K-pop super band BTS probably wouldn't have ever imagined that their single, Dynamite, which they released during the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, would become a global hit and earn them their first ever Grammy nomination in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. They had even set the stage on fire with a virtual performance of their hit single, Dynamite, at the 63rd Grammy Awards, which took place in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 14). However, they lost to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's Rain on Me.
Though the septet was content with all the love they have received for their Grammy nomination, it was their teeming fan-base, widely known as BTS ARMY, which let them down this time around.
The moment BTS' Dynamite was nominated at this year’s Grammys, ARMY had high hopes that their favourite K-pop band would surely bring the prestigious award home. Dynamite had topped the Billboard's main singles chart last year and had garnered over 800 million YouTube views in January this year, resulting in the band earning its first-ever career No. 1 on the Billboard's main singles chart. The song then stayed at the position for months.
But despite all that, BTS just couldn't land on to their maiden Grammy victory, which would have been a huge honour for a K-pop band. Their loss didn't go well with BTS ARMY, which began trolling the Grammy Awards, saying that it has lost its relevance.
Winning and losing is part and parcel for any artist and it shouldn't be compared with one's success or failure. BTS has already won billions of hearts across the globe and made its presence felt not just at the Grammys, but also in the international music space. Army's emotions are understandable, but they should've cherished BTS' biggest moment of their career rather than putting them on a wrong pedestal.
BTS members tried to calm Army down saying that they would work harder in the coming year and bring the coveted trophy home. They also shared their disappointing moment when they lost to Rain On Me with their fans, and proceeded to have a good laugh over it. We hope BTS Army realises how they are capable of making or breaking the band’s image on the global stage.
