This past weekend we celebrated the biggest night in American music, but it was seven Korean men who truly made the night theirs by scooping awards and wowing the world. Our boys BTS were finally able to perform in front of a live audience for the first time in almost two years and celebrate their international success at the same time. Let’s take a look at some of the best content that the Bangtan boys blessed us with at the AMAs.
‘My Universe’ Live Collaboration For The First Time
At long last, we managed to get both BTS and Coldplay together to see them perform ‘My Universe’ live and it was a real moment. Two iconic bands uniting as one performing one of the best collabs of the year definitely had us in our living rooms pretending to be in the audience belting out every single lyric. We had to practice for when we finally see them live, okay?
The Red Carpet Looks
When we saw BTS step out on the carpet we were truly ascending. The new hairdos, the outfits, they looked phenomenal and we are not worthy. That’s all we are willing to say or we’ll end up writing a novel’s worth on this.
The Beckytan Reunion
As you know, BTS and Becky G are pretty solid. Between the ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’ collab with her and j-hope as well as rubbing shoulders at other star-studded events, they are fans of each other. So seeing them post-awards posing together after their big wins especially after so long had our multistan hearts soaring.
Artist Of The Year
To think that their AMAs and American awards show debut was winning Top Social Artist four years ago and now they’re out here winning all their nominations including the big Artist of the Year had us sobbing. It was a proud moment as ARMY and while they may not have expected to be walking away with the grand prize, we didn’t doubt them for a moment. Hearing all of their speeches was music to our ears and their beaming faces was a picture that will be engraved into our memories forever. As well as Artist of the Year, the boys also bagged Pop Song for ‘Butter’ and Favorite Pop Duo or Group. LEGENDS.

Speaking of the speeches, the Jinkook moment? Iconic. It was just a small but brilliant reminder that this is who BTS are: truly and authentically themselves.
The ‘Butter’ Performance
— American Music Awards (@AMAs) November 22, 2021
Finally seeing ‘Butter’ performed with a live crowd was incredible. And seeing all the artists and non-ARMY who recognize the song from its success all vibing along was such a lovely thing to see, it felt like their moment.
Literally Having ARMY Right Behind Them

The best part about the ‘Butter’ performance was when the lyric “got ARMY right behind us when we say so” and literally getting to see ARMY behind them as the stage turned purple broke us. Of course, everyone has been impacted by everything that’s happened in the past two years, but BTS’s yearn for being reunited with their beloved fans was felt so strongly by each member that when the moment that they could be together again came, it was so overwhelming and magical. WE’RE NOT CRYING, YOU ARE.
Their Reactions In The Audience
Seeing @NKOTB performed at the #AMAs was special.
Brought back memories to my teenage days when I was listening to them.
Today as a #BTSARMY, watching @BTS_twt vibing when Donnie, Danny, Jonathan, Jordan & Joey’s was on stage, brought my ‘boyband experience’ full circle 😊 pic.twitter.com/zJRc0PZViw

When they weren’t on stage performing or thanking ARMY for the awards they’d just won, BTS were vibing in the crowd and it was truly a moment. They really enjoyed the show having so much fun and it’s what they deserve, tbh.
Their Post-Show Thanks
BTS and ARMY😍 pic.twitter.com/y8m76sy0ci
— 방탄소년단 (@BTS_twt) November 22, 2021
As always in true BTS style, the members took to both Twitter and Weverse to post selfies and gratitude towards ARMY for everything. They may be taking home three trophies but we got to save a bunch of brand new pics and tbh that for us is a prize in itself.
Okay, our eyes are dry from all the tears. We’re gonna go listen to ‘I’m Fine’ to convince ourselves we are emotionally stable right now.
