went instead to two pop-queens for Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's "Rain on Me."

    The BTS Army, fans of the South Korean megastars, were reportedly furious over the 2021 Grammy loss, getting #scammys and #BTSOurGreatestPrize trending on twitter.

    ​Some twitter users were more optimistic about the K-pop band's loss, hoping for a future victory.

    The seven-member group's No. 1 single “Dynamite” is an upbeat track which topped the Hot 100 and epitomized last year’s disco revival. It also marked the first BTS single to be performed entirely in English.
