Group BTS (RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook) will participate in the 61st Grammy Awards.
The BTS will be participating as a winner at the Grammy Awards, according to Big Hit Entertainment on February 5.
Earlier, U.S. media VARIETY reported on Thursday (local time) that BTS will participate in the Grammy Awards, drawing attention from fans. TIME and Billboard also published an online article citing the VARIETY report.
Sources also say nominees Taylor Swift and Maroon 5 will not be attending — the former is up for one award, best pop vocal album (“Reputation”), and the latter for best pop duo/group performance (for “Girls Like You,” with Cardi B). The ultimate get would be an appearance by Drake, whose reaction to awards shows in general has usually been tepid at best.
The Grammys, hosted by Alicia Keys, will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT. Performers confirmed so far include Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Post Malone with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, and Kacey Musgraves.
The 61st annual Grammy Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for the Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Ben Winston is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is a director, Chantel Sausedo is the producer, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.
Before the award ceremony, Korean branding firm Husky Fox, which is the art director of album art for BTS’s third regular album “LOVE YOURSELF 轉 ‘Tear’), was nominated for “Best Recording Package” of Grammy Awards. The album was released by BTS in May last year.
