Korean boy band BTS rocked Hollywood anew after making history as the first K-pop presenters at the 61st annual GRAMMY Awards.

Held Sunday night (US Time) in Los Angeles, California, the star-studded ceremony saw members of the Bangtan Sonyeondan or Beyond the Scenes looking every inch dapper in their coordinating black suits.

“Growing up in South Korea, we always dreamed of being on the Grammys stage. Thank you to all our fans for making this dream come true and we’ll be back,” said RM on behalf of his fellow members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.

Here’s a look at their presentation for the Best R&B Album won by breakthrough singer HER.

 

BTS was also nominated for best recording package for their most recent album ‘Love Yourself: Tear’, which upon its release has skyrocketed to first place in the Billboard 200 albums chart. They were recognized alongside Seoul-based branding company HuskFox.

 

Their entry went against four others: Mitski’s Be the Cowboy, The Chairman’s The Offering, Foxhole’s Well Kept Thing, and St. Vincent’s Masseduction, who ultimately went home with the award.

Previously, the boy group has made waves as the first K-pop group to ever perform at the 2017 American Music Awards, and later, at the New York’s Citi Field Stadium for their ‘Love Yourself’ world tour.

Currently, BTS is taking over the music industry with a solid fan base across different parts of the world. On social media, their Twitter account alone boasts a total number of 18.3 million followers.
