BTS got snubbed at the Grammy Awards again.

The K-pop superstars – clearly, the biggest South Korean act in history – won two nominations at the 65th Grammy Awards: music video for “Yet to Come” and pop duo/group performance for “My Universe” with Coldplay. However, the septet lost to Taylor Swift for music video (ALL TOO WELL: THE SHORT FILM) and to Sam Smith and Kim Petras for pop duo/group performance (“Unholy”).

This is the third year the boys were nominated for pop duo/group performance for “Dynamite” in 2021 and “Butter” in 2022, but the trophy went to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain on Me,” then Doja Cat and SZA’s “Kiss Me More.”

After BTS’ loss last year, RM told a Las Vegas crowd, “I know there’s a lot of noises out there about our Grammys and the team itself. … But, you know, why give a s— about it? Hating is their freedom, and they have their right to hate, but if it was me, I’d rather just talk with my friends in some cafe and forget about it — rather than tweeting about it or some interview. I wouldn’t do that ‘cause I’m a grown-up.”

With BTS members’ enlistment coming up, the act’s promotion as a whole group won’t be available for a couple of years. So this year’s Grammy snub hurts the fans even more.

  • There are many singers/groups that get nominated over the years and do not win. The nomination itself is recognition of how good the group is!
