BTS weren't able to make it to Los Angeles for the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, but that didn't stop the mega-talented septet from stealing the show all the way from South Korea.
The seven superstars — RM, Jin, Jimin, V, Suga, J-Hope and Jungkook — went into the evening with four nominations, including Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Social Artist and Top Selling Song... and they won in every single category.
"It's really an honor to be a winner of such a significant title," RM enthused in a taped segment that aired after the group won Top Selling Song for "Dynamite."
The danceable bop faced stiff competition in the category: Other nominees included Gabby Barrett and Charlie Puth's "I Hope," Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP," The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" and Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé's "Savage" remix.
Another notable win was in the fan-voted Top Social Artist category. There they faced off against BLACKPINK, Ariana Grande, SB19 and Seventeen. Tonight's win marked their fifth time taking home the honor.
That's not all, though: BTS also delivered the first televised performance of their new single, "Butter." Beaming in from Seoul, South Korea, they pulled out all the stops with a tightly choreographed routine and impressive vocals.
Their fans, BTS ARMY, loved every minute of it.
"This dance break has changed me for LIFE," one fan tweeted. "I am a new person with hopes, dreams, and joy."
"FIVE. YEARS. IN. A. ROW," another wrote in regards to the group's fifth Top Social Artist win. "Congratulations to army and @BTS_twt for getting TSA for half a decade!"
