BTS and BLACKPINK nominated for 2022 MTV VMAs’ group of year
K-pop supergroups BTS and BLACKPINK have been nominated for group of the year in the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, the U.S. music channel has announced.
The two K-pop bands will compete for Best Group Of The Year with City Girls, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Maneskin, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Silk Sonic, MTV said Friday (U.S. time) on its homepage and social media.
BTS has won group of the year, one of the three socially voted categories along with Song Of Summer and Album Of The Year, in the last three years.
Jungkook of BTS was nominated for Song Of Summer for “Left and Right,” his collaborative single with U.S. singer-songwriter Charlie Puth.
The additions increased to six the total number of categories where BTS got a nod in this year’s event.
The group has earlier been announced as a nominee for Best K-pop, Best Choreography, Best Visual Effects and Best Metaverse Performance.
BLACKPINK will also perform at the awards show slated for Aug. 28 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. (Yonhap)
