The news was earlier reported by USA media Variety and later on confirmed by Billboard, sending fans to celebrate on Twitter using the trend #BTSxGrammys immediately.
Now, completing for their first Grammy, BTS will go up against the likes of St. Vincent, Foxhole, The Chairman and Mitski in their category.
K-pop group BTS will appear at the 2019 Grammys, but not to perform.
BTS's album Love Yourself: Tear is nominated for Best Recording Package which mainly focuses on the visual look of the album package.
The group, which made their debut in 2013, are known for their blend of hip-hop with rock and pop elements. In fact, we're starting to think that RADIO.COM bringing together BTS and BSB last year could actually lead to some incredible things this year. Unfortunately, the sources revealed other nominees like Taylor Swift, who is nominated for best pop vocal album for "Reputation", and Maroon 5, who is nominated for best pop duo/group performance for "Girls Like You" with Cardi B, would not be attending the event. Live performances include Brandi Carlile, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes and many more!
