K-pop sensation BTS has added another feat to its long list of accolades, turning into the primary Korean artist to be nominated for the yearly Brit Awards.
The seven-piece act was assigned for the international group award, close by musicians Fontaines D.C., four-time winner Foo Fighters, HAIM and Run the Jewels.
Past champs in the category include prominent acts like Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2 and Daft Punk.
The current year’s awards ceremony, which was delayed because of the pandemic, is planned to be held at the O2 Arena in London on May 11. It will be broadcast live by ITV.
Launched in 1977, the Brit Awards is a popular music awards associated with the British Phonographic Industry.
The group’s nomination comes a year after Brit Awards faced criticism from BTS fans for eliminating the international group award while keeping the best international male and female categories in the 2020 occasion, the BBC announced.
BTS has won numerous global music awards over the previous year because of the phenomenal success of its Billboard-topping hits “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On.”
The group was the main Korean nominee to perform at the yearly Grammy Awards, held in March this year.
