BTS is Officially Performing at the 2017 AMAs

ARMYs get ready, because BTS has officially been confirmed to perform at this year’s American Music Awards! The performance, which will be held on November 19th in Los Angeles, will mark the K-Pop group’s live television debut in the United States.

The official Twitter account for the AMAs tweeted the news this morning, after sending a mysterious tweet last night teasing the announcement of a big performer.

In the clip, Rap Monster can be heard saying, “Please ARMY remember what we say, love myself, love yourself.” The quote is taken from the group’s acceptance speech from the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, where they won the Top Social Artist award. Although the BBMAs marked the group’s first television appearance in the United States, the American Music Awards will mark the group’s first television performance in the country.

According to the American Music Awards website, BTS will perform their hit single “DNA” from their EP Love Yourself: Her. The album has achieved great success in the US, debuting at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the highest-ever for a K-Pop act. It is also spending its sixth week on the Billboard 200 charts, more than any of the group’s previous releases.

“We are so excited to be invited to the American Music Awards and to perform on the stage for the first time,” said BTS in a statement. “All the members are honored to be on the show with other amazing artists, and we’re proud to share this great news with our fans, ARMY.”

Other performers announced for the 2017 AMAs include Diana Ross, Christina Aguilera, and Selena Gomez.
