American Music Awards: K-Pop Superstars BTS to Perform for First Time on U.S. Show


The group will perform its hit single “DNA” at the Nov. 19 ceremony.

South Korean group BTS continues its upward trajectory in the American music sphere after it was announced that the K-pop superstars will be performing their hit single, “DNA,” at the American Music Awards on Nov. 19.

While the AMAs will be the group’s second American awards ceremony this year, after their appearance at this year’s Billboard Music Awards, it’ll mark their first time performing at one.

“It is such an honor for BTS and BigHit Entertainment to be invited to the American Music Awards as one of the performers,” a representative from the band’s label told Forbes. “Our partners in the U.S. have helped us pave the way in every way possible, and together we are making history. We are also excited to show our fans, ARMY, the first-ever U.S. live TV performance of ‘DNA.’”

Shortly after the news was announced, the boy band’s dedicated fan base, ARMY, made #btsxamas trend worldwide on Twitter.

The septet has enjoyed increasing stateside momentum following their win for Top Social Artist at the Billboard Music Awards in May. Since then, they’ve broken records as the only Korean artist to break into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and the highest-charting K-pop group on the Hot 100 with their single, “DNA.”
